F U Paul Krugman, There's Your Comment

F U Paul Krugman.  Yep.  That's it.  I mean what else needs to be said to this most despicable, angry little person?  In his interestingly titled New York Times column, The Conscience of a Liberal, he posted a little piece (emphasis intentional) called The Years of Shame.  

I'm reposting here so you don't have to bother to visit the NY Times.  I'm not sure what this guy's major malfunction is and I know he has written some pretty bizarre stuff in the past but this one takes it for me.  

On the 10th anniversary of 9/11... (1) Fake hero (2) George Bush (3) raced to cash in on the horror (4) memory of 9/11 now irrevocably poisoned (it was so wonderful before) and is now an occasion for shame.  

I could go on but why?  Enjoy the photos.  Yes, they're real and as is often the case, say it better than I could ever.  And speaking of saying it, the last line of Krugman's post tells you everything you need to know about him and his liberal mindset.  It should be on t-shirts! "I’m not going to allow comments on this post, for obvious reasons."  F U Paul Krugman. There's your comment.

The Years of Shame 

Is it just me, or are the 9/11 commemorations oddly subdued?

Actually, I don’t think it’s me, and it’s not really that odd.

What happened after 9/11 — and I think even people on the right know this, whether they admit it or not — was deeply shameful. Te atrocity should have been a unifying event, but instead it became a wedge issue. Fake heroes like Bernie Kerik, Rudy Giuliani, and, yes, George W. Bush raced to cash in on the horror. And then the attack was used to justify an unrelated war the neocons wanted to fight, for all the wrong reasons.

A lot of other people behaved badly. How many of our professional pundits — people who should have understood very well what was happening — took the easy way out, turning a blind eye to the corruption and lending their support to the hijacking of the atrocity?

The memory of 9/11 has been irrevocably poisoned; it has become an occasion for shame. And in its heart, the nation knows it.

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