"rural, white American" must be code...but for what?

Paul Krugman, the perpetually wrong economist in New York, identifies Senator Ted Cruz as the arch-type "rural, white American" who can "do a lot of damage" to the inevitable future.

Ted Cruz who was not born in the United States.

Ted Cruz who grew up in the Houston metropolitan area (Population 6.5 million documented residents)

Ted Cruz who graduated from Princeton and Harvard.

Ted Cruz, first Hispanic from Texas to serve in the Senate

Ted Cruz who represents the great State of Texas, home to more illegal aliens than any state other than California.

That Ted Cruz?

So by comparison, who does Krugman consider an informed, urban sophisticate? A former bartender, perhaps.


  1. Krugman has never been one to let facts get in the way of what he thinks is right. He is living in another world from the 99%.

  2. Krugman is ill informed AS USUAL...

  3. How can you damage something that is inevitable?

  4. Shhh. Don't ask questions. Thinking is not encouraged. Just nod.
