Once Again.....

Paul Krugman pisses me off.

Yah, yah, yah, what a surprise.

What really gets under my skin about him is that he is soooo invested in continually drinking the "progressive KoolAid" that he's become a myopic parody of an actual newsman. He seems to literally refuse to see the hypocrisy in many of his articles, and is lauded for his views as well. Even a blind squirrel can supposedly find a nut once in a while, why can't Mr. Krugman? I guess he's got too much of his vision obstructed by his anal canal, as it were.

So what did he say this time, Jeffro, that pissed you off?

Glad you asked:

Rosie Ruiz Republicans

Remember Rosie Ruiz? In 1980 she was the first woman to cross the finish line at the Boston Marathon — except it turned out that she hadn’t actually run most of the race, that she sneaked onto the course around a mile from the end. Ever since, she has symbolized a particular kind of fraud, in which people claim credit for achieving things they have not, in fact, achieved.
And these days Paul Ryan is the Rosie Ruiz of American politics.

Maybe Paul Ryan is a lying liar, particularly when it comes to his accomplishments in a marathon. Perhaps this is a big character flaw:
What makes this incident so striking is, instead, the way it resonates with the essential Rosie-Ruizness of Mr. Ryan’s whole political persona, which is built around big boasts about accomplishments he hasn’t accomplished.
Maybe he's right. Maybe this is a clue about Ryan. I say it's a common denominator with  just about all politicians.

Perhaps we could be better served by tallying the severity and destructiveness of the lies, Mr. Krugman. Perhaps you might notice Your Dear Leader's lies about, oh, say, the effectiveness of his funding towards alternate energy? Does Soylandra, which is only the tip of the iceberg, ring a bell? Or perhaps the ever increasing unemployment rate, which according to the White House is decreasing alla time, or just about to. Or howza 'bout that annoying fact that more Americans are on food stamps than any time in history? If the economy was so damned healthy and everyone employed, whyinhell would the recipients need them? And let us not forget that Dear Leader excoriated Bush about how the jobs created under his administration were McDonalds jobs - not jobs with the pay necessary to support a family. Mkay, so what happens when  Mickey D's hires extra for the summer? The Big O takes credit, of course, for his policies being responsible for any jobs that do show up.

I could easily go on. I think I've proven my point. I'm not even going to go into all the lies and misinformation that both campaigns are spreading. When called on it, both fall back on the excuse that it was out of their control, because it was some SuperPac that funded the offensive ad. Yeah, they're really all about bucking your authority, that's why they spend all that money to support you. I'll take a share in that bridge you're selling, too.

Getting back to Krugman - Man! Get out of your tower there in NYC and just look around! Open your eyes! Remove your rectal cranial inversion, man!

I'll be holding my breath and flapping my arms so I can fly to the moon, too.

Somehow the results of a marathon seem to pale in importance next to say...the economy, the EPA, handing weapons to criminals....I could go on and on.

Substitute Obama's name for Ryan's in his opening salvo.

The KoolAid is strong in this one.

I object to the derisive mention of NYC in your last paragraph!
otherwise - yeah, on the money.

I am surprised anybody, let alone you, reads Krugman. Or NYTimes, for that matter. Oh maybe it's just me...I have too many personal worries tro pay attention to anything this fanatic says.
