Last week, you'll recall, New York Times columnist Paul Krugman began his column by saying: "A message to progressives: By all means, hang Senator Joe Lieberman in effigy," which was in seeming contradiction to his alarmed observation four months prior that "congressmen hanged in effigy" by Tea Partiers represented "something new and ugly" in American politics. Well, yesterday, the Krugger issued one of the better non-apology apologies you'll read this week:

(Management wants me to make it clear that in my last column I wasn't endorsing inappropriate threats against Mr. Lieberman.)

I for one am convinced that management would indeed like Krugman to make that clear. (Link via Wonkette.)
