Krugman, If the meme does not fit….
You MUST quit!!!
What a maroon!
Can we say fuck here? Cuz he’s a fuckin’ maroon.
He makes an attempt at finding the truth, but does not change his opinion was the truth is revealed. That was his mistake, not the question.
Maroon has severe case of HUA (head up ass) and it can only be rectified by pulling it all the way through. mpw
Ah, drink in the frothy sweet taste of schadenfruede.
What a stupid rat-faced dweeb Paul Krugman is.
What is it that lawyers say? Never ask a question to which you don’t already know the answer.
That’s the thing. He thought that, merely by virtue of being Teh Krugman®, he did already know the answer.
Turns out Teh Krugman®’s superpower is not always knowing the answer. Who knew?
Curiously, you fail to cite the source for this video, and fail to offer any way to find the rest of it…
Curiously, your fake paranoia is completely warranted. This video is actually of an audioanimatronic Paul Krugman I’ve been building in my basement, with money and parts supplied by Karl Rove.
Oh, and my neighbor did the background voices and I think he voted McCain.
Curiously, it’s possible to trace Youtube videos back to the person who posted them there, and then, oh I dunno, ask them where they got it.
Thank you for your replies.
I’m still waiting for URL for the transcript, or even just a larger section of the video, “9/16/2008 debate on healthcare at Rockefeller Plaza in NYC” …
It’s easy to use URLs:
(in the hope that someone here might like facts & context)
(for Bill Maher)
Yes, I did use the YouTube “Send Message” to who posted the video.
Not holding my breath for that either.
Does anyone to the right of Helen Thomas even try to get the whole story about anything?
Alternately, if you just wanted to post an irrelevant flub… well done!
What plausible “context” could possibly change the really very quite visible fact of Krugman asking for (and clearly expecting) one thing, then getting another, then admitting it?
Oh, but bonus Audacity Points for the Helen Thomas reference.
Hope and change and unintentional comedy!
Thanks; replies always appreciated.
“What plausible “context” could possibly change the really very quite visible fact of Krugman asking for (and clearly expecting) one thing, then getting another, then admitting it?”
You appear to admit that you just wanted to post an irrelevant (and fun) flub, & yes, well done.
Context, for anyone interested in national policy, would be a full review of the healthcare issue, as might have occurred in the full video, or at:
among any number of other URLs.
Stephen, looks like you’ve uncovered a member of the opposition who first insists upon complaining about sourcing, then context.
Basically Janus doesn’t like anyone dissing one of his heroes. The link to a self-serving lobbying group in favor of a single-payer program tells me all I need to know.
While I’ll give Krugman points for his recovery during an “oops” moment, the real comedy lies in the fact that the Great And Powerful Oz (er) Nobel Prize-winning Economics Genius falls flat on his face when expecting vociferous vocal support for the Canadian system.
Here in fly-over, “bitter clinger” country we call that cognitive dissonance.
Urk. Above I should have typed “who first insists upon complaining about sourcing, then context, for lack of a better response.”
Still no source for the video, hence no context.
Sorry not to make that more clear earlier.
Not that anyone else looked for source…
I’m now giving serious thought to editing all of Janus’s comments on this thread, so that his name appear as Sgt.. Schultz.
Hey, lay off Sarge; he was a good guy, once you hooked him up with some chocolate…
