Is Sarah Palin Triggered Jared Loughner Did Paul Krugman Do For Silvio Berlusconi?

by | 17th, January 2011

PAUL Krugman has been vocal in his linking Sarah Plain to Jared Loughner, the mass murdering  shooter of, among others, Gabrielle Giffords.

You can link words to Loughner‘s violence, right?

In 2008, Paul Krugman was quoted thus in the New Yorker:

“We had a little portable outside fire pit and we let people throw in an effigy or whatever they wanted to get rid of for the past eight years. One of our Italian colleagues threw in an effigy of Berlusconi.”

All good clean fun. And then in 2009: Whammo! Milan cathedral met Silvio:

Berlusconi is said to have told Paolo Bonaiuti, his spokesman, that “something might happen” because of the “climate of hate”.

And so it was that Massimo Tartaglia, a 42-year-old electronics engineer tossed the souvenir and offered the explanation: “I hate him.”

Who to blame..? Who to blame..?
