I sure love a good Fisk-ing of Paul Krugman, and that's what we get here from John Weidner. Krugman only reinforces the fact that the New York Times is a laughing stock. The problem with Krugman is not merely that he is a mouthpiece for the Democrat party but that he'll happily use what credibility he has an economist ( long since pissed away among those who bother to keep up in the field ) to steamroller right over economic reality to slander Republicans in general and President Bush in particular.
After showing several overt whoppers from Krugman, including a point where Krugman deliberately misrepresents the economics of logging, Weidner finishes with this:
By the way, we haven't heard much from Krugman about CitiGroup lately, have we?
Nope, not a word.
