    By kyle | May 27, 2012

    In my Sunday column, I take 2000 words to explain exactly why Paul Krugman is such a jackass.

      I find Krugman hilarious. You can see where he is coming from before he even does, whether it is the symbolism of Ronald Reagan declaring his candidacy in Mississippi, or getting to base ulterior motives of Republican policy. He is indeed the definition of a hack, one that leaves arguments with big enough holes to drive all his proposed debt into. I read his book “Conscience of a Liberal” and it reminded me of a college football team blog.
