An exception has to be made for one Paul Krugman, who seems, earlier life, to have been a decent and civilized person. Since he began writing a column for the New York Times, however, Krugman has experienced a veritable descent into madness, principally due to Bush Derangement Syndrome. Today, Krugman decided to proudly expose his neurosis for the entire world to see in an execrable rant on his Times blog. His post is preserved in full below:Read more:

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 [sic] 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.

That means Krugman woke up on the tenth anniversary of the largest attack on this nation’s homeland and decided to make an attack on three men forever linked to that moment, simply because he doesn’t like them. Imagine if a New York Times columnist had done that during World War II on Pearl Harbor Day. Absolutely sickening.
Of course, one ought not be surprised to see such contemptible rhetoric from Krugman given his history of making numerous preposterous and hateful statements. Read more: http://newsbusters.org/blogs/matthew-sheffield/2011/09/11/paul-krugman-sociopath#ixzz1Xip8yv12
