Classless and gutless

Who has decided to politicize the day of remembrance that 9/11 has become?  Why none other than the crass and classless Paul Krugman, of course:

What happened after 9/11 — and I think even people on the right know this, whether they admit it or not — was deeply shameful. Te [sic] atrocity should have been a unifying event, but instead it became a wedge issue. Fake heroes like Bernie Kerik, Rudy Giuliani, and, yes, George W. Bush raced to cash in on the horror. And then the attack was used to justify an unrelated war the neocons wanted to fight, for all the wrong reasons.

Rewriting history so he can attack political strawmen on a day the rest of America has put aside its politics to remember the victims of that day. 

What a piece of garbage.

Oh, and gutless too:

I’m not going to allow comments on this post, for obvious reasons.

Yup, pretty obvious.
