Paul Krugman

Krugman and Fish Wrapper Ignore Realities Of Global Warming Debate

Paul Krugman of the New York Times is usually so far off the deep end that it's not worth wasting breath on him. However, his column (originally published as a pay-per-view column on the Times site on 2/23) on global warming and California gives a good example of a method liberals use to attempt to stifle any attempt to disagree with them.

The article is about California, and how several policies that it has in place has caused a decrease in per capita energy consumption. Knowing Krugman and how he tends to twist facts to suit his point of view, I'm sure there are a number of factual errors in the piece, but I haven't had time to research them yet.

When (Democrat) Votes Disappear

Even though the Democrats won a majority of the elections this month and gained control of both houses of Congress, they still have to whine about voting irregularities that supposedly cost them races that they "should have" won. Front and center in this whining is Paul Krugman of that bastion of fair reporting, the New York Times.

His complaint in yesterday's pay-per-view column (published today in the Fish Wrapper)is about the race for Florida's 13th congressional district. It had previously been held by Katherine Harris, who had been Florida's Secretary of State during the 2000 elections (and who, according to Krugman, "infamously acted as a partisan Republican rather than a fair referee"). Harris chose to run for the Senate instead of the House this time, so the race was between Republican Vern Buchanan and Democrat Christine Jennings. Buchanan was certified the winner by 369 votes, and so, in true Democratic fashion, Jennings sued, asking the judge to overturn the victory, alleging there was a "pervasive malfunctioning" of touch-screen voting machines in the Nov. 7 election.
