Paul Krugman posits himself as the conscience of a liberal at the New York Times.If he speaks for liberals, liberals are truly disgusting. I assume and believe that most liberals reject this and hope many of them will be vocal about the disagreement. And the New York Times might want to rethink using Krugman’s conscience as that of a typical liberal.Today he remembers September 11, 2001.He remembers 9/11 this way:
Fake heroes like Bernie Kerik, Rudy Giuliani, and, yes, George W. Bush raced to cash in on the horror.
He also believes, “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 suspect Krugman and his ilk behave this way because they wake up on days like this and realize they are decisively in the minority in this country.But I also suspect the editors at the New York Times agree with Krugman and are cool with this.
