WOW Scott Sumner on Paul Krugman

Scott Sumner lands some pretty decent punches against Dean Baker in a recent post.

But what really caught my eye is his closing swings against Krugman, in discussing Baker's referencing Krugman:
 As for his [Baker's] appeal to authority, the Paul Krugman that won the Nobel Price was the guy who wrote Pop Internationalism, and who would have supported the current trade deal being negotiated, not the guy who’s moved so far to the left that he’s praising the loony Marxist government in Greece that almost everyone else seems to think is a bunch of crackpots.
