It would be a crime if I kept these recent insults all to myself:
“Cullen Roche – what a blowhard.”
I’ve never actually understood what a blowhard is. I guess I could figure it out if I really wanted to, but I think maybe I don’t.
“This guy is a delusional dictator wannabe.”
I’ve actually never wanted that kind of power or spotlight. Too much pressure.
“Cullen’s obviously ignorant. “
This guy could be on to something there….
“This guy has his head up his butt. “
Okay, I understand the meaning there, but can anyone confirm if this is even possible? I seriously doubt it.
“The author is a homophobic racist and an abject bore….”
I like how being an “abject bore” seems to be on par with being homophobic and racist in this guy’s book. And yes, while I’m almost certainly an abject bore I am definitely not racist or homophobic.
“I suspect that Cullen Roche is a pen name that Krugman uses because everyone recognizes that he is a fool.”
Yes, all those back and forths we’ve had over the years about IS-LM and endogenous money – we couldn’t fool them Paul, I mean, Cullen, I mean, Paul…..Who am I?
None of those compare to my all-time favorite insult from just after I changed my profile picture to the suit at the beach picture:
“what kind of douche wears a suit to the beach?”
A tremendously good question. To which I could only respond:
“Technically, I wasn’t at the beach. I was on a cliff overlooking the beach. So your question should be: “what kind of douche wears a suit to a cliff overlooking the beach”. To that, I do not have a great answer. 🙂 Sorry.”
