Krugman hackery

Paul Krugman changes his tune in a big way depending on the party which holds the White House:
This paper investigates selected economists, to see whether their tune changes when the party holding the White House changes. Six economists are found to change their tune—Paul Krugman in a significant way, Alan Blinder in a moderate way, and Martin Feldstein, Murray Weidenbaum, Paul Samuelson, and Robert Solow in a minor way—while eleven are found to be fairly consistent.
No surprise there.

Update: Tim Cavanaugh comes to Krugman's defense. Sort of.
