Dilbert cartoon calls out Krugman

Economist Paul Krugman, who enjoys skewering the gold crowd, gets taken to task in a Dilbert cartoon for engaging in vitriol.

The New York Times columnist engages in combative debate. He was cutting when he argued with a mostly affable Ron Paul a year ago.

Krugman also belittled the Republican Party when it considered adding to the party's platform a return to the gold standard calling it a ". . .very bad, no good, truly awful idea".

Dilbert creator Scott Adams describes himself as leaning libertarian. He endorsed presidential contender Mitt Romney.
