That sound you're hearing is the sound of wingnut heads exploding at the news of Paul Krugman's Nobel Prize in Economics. Here is real live wingnut "thinking" in action:
- Obama is a Marxist/Socialist
- The Nobel committee gives its prizes to Marxist/Socialists like Al Gore
- So it's no surprise that they gave a prize to a Marxist/Socialsit like Paul Krugman.
"Krugman" and "Socialist" in the same message... bwahahaha! The man made his bones touting free trade and conservative government. Indeed, his biggest beef with the Busheviks has been their budget deficits within good economic times, which had the effect of pouring gasoline onto the fire of the housing bubble.
Calling a centrist Democrat whose web site is full of free market solutions to various problems a "Socialist/Marxist": Priceless. What next, a Wingnut conspiracy theory that tells me that Obama is a tentacle monster from the planet Arcturus come to earth to peform tentacle rape upon all our nubile young virgins, and his external visage is just a mask he's wearing?
I await my multi-tentacled alien overlord. Heh.
