If there ever was an oxymoron, the title of paul krugman’s column in the new york times is one: “The Conscience of a Liberal”. Now isn’t that something? What does a liberal need with a conscience when they believe in relativism? Since everything, morality included is relative, anything can be justified so there is no need for a conscience.
What brought this to mind is the recent column written by the fool. His contention is that President George Bush and Mayor Rudy Giuliani “cashed in” on the horror that was 9/11 and used it to justify a war they wanted to wage anyway.
The column of both krugman and the ny times should be: “The Lack of Conscience of a Liberal”, with a follow on of, ” and how it is destroying the United States.”
