Renowned Bush-hater, Paul Krugman of the defunct news rag, the New York Times, has won the Nobel Prize for economics, spurring waves of anger from Republicans who have come to despise him for his scathing critiques and adherence to "facts."

"He's a member of the reality-based community" former Bush puppeteer, Karl Rove, derisively sneered, "Sweden, that sounds kind of like old Europe to me anyway."

Bill O'Reilly of the even-handed news organization, Fixed Noise added: "First Al Gore and now this f**ker?" When prodded, Mr. O'Reilly, who was having his lunchtime falafel, managed to put together an effective argument consisting of only the words "Shut" and "Up."

Krugman was recognized for his work in establishing a new theory that helps answer questions regarding the effects of free-trade and globalization. When asked what this honor meant to him, Krugman noted: "I was right, oh yeah and chicks dig Nobel winners."

In other news, or maybe as a response, Republican presidential candidate, John McCain yelled at a cloud.

His running mate, energy expert Sarah Palin could not personally be reached for comment, but her staff reported that she can see Sweden from her house and this made her a Nobel Laureate as well.
