Paul Krugman calls the anniversary for 9/11 “an occasion for shame” because the president and mayor of New York City at the time were Republicans, and did what people expected them to do. Not only is Paul Krugman deranged, he’s also a coward for not allowing anyone to leave a comment about his angry little rant.
What happened after 9/11 — and I think even people on the right know this, whether they admit it or not — was deeply shameful. Te atrocity should have been a unifying event, but instead it became a wedge issue. Fake heroes like Bernie Kerik, Rudy Giuliani, and, yes, George W. Bush raced to cash in on the horror. And then the attack was used to justify an unrelated war the neocons wanted to fight, for all the wrong reasons.
A lot of other people behaved badly. How many of our professional pundits — people who should have understood very well what was happening — took the easy way out, turning a blind eye to the corruption and lending their support to the hijacking of the atrocity?
He went on to say he was not allowing comments “for obvious reasons.”

Update: Funny, isn’t it, how Krugman didn’t seem to have a problem with the “jubilant Palestinians” who celebrated the attacks of September 11, and who would love nothing more than a replay.
Update 2: Another deranged progressive commemorates 9/11 by reviving calls for war crimes charges against officials in the Bush administration.
