“Have you been living in the same country I’m in these past five years?” Krugman retorted, saying the deficit is far down on his list of things to worry about.
In response, Mika gasped and said, “I feel like we’re talking about climate change! My God!” (What a dope.) Krugman said that was a destructive comparison, and explained why. But I doubt she listened.*
I especially liked it when he responded to Joe Scarborough: “How many times do people like these have to be wrong and people like me have to be right?”
