Pulling Up Powerline Quotes
So this 2005 Powerline quote on Krugman is making the rounds:
It must be depressing to be Paul Krugman. No matter how well the economy performs, Krugmanís bitter vendetta against the Bush administration requires him to hunt for the black lining in a sky full of silvery clouds. With the economy now booming, what can Krugman possibly have to complain about? In todayís column, titled That Hissing Sound, Krugman says there is a housing bubble, and itís about to burst. . .
I use John Cole's cite because he has the decency to add "[c]onsidering my recent past (at least up until mid 2005), I am not really in a position to get all high and mighty . . ." Indeed. Now, I guess it is bad form to talk about Andrew Sullivan's joining up with Donald Luskin in their anti-Krugman crusade for so many years. It seems to me Andrew would be well served to acknowledge his errors and disavow Luskin, once and for all. He could cite this rant from Luskin on Krugman's Nobel prize:
