NY Times columnist Paul Krugman continues to “jump the shark”, a term used for a TV show that begins a decline in quality that is beyond recovery. It fits Krugman well since he has long been nothing more than a fantasy show for far-left liberals, and he is certainly beyond recovery. His entire output is now geared to swimming upstream for the sole purpose of being noticed and, unfortunately, quoted.
In Krugman’s NY Times’ 9/11 column where he pathetically blocked comments, he complained that 9/11 should have been a unifying event rather than the wedge issue it has become. Ironically, Krugman has been one of the biggest, partisan wedges for a long time and he is now further “wedging” himself into total insanity. His definition of “unity” is everyone following his twisted reasoning which he pretends is held by many.
Krugman labels George Bush, former NY city mayor Rudy Giuliani, and former NY city police commissioner Bernie Kerik “fake heroes” who rushed in to “cash in” on the horror of 9/11. In his kooky world, all three should have sat home so Krugman could write columns complaining about their inaction. Krugman has Bush Derangement Syndrome, so he could never say something good about Bush, but Giuliani has been overwhelming lauded for handling himself well during the crisis and keeping the entire city from going into a panic. Krugman is strangely offended by that, so he cuts him down.
Krugman has a psychological need to be different. He separates himself from others by taking the wrong side of sanity and pontificating as if it makes sense. It doesn’t, and it hasn’t for quite some time. He is not a genius talking down to the masses. He is a self-righteous, self-absorbed contrarian embracing insanity as his personal philosophy and path to fame.
Krugman says: “The memory of 9/11 has been irrevocably poisoned; it has become an occasion for shame.” The only poisoning of the memory is in his column, and the shame is that the NY Times continues to print his rot on a regular basis. Krugman has jumped the shark and needs to be cancelled before the new season begins.
