What a Prize

Nobel Prize winning economist Paul Krugman:

I don’t want us to move to East Germany. I just want us to move to France.

Funny: according to a new Reader’s Digest poll, 52% of France is interested in moving to the U.S. Maybe that’s because France’s unemployment rate is at a low of 8%, and America’s is at a high of 6.1%. America’s GDP per capita is $45,800. France’s is $32,600. But those are facts, and facts ceased to matter around the time President Bush decided to actually fight back against those bent on destroying the West. What matters now–and what gets Americans prizes–is apologizing on behalf of your country for not being complacent socialists. Meanwhile, Europeans continue to harbor dreams of living the good life in America. Congratulations, Mr. Krugman!
