From Krugman's op-ed in the New York Times on the 17th…
"A message to progressives: By all means, hang Senator Joe Lieberman…"
You know, I was thinking the exact same thing. What we need is a long length of tightly woven–
Um, yeah. That's what I meant. In effigy. Of course, I meant in effigy. What do you think I am, some sort of crazy reactionary? I mean, you'd have to be an idiot to think that Krugman was actually advocating stringing up and killing a sitting U.S. senator.
I mean, nobody actually thought that, right?
Management wants me to make it clear that in my last column I wasn't endorsing inappropriate threats against Mr. Lieberman.
Well, the people who work for New York Times, obviously. I meant nobody wasn't demonstrably idiotic.
