As Kieran notes in comments below, the comments thread to Tyler Cowen’s (perfectly reasonable) Krugman post is pretty hilarious. But given Krugman’s place of pride in the wingnut demonology, I’m sure that this is only a mere scraping of what’s out there on the Internets today. It furthermore occurs to me that someone (i.e. Me) should do a comments thread to collate and conserve the very bestest blogposts and comments on the Vast Nobel Prize Conspiracy. My opening bid, from ‘derut’ at The Volokh Conspiracy.
Excellent. He was a pseudo Nobel prize. That he deserves. As his politics is pseudoscientific. Great. Now I can applaude. I am sure many of you have watched him on cable networks. Has anyone else noticed he seems a little off. He speaks like a mouse and his beady eyes have a strange stare. He looks like if someone droped a glass he would scream.
It’s the spellings of ‘applaude’ and ‘droped’ that give it that special something. Anyone able to top that?
Update: Kathy G. had this idea before I did.
