Krugman is back
Posted by: Jon Henke on Wednesday, September 26, 2007

I don't have the time I'd like to respond to Paul Krugman like I did in the past. Fortunately, Tom Maguire is quite adept at handling stuff like this from Krugman's new blog...
Paul Krugman: There’s also the difference that Bush owns this war in a way the right never had sole ownership of Vietnam. So it may be harder to create a stab-in-the-back legend this time. On the other hand, we should bear in mind that many people believe things about Vietnam that never happened, like demonstrators spitting on returning soldiers.
Maguire points out that "there are contemporaneous news accounts of vets being spat upon in airports".

Paul Krugman has neither apologized, nor corrected the record.

The record among Democrats during the vote to authorize would make it hard to believe authorization would not have happened even if Congress was 100% Democrat.

But I have to also wonder if the Democrats really want to divorce themselves from the Iraq War absolutely. The Surge is doing well. If other things may fall into place, that could leave Republicans with a victory they own 100%.

In hindsight, I am thankful for the TimesSelect wall.

Their sanctimonious bloviators were easier to ignore when they were relegated to dead trees.

Funny. My dad clearly recalls punching a guy who spit on him...

Maybe he imagined it.

Anti-war propagandists aren’t very willing to admit this kind of thing. Honesty doesn’t seem important to them.

Krugman is so full of crap I’m surprised the EPA hasn’t cordoned him off and marked him as a superfund location.

If the Times had any sense, they’d come out with Times Protect. I’d pay $50 a year to never be exposed to Krugman, et al in any fashion whatsoever.

He’ll have to pay me to read his rants.

Gee! Recognition! Hah! fame, fortune, talk show appearances, possibly even being allowed to play Halo-3 with my sons without being told to come and help clean up the dishes!
woo-hoo!

Frankly I figured someone would have already thought of it, does the EPA even do superfund anymore? Those were the days, when the air and water were ’less’ polluted and Love Canal was catching fire.

Yeah, go ahead, steal away!

I always say the poor guy’s starving to death - he’s too full of crap to eat!

Now, Random, that’s brilliant!

Scott - I’d have to get with the boys to tell you that - you see, the poor old guy normally gets his @ss handed to him when he gets on-line because he has this thing about getting killed in the game. So, playing on-line is something I do sparingly. I hate the re-spawn aspect, so few punishments for thinking the best way to take every hill is:
Frontal Assault, followed by
Frontal Assault, followed by
Frontal Assault.

They beat it last night, now I’d like to go through it and actually, "smell the roses" by looking around at the awesome graphics and environments the creators sweated over for 2+ years to create instead of a pumped up environment that sounds like -

"There’s something...I got it!....come on....
Dad! Where are you? Why are you way back there?
Damn.....I just got killed by a brute....he’s over on the left with a brute gun.
There’s a turret here, >expletive<, it got me.
Who the hell just threw that grenade? Well, you killed ME too @sshat!
Where are we?"

Bear in mind, they’re all over 18, so I’ve given up policing the speech as long as the wife isn’t in ear shot. And there’s three of em....so you might be a good fourth, if you don’t end up feeling like fragging the youngest on a regular basis (I used to grenade spam him as he came to dance over my corpse....)

But once I find out the id(s) I’ll let you know - they live for on-line play and I’m into co-op provided you’re a little more cautious about casualties than they sometimes are.
I don’t know if they had it on heroic or legendary, I just know there was a whole lot of dying going on and the shields seemed to be good for about 1 shot.

Also a good line, but somewhat anticlamactic, unfortunately. Timing is everything.

" And he never said anything about crediting you. He’s just stealing it. :)"

That’s the biz, sweetheart.
