Wolfie 'drops' two names: Paul Krugman and David Starkey
They're both losers - and winners!
The Irish are used to adversity. And used to overcoming it.
A recession? This is a blip compared to some of the great tragedies of the past.
He doesn't mention for instance, Ireland's greatest success story – the creation of peace in the North.
In fact, Ireland was so successful in getting sworn enemies to lay down their weapons and talk to each other that the model is now being used around the world. As IrishCentral.com reported, a new initiative last week brought former fighters from Israel and Palestine to make peace with one another in Ireland.
And so, as poor "Oscar" shut down the comments section of his blog to stifle the legions of average people and above-average experts who resorted to irrelevant facts and figures in an attempt to discredit him, he became a contender in Wolfie's weekly competition.
Just as the truth was not with him when he penned (he cannot use a computer due to an ailment over which he has no control: stupidity) his anti-Ireland drivel, Professor Starkey stunned the morticians and came back to haunt the British airwaves, spewing out more stupidity than British soccer gangs, er, fans.
Sadly for onetime front-runner Krugman, he is now again part of an odd couple, sharing the limelight with the absent-brained Professor.
