Krugman emission joins the "Twice Around the Bowl" Club
before the sand in his little kitchen egg timer empties. He hurls Molotov cocktails at his political enemies, while hiding behind his hallowed desk at the Fishwrap of Record. His 181-word turd demonstrates perfectly the leftist approach to combating Islamic jihad: Cut and run. Michelle Malkin A few more words about Koward Krugman
Posted by Vanderleun at September 11, 2011 10:46 PM. This is an entry on the sideblog of American Digest: Check it out.
At least his column has the appropriate name: "The Conscience of Liberal."
Goes right along with "The Accomplishments of a Community Organizer" or "The Sex Life of Maureen Dowd."

Is "conscience" another word for paranoid delusion?

He didn't dare open it to comments.

I keep rewriting my comments.
How about this one: I wonder if Krugman has ever done anything that could be considered noble?

What a vile twerp he is.

Rumsfeld tweets that he has cancelled his subscription over this piece. One wonders what took him so long?

I was troubled hearing an interview with a photog who snapped iconic shots of the towers falling.. even speaking on the doomed souls in his photos, he was detached.. scientifically so. He spoke of his work like a piece of art he created and wondered how it compared to other iconic photos. It was at that point, I realized there is something deeply lacking in liberal journalists. Laura Logan's story, her inability to understand the beast in Egypt even after it literally nearly ripped her apart (in addition to the fact that all over her narrow conclusions were WRONG), Christiane Amanpour's strange pride in a painting of a burning tower that hangs in her dining room. Utter detachment. They perpetuate conflict to guarantee their own chances to distinguishing themselves in the midst of their own flames. Full stop. America's fighting spirit was on full display this weekend. Even our goofy VP understood that. He sounded like a theatrical JV football coach.. and loved him for it, at least for the moment. Let's face it.. the Left were made to look very small over the 9/11 anniversary weekend. And I think Krugman was just having a little temper tantrum.

Heard the opinion of a "Nobel-Prize-winning" economist on the radio this morning. Once upon a time I thought that meant what he said would be very learned and profound. With the recent obviously-political Nobel awards, it now means to me that I will hear something that is politically correct and in line with leftist thinking like Obama's. Surprise - that is exactly what I heard, right down to the cherry on top about govenrment gridlock causing the economy to collapse. He held back from blaming "evil Republicans", so he probably is considered by the media to be a bipartisan expert!

Casca, your comments brought to mind perfectly the image of the travelers in the movie, The Grand Tour: Disaster in Time. It's a story of time travelers who venture back and forth in time to witness epic disasters. They usually arrive some place the night before the disaster strikes in order to get good seats to watch the disasters of the past before moving on to the next epic tragedy. They are cool, detached and droll about each horror they witness, moving in and among the people whose lives are forever destroyed, being part of their lives, but not in any meaningful kind of way.

Ah, correction for the typographically burdened moi: I meant to address that comment to RedCarolina. D'oi.

The Nam taught me to internalize all those feeling of shock with the horror of doomed souls and Iconic images. 40 years of working professionally as a photojournalist hardened those protections allowing the job to get done.
However in all the photos made I never shoved a camera into the face of someone in pain, to suck the emotions out for the pleasure of the reader. There are ways to capture the moment with out being a vampire.
Today's 'journalists' need to have some horror visited upon them, a taste of empathic pain to teach them that people aren't the story, but the losses and joys behind the story are to be treasured and protected. That is what makes for good journalism.

Jewel, for a moment, I thought you had my number.
Posted by: Casca at September 12, 2011 5:18 PM
Jewel, I am flattered by your error! Furthermore, I was, am and will forever be the typo queen. I am only here to confirm that all of you are intellectually superior. Haha. The court jester...
