For the Krugmananas out there who reference his Nobel Prize - there's more to journalism than just some lefty award:
...Many of those “substantive assaults” came from us. Here is a partial selection:
In Krugman Goes Around the Bend, I pointed out the absurdity of Krugman’s equating a group of country music fans destroying their own copies of Dixie Chicks CDs to Kristallnacht.
In The Paul Krugman Truth Squad, Paul linked to a post by Donald Luskin that showed that Krugman had dishonestly attacked the Bush tax cuts by comparing a single year’s salary in a newly-created job against the ten-year cost of the tax cuts that created that job.
In Krugman the Barbarian, I critiqued Krugman’s attack on Arnold Schwarzenegger, in which Krugman asserted that California’s taxes are “now probably below average.” Probably? He evidently was too lazy to look up the data–laziness is a frequent issue with Krugman–which showed that Californians then had the 8th-highest tax burden of the 50 states.
In Poor Paul Krugman, I noted that, contrary to Krugman’s characterization of Wesley Clark’s views–Clark was Krugman’s candidate of the moment–Clark had testified under oath that Saddam Hussein “has chemical and biological weapons.”
In Krugman On Civility, I ridiculed Krugman’s claim that the invasion of Iraq in March 2003 caused Osama bin Laden’s escape at Tora Bora in December 2001.
In Krugman Descends Further, I noted that, while Krugman had repeatedly criticized Republicans for being “uncivil,” the U.K. cover his book The Great Unraveling depicted President Bush as Frankenstein’s monster, and Dick Cheney as Hitler. (Some things never change, do they?)
In Paul Krugman’s Credibility Recession, I showed that Krugman’s claims about current unemployment data were false. This was another case of Krugman making blithe (but fictitious) assertions about the unemployment numbers, assuming that no one would take the trouble to look them up.
In That Was Then, This Is Now, I pointed out that Krugman had written disapprovingly about Enron without disclosing that he was a paid Enron adviser who, when he was cashing Enron’s checks, did nothing about the supposed abuses that were the subject of his column.
In Ducks In A Barrel, we linked to a Donald Luskin column that showed how Krugman had misrepresented economic data to mislead his readers with respect to the Reagan administration’s record on taxes and the economy.
In Paul Krugman, Around the Bend, I called Krugman on his false statements about Florida’s Governor Jeb Bush.
In Krugmania, I pointed out that Krugman’s hysterical claim that President Bush stole the 2004 election in Ohio was based on false statements of fact that were easily demolished–if, that is, one actually does research instead of parroting goofy left-wing blogs, as Krugman so often does.
In Krugmania, Continued, I demonstrated that Krugman lied–once again, uncritically repeating a baseless claim on a left-wing blog–with respect to the Navy’s performance in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina.
In Deja Vu, I exposed another example of Krugman’s misleading characterization of economic data to draw a conclusion that was the opposite of the truth.
In Krugman Flails Wildly, Misses, I cataloged falsehoods in a Krugman column about Social Security.
In Krugman vs. Krugman, I pointed out that Krugman denounced, in his column, the idea that extending unemployment benefits can prolong unemployment as a “bizarre point of view,” while in fact his own textbook, Macroeconomics, makes precisely that point.
In Krugman Embarrasses Himself, Again, I criticized Krugman for fabricating a quote that he attributed to Newt Gingrich, which led to a red-faced correction in the Times.
In Sun Rises in East; Krugman Makes Fool of Himself, I ridiculed Krugman’s criticism of Republicans for using “eliminationist rhetoric,” i.e.–I’m not kidding!–”Fire Nancy Pelosi,” when Krugman himself wrote, to take just one of many examples: “A message to progressives: By all means, hang Senator Joe Lieberman in effigy.”
In Paul Krugman, Buffoon, I criticized Krugman for blaming Michele Bachmann for Jared Loughner’s murders, based on a false account of what Michele said in an interview with me.
In Paul Krugman, Punch Line, we posted a video of a room full of people bursting out in laughter when they learn that Krugman is the source for a liberal’s crackpot claim.
In Iowahawk vs. Krugman, we linked to Iowahawk’s dissection of yet another attempt by Krugman to lie with statistics, this time on education.
In Liberals: Wrong Again, Do They Care? I ripped Krugman’s baseless claim, which turned out to be entirely false, that Koch Industries stood to benefit from the sale of a handful of small, antiquated power plants in Wisconsin. This was one of countless examples of where Krugman repeated outlandish claims made on far-left web sites as though they were Gospel, without doing any investigation to determine whether they had merit, or, as in this case, were obvious fantasies...
I wonder if over spending on Super Pacs is causing some of these corporations to re-think their spending priorities. Such as, xenophobic and hate mongering right wing radio shows aren't quite the target audience they used to be. Who knows?
I'm sure that Rush, Hannity, et al are really worried about your moonbat fantasies.
But the money, or do you think they would wing nuts for free?
Krugman's response to SATerp, as it were.
Oh and, language fails are much more forgivable than logic fails. I won't edit the original because anyone who can read with comprehension knows what I was writing, try again it will come to you.
As FDR said, I welcome their hatred.
When I think about brave patriots, Dick Cheney springs to my mind like first or second these days. So I am kind of disappointed, no, REALLY DISAPPOINTED, that a few Canadian bacon eating yahoos would frighten him away from going and kicking some real ass in the 51st State. Dunno, I might have to re-evaluate my hero worship of the man.
Former Vice President Dick Cheney wants to avoid the violent demonstrations that marred his visit to Canada in September. He was holed up for hours while protestors clashed with police in riot gear.
I noticed the immigration folks didn't show up.
The hero of our thread and he does not get recognition when recognition is due. For shame, it almost makes me think that you all have gone over to work in Eric Holder's Justice Department when I see how ignored Rep. Issa has become in this thread. The man is truly a LEGEND FOR OUR TIMES.
WASHINGTON -- The powerful chair of the House Oversight Committee has launched
And then there is Reagan.

For such a time as this.
A lefty supporting the brainwashing of America's youth, WOW, picture THAT.
Dirty tricks by the Democrats? If so, color me shocked.
Pat Brady, Republican party chairman in Illinois, issued a statement to MailOnline demanding a state investigation into the calls.
Since when, by your reckoning, did robocalls become "dirty tricks?"
If, as the party chairman alleges, they're "illegal," I should think that constitute "dirty tricks."
That is some rich ironing.

It's not enough to go after combustible fuels...now we're dismantling hydroelectric dams.
Oh, and we're doing it on the basis of falsified "science"....
A former science adviser to the Department of the Interior’s Bureau of Reclamation was fired in February, shortly after he alleged that the Obama administration intentionally falsified scientific fact in a proposal for dam removal in the Klamath River.
Professor Paul Houser of George Mason University, in an allegation to the Office of the Executive Secretariat and Regulatory Affairs in the Department of the Interior, said that Sec. Ken Salazar’s determination to remove the dams resulted in “intentional biased (falsification) reporting of scientific results.”
He also alleged that when he voiced his concern about the scientific integrity of the press release involving the dam removal in September, very few of his concerns were taken into consideration.
Houser was later terminated from his government job.
Former Interior Dept.: Administration's report on dam removal 'intentionally biased' | Official claims Klamath River Basin dam removal proposal did not tell the whole truth
That's why that rachel maddow ad where she touts the benefits of big government projects with the hoover dam in the background cracks me up. That project would be killed immediately by todays democrats, either through caving to environmentalists or through the union labor it would require making the costs prohibitive
Who was the person killed so Cheney could have their heart. I'd have thought MSNBC would have had a story by now!
Everytime I look at a picture of Cheney, I swear it morphs into the Devil!
Losing your touch there a bit. I took until the second sentence to rail on Unions.
