Krugman Does the Impossible...

Paul Krugman, perhaps the best economist for the left, caused Bill O'Reilly to go speechless last night. At one point, in a discussion moderated by Tim Russert, Krugman called O'Reilly's absurd logic "lies." For a few seconds there was silence until O'Reilly realized what had happened - he had been called the liar that he is. Then he exploded with a torrent of personal attacks on Krugman. O'Reilly continued in an attempt to convince Krugman that Mr. Bush was in fact a very smart person.

Maybe you feel that way Mr. O'Reilly because you are Mr. Bush's intellectual counterpart.
