Santorum Southern Sweep: PCW Alabama Getaway

PCW Alabama Getaway
Demopolis City Civic Center
Demopolis, AL
Tuesday March 13th, 2012

Host: Johnny Suave

‘The Voice of PCW’ Johnny Suave and his lifesize cardboard cut-out of Shania Twain

In the ring, Suave explains it’s long overdue to bring back the nicest piece of cardboard he’s ever known – Suave’s lifesize cardboard cut-out of Shania Twain.

Crowd: Welcome back…welcome back…

Suave then informs everyone that Texas Jack (R)- representing Ron Paul (R-TX) hurt himself while wrestling in the Virgin Islands and won’t be on tonight’s show.  Texas Jack won that match for Paul but suffered a concussion when Yamamoto Tanaka (R)- for Mitt Romney (R-MA) smacked him over the head with a steel folding chair and then for good measure gave him the Japanese SuperDestroyer from the top rope.

Politically Incorrect (from left): NRA, Andrea Doria (up), Al Cahall (down), and Nic Koteen

Doria gets on the mic and says it’s nice to be back in PCW.  She’s heard a lot of stuff has transpired over the past couple of weeks about Rush Limbaugh (R) calling someone a slut.  Doria says she’s not a Rush Limbaugh fan but finds it incredibly hypocritical that the same bunch of people who are mad at Limbaugh and want him taken off the air are the same bunch of people who have made similiar, if not more insulting, references towards women they oppose- Sarah Palin, Christine O’Donnell to name a few.

This brings out Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) and Keith Olbermann (D).  Pelosi states that Limbaugh’s values are the Republican‘s values when it comes to women.

Olbermann says he’s tired of the ‘false equivalency’ being trotted out between Limbaugh and things that he may have said.

Replay: Last Thursday’s PCW Politics is War on P-SPAN
…Olbermann apologizes to female conservative commentator S.E. Cupp for referring to her as ‘a perfect demonstration of the necessity of the work Planned Parenthood does.’ …

Olbermann tells everyone to stay on point because the true villain in this is Rush-

Replay: Last Thursday’s PCW Politics is War on P-SPAN
…Olbermann then apologizes to female conservative blogger Michelle Malkin for calling her a ‘big mashed-up bag of meat with lipstick on it.’

Doria then remarks that perhaps people should boycott Countdown with Keith Olbermann on Current TV if it weren’t for the fact that no one was watching the show in the first place. Olbermann pitches a fit in the ring and calls Doria the WORST PERSON IN THE WORLD!


Suave: I KNEW IT!

Replay: Last Thursday’s PCW Politics is War on P-SPAN
Olbermann also vowed to retire his ‘Worst Person’s in the World’ segment, again, and to attempt to avoid any ‘“gratuitously abusive remarks about women, and men.’

Suave: What’s the over/under on that happening?


Pelosi screeches to the back and out comes The Green World Order: ‘Extreme Vegan’ Brock Cole Lee, GreenPete, ‘Radishing’ Rick Rube- Agronomist,  PeaceNick, and Peta from PETA.

A referee slides into the ring and we’re off.

Green World Order: ‘Radishing’ Rick Rube-Agronomist and GreenPete (D)
Politically Incorrect: NRA and Nic Koteen

This was a wild match with both teams interfering in the match.

The match turns when the Angry Left Wing Bloggers (Markos Moutilsas, Arianna Huffington, Eric Boehlert of Media Matters, and Full-Professor Paul Krugman of the NY Times) pulls NRA out of the ring and Rube and GreenPete doubleteam Koteen.

…Rube has an abdominal stretch locked in and grapevines the ankle.


Average Joe and ‘Tin Cup’ Ray McAvay hit the ring.  Average Joe armdrags GreenPete over.  Neck breaker.  McAvay hits a Bulldog out of the corner on Rube and calls for his seven iron from his caddie Tromeo.   The GWO has it well scouted and blocks Tromeo.  Brock Cole Lee tosses Rube a flower pot and he smashes it over Koteen’s head.  Rube locks in the Grapevine submission and Koteen has no choice but to tap.

WINNER: Green World Order @ 9:23

Mitt Romney Speaks
PCW Investigative Reporter Woodward Bernstein corrals Mitt Romney about the match and asks him about Rick Santorum’s chances tonight.  Romney says Santorum is at the at the desperate end of his campaign and is trying in some way to boost his prospects.  And frankly, misrepresenting the truth is not a good way of doing that.

Romney: He’s far behind in the point count. If you look at the math of how many points he’d have to win to become the nominee, it’s a very difficult road for him. And so, at this stage, he’s looking for some way to try and gain ground. I understand that. But I would hope you’d use truth as one of the pillars of your strategy as opposed to trying to come up with one attack after the other that, frankly, has been determined by those who take a careful look from the outside to be inaccurate.

Rush Limbaugh Promo
Rush Limbaugh comes out and he’s got a few things on his mind.

Limbaugh: One week after launching this all-out attack on your expertly trained broadcast host, me, El Rushbo, with talent on loan from God — a sure winner!  Going to launch Obama and the Democrats back to electorate success! What happened? It wasn’t a big winner for them. Didn’t work out the way they had all envisioned, didn’t and hasn’t worked out the way they had all hoped.  The excitement, the thrill, the anticipation. They said ‘Limbaugh’s finished, we’ve got the women back, we’re marching on the victory. It’s a done deal.

Limbaugh lights up an Arturo Fuente Don Carlos cigar, probably breaking some law regarding smoking indoors, and continues.

Limbaugh: Obama lost ground with women. I can’t begin to tell you the dismay and the shock and probably panic that exists in the White House and in the salons of the elites of the Democratic Party over this.  They didn’t even consider this a possibility. This never entered their mind. This was going to be the end — not just of me, folks … the end of talk radio.

Limbaugh smiles and finishes by saying the Democrats can’t get rid of him…no one can get rid of-

*Def Leppard’s ‘Tear It Down’ plays*

‘The Extreme Equalizer’ Whiskey Tango Foxtrot


Tear it down – There’s got to be a better way
Tear it down – I can’t wait another day
Tear it down – There’s got to be a better way
Tear it down – If only you could stay
All night long

Limbaugh drops the cigar as the Extreme Equalizer bolts for the ring.  Limbaugh slides out and flees up the ramp with WTF close behind.

Why should you buy this book?

#showplug Jesusland v Progressiveville isn’t predictable partisan trashing of other side like other political books nor does it pander to the fringes of both sides like most books do. #tlot #tcot

#showplug Jesusland vs Progressiveville parodies the very ones responsible for over the top devisive political discussion: Markos Moutilsas, Rush Limbaugh, Sarah Palin, Keith Olbermann, Chris Matthews, Ann Coulter, Ed Schultz, Glenn Beck, Bill O’Reilly, among others.

#showplug Our cover w/ @SarahPalinUSA and @KeithOlbermann sums up what our political discourse has become. #election2012 #politics #tlot #tcot

Brought to you by the same demented bunch behind Political Championship Wrestling, Jesusland vs. Progressiveville is a political satire about the sorry state of American politics.

Available at Amazon.com and other online bookstores.

Magnum PO’d (R) w/Newt Gingrich (R-GA)
A. Tom Bomb (R) w/Rick Santorum (R-PA) and Daisy Cutter-Bomb

Wild three way action as all three wrestlers fight as if their lives depended on it.

Eventually, Magnum gets eliminated at the 6:03 mark via pin by A-Bomb.

…Tanaka eats a boot to the face.  Knee clip by A-Bomb and cover…1…2…Tanaka powers out.  A-Bomb goes for the Atomic Power Bomb but Tanaka blocks it.  Tanaka charges. MISSES! Tanaka staggers out of the corner…ATOMIC POWER BOMB!  Romney calls for help but Santorum comes over and battles him on the ring apron.   A-Bomb lifts Tanaka a second time…ATOMIC POWER BOMB #2!   Corporate Might: Big Oil and Kirk Walstreit runs to the apron (why), and eats the rope assisted DDT from Daisy Cutter-Bomb.

A-Bomb covers! 1…2…3!

WINNER: A. Tom Bomb @ 11:30

Santorum hits the ring and celebrates with A-Bomb and Daisy Cutter-Bomb.

Points Update:
Romney 474, Santorum 228, Gingrich 137, Paul 64

How Cowards are causing a Strategic Economic Crash of the West

Cowards have no business making hard choices. They are psychologically, physiologically and spiritually deficient, and cannot (are incapable) of making the right choice. They are not built for it — because they are cowards.

Furthermore, they are so afraid, they will not allow those with courage to make the right choice for them.

Cowardliness is rampant in the West and epidemic in the Western financial elite.

Cowardliness is the driving force behind the elites inability to stop doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different result.

In order to continue be cowardly, the West creates bigger and bigger bailouts — for nation states that cannot stop giving money and services away because it is somehow moral to bankrupt everyone in the name of giving a class of people what others make and create.

The planned International Monetary Fund $800 billion bailout of Spain and Italy is the latest cowardly act of the Western financial elite. It is another prime example of cowards who take the easy path out every time. A key part of the groupthink-gone-wild–is that the repeated failure of the repeated bailouts of Greece is actively ignored.

Printing Euros, printing dollars, piling more debt on old debt and debasing Western currency will not change the strategic nature of the debt crisis — is the only solution they ever try. All the while, the foundations of the strategic debt crisis — Western spending on social services like health care, retirement payments — are left unchanged in any meaningful sense.

Each time there is a bailout the cries and shouting of cuts in spending are proclaimed loudly and dutifully printed and carried on television by the international media elite, all the while, money is printed or borrowed and handed over.

Oh, and no real cuts never, ever happen. Remember the “debt ceiling” debate? Guess how much spending the U.S. cut in 2012? You will never, ever guess. The Congressional Budget Office announced the cuts in 2012 — a whopping $1 billion.

The cowards in the West refuse to recognize that they have reached the end of efficacy of the model of taking from those who make money, and borrowing from those who have money, to give it to those who cannot make money or borrow it.

This cowardliness combined with the elite’s ability to actively refuse to face reality will allow the rise of China and Islam as economic powers that will overtake the West.

China has tried to tell the West it is on a suicide-by-debt path, to no avail.

Islam will soon have a new, hard currency based on oil.

Meanwhile, the elite of the financial West do not even know what the term “fiscal gap” means, let alone that the U.S. fiscal gap, at its last counting, was minus $211 trillion U.S. dollars.

The cowards want to do more of the same failing — except bigger. It is like rampping up production on wiggets that lose money. The more you make and sell at a loss, the more money you lose.

The coward-in-chief is Obama. He kicked off the super-debt, super-spendathon with the stimulus and ObamaCare — which he forced on his hapless fellow Democrats and caused 83 freshmen GOP U.S. House members to be elected. Paul Krugman is the cowards “intellectual” leader. And Western Europe is continually lectured by the U.S. and it’s cowardly financial elite leaders, to just print more money to “solve” their problems.

The cowards think that if they just give the Western economy more time or “breathing room” to grow their way out of debt, all will be well. But the policy of borrowing money and taking money from those who earn it or have it to give to those who don’t have it or cannot make it, is stopping economic growth.

Those who have it or make it cannot service the massive nation-state debt and pay for all the services and wealth transfer mechanisms the elite continue to put place (and refuse to cut) to provide cash and services. This is the heart of the matter.

The cowards cannot stop giving other people’s money away, because to do so is immoral, they think. Obama’s cry that ObamaCare is the “right thing to do” is a perfect example. And the fact that ObamaCare was the key issue that killed any real cuts in entitlement spending for the super committee, is another log on the fire that is burning down the economic stability and growth of the West.

If Congress does not stop the cowards from using U.S. money to bailout Spain and Italy through the International Monetary Fund then the West will have themselves to blame for the rise of Islam and China.

But who really cares about the strategic economic posture of West? The Federal Reserve or the International Monetary Fund or the U.S. Treasury and it’s leaders, which keeps urging Europe to print money?

Each of those institutions want to do more of what has failed — and each believe that debt of nations is the route to power over those nations, power to those institutions who offer debt, which will have power over those who take the debt. (A quick reading of Confessions of an Economic Hit Man, would help the ignorant understand, maybe.)

Meanwhile, Joe-six-pack is forced to endure and muddle through an economy that does not grow, with a chronic, Europe-like unemployment rate, and a currency that is being debased by electronically creating trillions of it, right out of thin air.

This is moral, according to the cowards.

It is certain economic suicide — with blinders on — and the active and willful refusal to recognize the fiscal gap, is exhibit E in the ignorance of the elite to suppress basic facts which may, perhaps, possibly, if-the-planets-align, stop them from acting cowardly.

And, God do I hate cowards. They are destroying our country and the Western world one bailout, one massive social program like ObamaCare, and one fiscal crisis summit at a time.

Things to Cut?

Paul Krugman wants to tax all sorts of things and in his zeal to tax (coupled with his partisan hackery) he chooses to ignore the GOP was willing to raise taxes on the Super Committee.

Krugman wants to tax the rich, tax financial transactions, tax pretty much everything. It has become the Democrats’ mantra: tax, tax, tax.

But they still can’t deal with this question: if we raise taxes on everybody earning $200,000.00 a year or more to the Democrats’ preferred level, whatever that level might be, we still won’t have enough to close this year’s budget deficit, let alone actually start whittling away at the national debt. So what do we cut?

But wait, there’s more.

Historically, tax revenue into the federal government has averaged 18.5% of GDP. It has gotten as high as 21%, but only during the major economic boom and dot com bubble of 1998. It didn’t last long. The historic average returned.

The historic average existed both before and after the Bush tax cuts. That’s right. The rate of revenue into the Treasury was not significantly impacted by Bush’s tax cuts. The biggest impact on tax revenue has been the loss of American jobs.

As Marco Rubio said earlier this year, we don’t need new taxes. We need new tax payers.

So again, if we raise taxes and it won’t even close the budget deficit and if we raise taxes and still average out at about 18.5% of GDP, what should we cut to close the deficit and what should we do to get Washington’s spending back to 18.5% of GDP?

The Democrats won’t answer that because at the end of the day they, like the GOP, agree with Dick Cheney. To them, deficits don’t really matter. It’s all politics.

Krugman’s Sour Note, Daniel-San (I) Gets Big Win: PCW Extreme Political TV

PCW Extreme Political TV
Lehigh Stabler Arena
Bethleham, PA
Monday September 12th, 2011
Host: Johnny Suave

*Ten Bell Salute to commemorate the Tenth Anniversary of 9/11*

Suave introduces Professor Paul Krugman (D) of the New York Times in the ring.

Suave: “He is the man who knows more than you- just ask him.  Paul Krugman!”

Krugman says he doesn’t want to rain on anyone’s parade but he claims “the memory of 9/11 has been irrevocably poisoned” by the likes of George W. Bush and Rudy Giuliani.   Krugman targets America and its quote, ‘fake heroes.’  Krugman claims that the atrocity has been hijacked by George W. Bush and Rudy Giuliani who he says capitalized on the horrible crimes.   And then the attack was used to justify an unrelated war the neocons wanted to fight, for all the wrong reasons.  Krugman produces some nice heat from the crowd with his incessant whining.

Suave interrupts Professor Krugman and asks him isn’t it time to give the conspiracy talk a rest because it’s getting embarrassing.

Krugman waves Suave away and then closes by telling ‘The Voice of PCW’ to go to the first match because he doesn’t want anyone to comment on what he’s just said.

Fox News’s Greg Gutfield takes issue with that and climbs into the ring with Krugman.  Krugman tells him to get out, that intellectually Gutfield isn’t even in the same solar system as he is and he doesn’t want any comments to what he’s say for ‘obvious reasons.’

Gutfield: “The worst part, at the end of his little rant, the creep says  ‘I’m not going to allow comments for obvious reasons.  That obvious reason: He’s a coward. Why else would you ban responses?  He is like a 10-year-old boy crank calling all of us to hang up before he hears the response, hearing shame for his own wickedness.  Now I watched the memorial services and I feel sorry for the families whose grief never ends, but since I’m lousy at emotional reflection, usually I avoid it.  But I can summarize how many feel today in nine words: Go to hell Paul Krugman, you bitter bearded buffoon.”


Suave reviews two matches held earlier in the night…

California Teachers Union: ‘The Foul Pole’ Andy Golatta/Malibu Dusty (D) vs. Charlie Blackwell/’No Frills’ Chris Escondido (I)
…Escondido in control with a Boston Crab on Malibu Dusty.  Then two men rush the ring and assault Blackwell and Escondido.

Suave: “HOLY CRAP!  It’s the Longshoremen, Pete and Russell, from Longview, Washington.  We knew they were coming to PCW but not this soon!”

Malibu Dusty rolls Escondido over and gets the easy pinfall.

Corporate Might:  Big Oil and Kirk Walstreit (R) vs. Big Labor/Triple R (D).
This one never got started.  The Longshoremen (D) came back out again and attacked Big Oil and Walstreit.  After what went down with Independents Blackwell and Escondido earlier,  the entire Republican roster came out to take them on and it was just a bloody chaotic mess.

Suave states that now the PCW Competition Committee will have to decide how to handle this.  Will the #1 contenders match next week be a tag team three way dance?  Stay tuned.


PCW Investigative Reporter Woodward Bernstein tries to interview The Longshoremen.  Bernstein barely gets a word out and Russell and Pete attack him with f-bombs and other unpleasantries.  Finally, they lift Bernstein and give him the ‘ShipWreck’ on the floor and leave.

Medical personnel quickly arrive.

Video tribute to PCW Champion Yamamoto Tanaka (D) who’s leaving after the Lock and Load PPV show.

First, Tanaka’s first title win…

Tanaka had been on the trail of ‘The One Man Hollywood A-List’ Stone Chism for several weeks before scoring a three-way match for the title along with Khalid-El.  After the Iranian was dispatched, Tanaka destroyed Chism to win the PCW Title.

Suave: “Tanaka’s first title reign would be surprisingly short thanks to a boycott of PCW’s Kingman, Arizona house show by the Democrats over Arizona’s enaction of a controversial immigration law.  Tanaka no-showed the event and under PCW rules he forfeited the title to Average Joe.”

Tanaka’s second title win…

Tanaka regained the PCW Title at Loose Cannons Unleashed 6 in an epic battle with Average Joe that lasted 11 hours and three days.

Suave: PCW Extreme Election Night 2010, the phenomenon known as Jill- Berg got her shot against Tanaka for the PCW title.  Tanaka came out for the match looking as if he’d been hit by a truck.   It was clear from the outset that something had taken place in the back before the match from the sluggish manner Tanaka moved in the ring.   Berg won in 41 seconds.  Then Triple R (D) and ‘The One Man Hollywood A-List’ Stone Chism (D) both came out and took responsibility for the attack on Tanaka to get him out the way so one of them could win the PCW Title.

Tanaka’s third title win…

March 27, 2011 – In a wild match, Tanaka defeated Kevin Scott at PCW Weapons of Mass Political Destruction to become a three time PCW Champion.

Suave: “Thank you, Yamamoto Tanaka and good luck to you.”


PCW Women’s Champion Callie Urban (D) is in the ring.  Urban calls out PCW’s Queen of Extreme Valora Salinas (I) to the ring.

Valora walks out and joins Urban in the ring.

Quick video montage of Valora’s ‘path of rage’ through PCW ever since she made her debut a few weeks back.

Urban wants to know what the deal is.  She knows the Democrats not signing her is a sticky point with her and the Triple Threat’s interference costing her a match against Kathryn Randall Collins (D) really pissed her off.  Callie says she’s come out here to give Valora what she wants- a title shot at PCW Lock and Load.

The crowd erupts.  Callie says there’s a condition- the condition is that the path of rage stops.  Urban asks Valora if they have a deal.  Valora nods.

So, it’s on.  PCW Women’s Champion Callie Urban puts her title on the line against Valora Salinas in less than two weeks at PCW Lock and Load.

MAIN EVENT: Round Two of the Lock and Load Play-In
Daniel-San (I) w/Mrs. Miyagi vs. Paul Ryan’s Raiders: Nick Ray and Kevin Collins (R) vs. Triple R (D)
…Daniel-San tries for a sleeper so Triple R kicks him in the nuts twice then ball shots him on the ropes as well. Ray and Collins start involving the audience by borrowing assorted plunder to beat Daniel-San with. More groin shots.  Triple R bashes him with a phone.  Then out of the blue, Ray and Collins turn on Triple R and slam him on a chair.  Double cover…1…2…3.   TRIPLE R eliminated.

…Daniel-San is pissed and to punctuate that statement he punches Ray in the balls.  Collins comes in and gets dumps on his head.  Mrs. Miyagi leans in and chokes Ray with the belt.  Crowd wants blood.  Daniel-San piledrives Collins on the steel chair.   LA-BELL LOCK!  Collins taps.  KEVIN COLLINS eliminated.

…Daniel-san and Triple R get into a brawl outside the ring.  Charlie Blackwell (I) runs out and collides with the referee.  That gives Triple R the opening to run in and cane the crap out of everyone.  Blackwell takes a great shot and the ref is next.  Daniel-San catches Ray with a piledriver.   Blackwell ducks a second cane shot and kicks Triple R in the balls.  Triple R then gets a ride over the top rope.  Daniel-San set for the Crane Kick…Good night Nick Ray!  Cover…1…2…3   NICK RAY eliminated.

WINNER: Daniel-San @ 12:15

The card for PCW Lock and Load in less than two weeks:

New York Times liberal cowardly attacks Bush as “fake hero” on 9/11

Paul Krugman who is a far-left liberal writing for the far-left New York Times Newspaper, called George W. Bush a “fake hero” yesterday for “cashing in” on 9/11.  I don’t agree with a lot of what Bush did, no one does (except Sean Hannity), but at the end of the day George W. Bush handled the tragedy with care, faith and true leadership.  Bush did use it to go into unnecessary wars, and instead of the minority party stopping him as republicans (that Krugman hates so much) have done to Obama, democrats cheered him on the entire way.  He made mistakes. 

I don’t agree with the entire Bush doctrine.  We have lost too many American lives and too many American freedoms — Republicans are largely responsible for that and neo-cons are paying with the tea party.  But in every other way, George W. Bush made sure that Americans were never attacked again.  Say what you will about W., but Bush kept Bin Laden off balance and Americans safe in the literal sense.  Krugman doesn’t have to care about what would have been, because he is just a newspaper columnist, not a leader, but if there is one thing Bush was not, it was a “fake hero.”

President Bush inspired us without teleprompters, that is something Paul Krugman will never be able to understand.

Economists Against Economics

Economist and Nobel Laureate Paul Krugman is so discredited that he’s become the punchline to nearly any joke. We at TLW love to write about him simply because few people in the public arena provide such entertainment value. Yet another example of this is today’s anti-GOP hit-piece, entitled ”Republicans Against Science”:

…Mr. Hunstman has been willing to say the unsayable about the G.O.P. — namely, that it is becoming the “anti-science party.” This is an enormously important development. And it should terrify us.To see what Mr. Huntsman means, consider recent statements by the two men who actually are serious contenders for the G.O.P. nomination: Rick Perry and Mitt Romney.

Mr. Perry, the governor of Texas, recently made headlines by dismissing evolution as “just a theory,” one that has “got some gaps in it” — an observation that will come as news to the vast majority of biologists. But what really got peoples’ attention was what he said about climate change: “I think there are a substantial number of scientists who have manipulated data so that they will have dollars rolling into their projects. And I think we are seeing almost weekly, or even daily, scientists are coming forward and questioning the original idea that man-made global warming is what is causing the climate to change.”

That’s a remarkable statement — or maybe the right adjective is “vile.”

Putting aside the fact that Krugman has, more than once, contradicted the college text that he co-wrote with his wife, this rediculous screed proves that Dr. Krugman should stick to economics and leave science to the scientists. As Paul Simon points out:

Krugman, after all, is an economist and we all know that is the most empirical of sciences — as opposed to the methods of those parvenus at CERN (the European Organization for Nuclear Research) who just came out with a new study of cosmic rays and clouds, which is turning climate science upside down:

CERN’s 8,000 scientists may not be able to find the hypothetical Higgs boson, but they have made an important contribution to climate physics, prompting climate models to be revised.

The first results from the lab’s CLOUD (“Cosmics Leaving Outdoor Droplets”) experiment published inNature today confirm that cosmic rays spur the formation of clouds through ion-induced nucleation. Current thinking posits that half of the Earth’s clouds are formed through nucleation. The paper is entitled Role of sulphuric acid, ammonia and galactic cosmic rays in atmospheric aerosol nucleation.

This has significant implications for climate science because water vapour and clouds play a large role in determining global temperatures. Tiny changes in overall cloud cover can result in relatively large temperature changes.

Unsurprisingly, it’s a politically sensitive topic, as it provides support for a “heliocentric” rather than “anthropogenic” approach to climate change: the sun plays a large role in modulating the quantity of cosmic rays reaching the upper atmosphere of the Earth.

Oops. I guess Krugman hasn’t been keeping up with the latest issues of Nature.

Well, no matter. Forget CERN. They’re only the world’s largest particle physics laboratory and the world wide web began there, etc. What do they know? There are other sources like the Asia-Pacific Journal of Atmospheric Sciences.

If Krugman didn’t exist, we would be forced to make him up.
