I love Paul Krugman, mostly for his clarity and vision, but also because he's not afraid to call famous people out. As he did yesterday on his blog at the NYT:
The thing is, Greenspan isn’t just being a bad economist here, he’s being a bad person, refusing to accept responsibility for his errors in and out of office. And he’s still out there, doing his best to make the world a worse place.I couldn't help but picture Andrea Mitchell cracking her dry and dusty pancake makeup with a scowl as she read this. Krugman is a gift.
