In One Smear, Out The Other

Paul Krugman is feeling the heat, and rightfully so. In his New York Times column today he responds to accusations (in large part coming from NRO’s Don Luskin) that he is not only tolerant of anti-Semitism, but has been complicit in the anti-Semitism of Malaysian prime-minister Mahathir Mohamad. Krugman recently smeared NRO’s Luskin, calling him a stalker on Fox’s Hannity & Colmes. Now, after his indefensible history with Mahathir has been exposed, he says that he’s the one who is being smeared. Luskin is no stalker. So Krugman’s smear stands. Is Krugman complicit in a despot’s anti-Semitism? You decide.
