Krugman's haikus

Most blogs that have a partial RSS feed don't stay in my RSS folder. Paul Krugman's is the exception, for reasons that this afternoon's almost dadaist offerings illustrate:

Nate Silver's is the only partial RSS feed whose blog I regularly read, because, well, he's awesome. Others I'll just skim for an interesting title.

Kthug is the only non-fullfeed blog I subscribe to. The good news is that there's a new Chrome extension to make (most) blogs full feed. You hit the Z key and it loads the full post right there in Google Reader:

Apparently, honesty and competence aren't factors in who you subscription decisions, eh, Klein?

There's a whole cottage industry on the web debunking Krugman. He's a laughingstock among people who can reason, think, and research on their own.

It's really quite amazing, not only to see Krugman continue year after year, but to see his flock, likewise, following along so faithfully.

In a word, it's crazy.

JournoList and DNC shill Ezra Klein is still on the WaPo's payroll.

I'm guessing this has something to do with Howie Kurtz's decision to jump ship. His vast years experience and impressive skills at spinning away the WaPo's lefty bias are rendered impotent in the face of having to defend a newspaper that employs Klein.

At this rate it won't be long before the WaPo sells for a buck to some dupe, as Newsweek just did.

Maybe you can get Krugman to explain that to you, Ezra.

The thing that is so infuriating about Krugman is that he is right so often. He indicated there was a housing bubble. He said the "stimulus" was too small. He indicated that Greece and Ireland are taking the wrong steps to recovery. Samuelson's article today shows the prices they are paying. I know I though he was wrong on those issues, but he was right.

I'm trying to make a 538 one as well. Partial RSS feeds are infuriating.
