The Crazy Party

21 September 2013 |permalink | email article

Paul Krugman notes that the Republicans are approaching a political moment of truth where the elite has lost control of the Frankenstein-like monster it created. So now we get to witness the hilarious spectacle of Karl Rove in the Wall Street Journal, pleading with Republicans to recognize the reality that Obamacare can’t be defunded. Why hilarious? Because Mr. Rove and his colleagues have spent decades trying to ensure that the Republican base lives in an alternate reality defined by Rush Limbaugh and Fox News. Can we now say “hoist with their own petard”? Of course, the coming confrontations are likely to damage America as a whole, not just the Republican brand. But, you know, the political moment of truth was going to happen sooner or later. We might as well have it now.
