The always wrong right wingnuts

Via Atrios, this Krugman post is the most amusing read of the day.
Calculated Risk, in a discussion of home price declines, links to my three-year-old analysis, That Hissing Sound, which I think was one of the best pure-economic pieces I’ve done in my tenure at the Times.

Of course, everything is political — so if you google the article, high on the list you find this delightful screed from Powerline, which says that I was just looking for something to complain about amidst the Bush Boom, and concludes:

[T]here is little reason to fear a catastrophic collapse in home prices.

Krugman will have to come up with something much better, I think, to cause many others to share his pessimism.
Memories, memories.

I think that many of us would love to confront the hissing, snickering, smugly condescending bastards who have been sneering and giggling every time we have predicted nasty outcomes to their utopian dreams.

Somehow it's difficult to find them again and nearly impossible to make them own up to their platitudes - and they still think we're wrong.

They will never admit they were wrong Fogg. I think it's just genetically impossible and they've already convinced themselves that it's all the Democrats' fault. One can only hope the deluded wake up and reject these idiots some day.
