28. Black dude named Barack Obama won the Presidency of the United States of America
Krugman, who has, at best, been elected to an associate membership of the invited lecture luncheon series committee of the Princeton University economics department, thinks that was pretty easy.

Krugman is making a fool of himself, and you can show me a hundred Nobel prizes and I'll say the same thing.

What a buffoon.
