Paul Krugman Has No Shame

He goes after Simone Ledeen and Michael Fleischer, daughter of Michael and brother of Ari, respectively, today for having served in what sound (from his use of them) like cushy Coalition Provisional Authority jobs in Baghdad. Sure–putting your life on the line, sleeping in a trailer, to help build a democracy for seven months is very cushy. A political favor is a tony, comfortable job at the Commerce Department–not a war-zone deployment. He accuses the former CPA “occupiers” of being “oblivious to reality.” Sounds like an accurate description of Mr. Krugman.
