Paul Krugman's vitriol: Don Luskin slams New York Times columnist Paul Krugman for his tireless work in making one of his own predictions come true. Krugman's Tuesday column was one big whine about this election being the nastiest on record. Left out is that Krugman has done his best over the past four years to drag political speech into the gutter.
Luskin cites instance after instance of Krugman's own intemperate punditry.
I'd like to remind you of one more. During the debate between Bill O'Reilly and Krugman on Tim Russert's CNBC show earlier this month, O'Reilly called Krugman a "quasi-socialist."
Krugman's response was to call O'Reilly a "quasi-murderer."
People, glass houses, stones -- look it up Krugman.
