Froomkin's Firing

By now everyone knows that Dan Froomkin was summarily fired by the Washington Post. In the meantime stellar voices like gasbag George Will, David Broder, Charles Krauthammer, David Ignatius and Michael Gerson continue to write for the fading paper at death's door.

But dear readers; there's a sure-fire logical reason why Froomkin had to go. And Nobel Memorial Prize winner Paul Krugman is more than happy to explain to you why it was so.

Uh, at least three of the "gasbag[s]" you identify are nationally-syndicated columnists, who therefore actually have reach well beyond the readership of the Post, and are a source of profits for the Washington Post company.
Fear not, Froomkin will have his own syndicated column before you can say,"Give me more gas."
Perhaps he will. And Krugman may be a decent economist, too. But as a columnist he is, to borrow a word, a "moonbat."
