So there is only like 2 people left with subscriptions to the Slimes?

I guess they’ll have to lay off more low level workers to keep their quality writers like Krugman and Dowd....

Good for you Secretary Rumsfeld. I don’t know why anyone still subscribes to that sewer spewer.

Maybe I will get a subscription just so I can cancel.

I canceled my Austin un American, non statesman, ultra liberal, longhorn pravda subscription when they ran a story of “Third Chimp Escapes From Bastrop Center” and had a picture of President Bush next to it.

Krugman was too much of a chickenshit to even take comments. Who dare question his lordship?

I’d like to see Drudge and FR ban any article by Krugman. Let him wither in his irrelevancy in his own diseased mind.

What the NYT puts in their opinion pieces is their business. What I have problems with is that it is hard to tell the difference between their news section and their opinion section.

I have always thought that people in positions of interest, influence or power have to subscribe to pieces of crap like the NYT, so that they can keep their finger on a pulse of some kind.

Hah, what a freudian slip there. As I was typing “pulse of some kind” I typed “pulse of SLIME kind”! Shoulda left it that way, I guess...:)

Fraidy cat. He knows he’s wrong deep down and doesn’t want to be shown that he is.

If the NY Slimes had any decency, they would fire Krugman.

The 1st Amendment does not guarantee every fringe quack a forum to publish their extremist, ignorant ideological doctrines.

The Slimes should say “You know what Paul, your right to say something does NOT mean we have to publish your hyper bigoted, ignorant nonsense. Start you own paper if you want to publish such rubbish”

Because conservative news is hard to come by, we need to have a newspaper thread with only conservative papers listed. I’ll have to bookmark the Herald. Thanks!

Krugman’s article reeked of desperation. It’s apparent his hero Obama looks to be going down next year and it’s even more apparent we can finally bury the fallacy of Keynesian economics. On a purely superficial basis, Paul Krugman..really, this is to be the messaging by the DemonCrat Intelligentsia, he reeks of rumpled, academic, communista out of touch, from the salt and pepper beard with yesterday’s lunch in it to his beady eyes. I think he needs a literary persona, like Spengler, because I am sure beyond Berkley, Manhattan and New Haven the face of Paul Krugman elicits the gag reflex. Kinda fits in Michael Savage’s ugly man theory on why sexual denied men grow up to be angry liberals, they become homosexuals or become Paul Krugman.

Since the POS Krugman didn’t aglow comments on this article, the correct answer is to express our disagreement with this piece on every other piece he writes.

In other words, whatever he writes from here on out, flood the comments section with responses to this piece. Let’s make it his “little Eichmann” moment.

Krugman, “I’m not going to allow comments on this post, for obvious reasons.”

Because he knows he is deliberately offending people and he is too chicken-shit to make a statement, then stand up to criticism of that statement. That's pretty obvious to me. Freakin' pansy. I guess expecting someone like Krugman to "man up" is asking a little too much.

Isn’t Krugman the rich kid NYT columnist that tried to say that Sarah Palin shot Gabrielle Giffords?

They seem to give Nobel prizes now to extra dumb people.

GWB and Rudy never once called themselves heroes. Other people called them heroes because of what they saw these men do and by the actions they took. While Kruegman sat on his ass in front of a computer screen or more likely fled the city, others did the hard work so he could later write crap commentary from the safety of his luxury home.
