I Came Sneering, and I Left Sneering
I came to submit myself to the cliche liberal mindset yet again, and I wasn't disappointed. This book becomes more dated as time goes by, but it did present cliches and fashionable mentalities that are still alive on the Left (such as moving to Canada if a Republican is elected) (to which I always reply, "What makes you think they want a dreg like you?).

The interview takes place before the 2008 Presidential Primaries were held, after Conscience of a Liberal was released. I got this because I wanted to get a feel for what that book was about prior to buying it. But the dialog with the interviewer is amazing on its own. Events after the book's release cogent to the election and Krugman's aspirations for the contenders are able to stand on their own. I listened to this in January 2011 after mid-term elections, making it very interesting to correlate to Krugman's more current editorials. I suspect that if a follow-up interview were held today, the buoyant attitude exuded by Krugman in this 2008 interview would be more subdued.
