Krugman smackdown

A couple weeks back, John Hawkins polled conservative bloggers for their favorite columnists and I almost listed the NY Times’ Paul Krugman (as a joke!) if only for the volume in electrons he generates to correct and condemn his tendentious articles. He's the columnist that launched a thousand fisks.

Now that the Times’ public editor Daniel Okrent has resigned, leaving behind a trail of Krugmanic criticism, everyone’s ganging up on the Princeton economist. Naturally, Don Luskin is leading the way with the “Jayson Awards” for most outrageous Krugmanisms. (And more from the Man without Qualities).

P.S. – John Hawkins has started a meta-blog called “Conservative Grapevine” that looks very promising. Check it out.
