In case you were still wondering just how deeply confused Paul Krugman, Nobel laureate, New York Times Op-Ed columnist and guardian of all that’s decent, especially really high taxes, really is…

“So if you see me quoted as saying something really stupid or outrageous, and it didn’t come from the Times or some other verifiable site, you should probably assume it was a fake.”

Krugman was responding to a quotation attributed to him that was widely circulated but not authentic.   We sympathize with his concern, but gee…maybe he should have thought twice about that particular piece of advice.
