High praise for Krugman at the Power Line blog:

Paul Mirengoff:

The economic analysis Krugman serves up in his New York Times columns is often an embarrassment. ...

Unfortunately, it may well be the case that Krugman won his award due at least in part to his left-wing, anti-Bush commentary. Every year, we have occasion to note the leftist bias of the Nobel awards. The prizes seem to have become, in part, a method of rewarding Bush's harshest critics, Al Gore and Jimmy Carter for example. If there's a chemist out there who has written an anti-Bush op-ed, there may well be a Nobel Prize in his or her future. ...

... as honors go, a Nobel Prize in anything relating to public policy is not much more meaningful than praise from the Daily Kos.

The political commentary served up at Powerline is ALWAYS an embarrassment.
