Note to Self: Bring Up These Posts When Krugman’s Fans (or the Man Himself) Explain the Refusal to Debate
If you are bored, go read Krugman’s fans’ complaints about the unethical libertarians, who had the audacity to tell their friends to vote for a question they wanted him to answer. I mean, it’s kind of like those dirty Ron Paul fans, who will vote in online polls and honestly report who their favorite candidate is. The nerve.
Anyway, this is mostly a note to myself for future reference: I imagine at some point I will find it very useful that Paul Krugman in two separate posts (here and here) admitted that he agreed to debate Ron Paul in order to sell books. He has totally painted himself into a corner.
(I imagine some readers are thinking, “Yeah sure Bob, like Krugman will ever ‘rue the day’ on this one. Get over yourself.” Good. I’m glad you think that. It will make it that much easier for me to take the world by storm.)
