Is there a Nobel Prize for stupid?

If not, there ought to be; then Paul Krugman would have two: "Nobel Prize-winning economist and New York Times contributor Paul Krugman has an interesting idea for what should become a national icon if America can 'survive' the presidency of Donald Trump: 'pink pussy hats.'

Because nothing says land of the free and home of the brave like pink pussy hats. Go ahead, Paul; but, in your case, this really does seem like an extreme case of gilding the lily.

Since there is a Nobel for non-achievement, which was, of course, given to Obama, then one for stupidity makes sense. Krugman will be one in a already packed group of contenders.

Note: that should always be "Former Enron Adviser Paul Krugman".

BTW, I hope your Christmas was merry!

p.s. gawdammed capcha - 27 screens! Are you effin' kidding me???

I'd like to see Krugman wearing a pussy hat, on TV, explaining how the U.S. economy has tanked in the last year.

With a split screen shot of the Nobel selection committee's faces, as they realize what the hell they did.

Yeah well, pussy-whipped? Since he married this one:
commentators noticed that he 'discovered politics' (and began 'thinking with his d*ck').

Shows Krugman's character compared to say Norman Mailer.
