Paul Krugman Illustrates The Damaged Political Psyches Of The Left

I have to admit, I was surprised to read this particular rant by Paul Krugman, the Nobel-winning economist and columnist for the New York Times (he won the Nobel for his work on economics, not his writing). Having read a New York Magazine piece that theorizes that some state election machines may have been “hacked,” thereby costing Clinton the election, Krugman declared:

[N]ow that it’s out there, I’d say that an independent investigation is called for…Without an investigation, the suspicion of a hacked election will never go away.

Really: “never?” Well. Krugman quickly backed off after Nate Cohn challenged this thesis (so much for “never”), but a number of hours later he shared a Vox piece: “The election probably wasn’t hacked. But Clinton should request recounts just in case.” Just in case!

It might be fair to say that Trump’s election kind of broke the brains of many people both left, right and center: nobody expected it and a great many people really didn’t want it to happen. But the Left seems to be taking it the hardest, and this is perfectly exemplified by Paul Krugman, a genuinely brilliant fellow who has started to sound like a tinfoil-hat-wearing neighborhood crank. – READ MORE

    “They” should investigate the 2010 re-election of Harry Reid in Las Vegas–a fraudulent election if there ever was one! He never led in ONE POLL for over a year before the election. In fact; the last poll taken on Sunday showed him behind Susan Angle by 2 pts. He won by 7, just so she wouldn’t get to have an automatic recount! She knew she was had, but couldn’t afford a recount. The gambling syndicates knew they had a friend in Reid and less than a month later he tried to push thru an “On-Line” gambling scheme for casino owners. It failed.
    But let’s give Richard Nixon the 1960 Presidential Election posthumously, since the gutter mobsters, led by Mayor William Daley of Chicago who was one of the culprits that stole it from Nixon and gave it to philanderer, JFK, were really responsible for Kennedy’s election. There were “problems” in “gangster’ New Jersey, Texas, and Florida. Texas, a rebel State, was a democrat stronghold at that time.
    Personally, I would LOVE to see a recount in this election: it would INDISPUTABLY PROVE, BIGLY, just how corrupt the democrats are. (LBJ stole his first successful election to Congress in 1936, also)

    Paul Ryan Wisconsin election rigged. If voting integrity returns to Wisconsin, rat face Ryan will never be re-elected.
