The Stopped Clock, Krugman

Paul Krugman:

Racism, misogyny and character assassination are all ways of distracting voters from the issues, and people who care about the issues have a shared interest in making the politics of hatred unacceptable

I agree.

By the way, that remark was directed at the Obama primary-campaign team's tactics.

You can look it up, just like Jacobson did.

So again, what's your point? Who's Krugman to me? He's not an elected official. I didn't vote for him--I don't think he even ran for anything. He's not even a representative of the Democratic party.

He's just an individual expressing his Constitutional right to Free Speech. He can be wrong just as much as he pleases. Just like you.

You see, I believe that what you are attempting to do is execute the "Straw Man" strategy. Set up a phoney controversy so that, at long last, you can feel the insubstantial satisfication of feeling as if you have made a powerful moral argument. When in fact both the controversy and the resolution lie both within your own head alone.

C'mon, Dad. You have to delete this one, too. Otherwise people won't know the depth of your fear of being challenged on the facts.

Please, Dom. Really? At worst, Krugman is a mouthpiece for this administration and at best an apologist. He is hypocritical and uses the same language against the TEA Party movement that he claims to condemn.

Seriously, dude. Get a grip.

BTW, you are such a pitiful challenger that Dad allows me to do his "light work"
