Paul Krugman, the sometime economist and full-time elitist commentator on all things political posted this on his blog regarding the anniversary of the 9/11 attacks.
"Is it just me, or are the 9/11 commemorations oddly subdued?
Actually, I don’t think it’s me, and it’s not really that odd.
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 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.
A lot of other people behaved badly. How many of our professional pundits — people who should have understood very well what was happening — took the easy way out, turning a blind eye to the corruption and lending their support to the hijacking of the atrocity?
The memory of 9/11 has been irrevocably poisoned; it has become an occasion for shame. And in its heart, the nation knows it.
I’m not going to allow comments on this post, for obvious reasons."
All Mr. Quarter can say is what a f__king coward you are Mr. Krugman. Hiding there behind your keyboard and unwilling to even face the tongue lashing that your readers would administer for such a despicable and cowardly editorial. Shame on you!
Update 09/12/11: Apparently Mr. Quarter was not the only one offended by Paul Krugman's diarrhea of the keyboard. Yesterday, Donald Rumsfeld, former Secretary of Defense under GWB tweeted that he was cancelling his subscription to the New York Times because of Krugman's comments.
