Krugman Explains The Right’s Delusions

This is a pretty succinct description of the nuttery that passes for normal on the right nowadays.

The thing that is really driving conservatives crazy, I think, is that their identity politics just isn’t working like it used to. Their whole approach has been based on the belief that Americans vote as if they live in Mayberry, and fear and hate anyone who looks a bit different; now that the country just isn’t like that, they’ve gone mad.

It has to be noted that the most trusted man in Mayberry, Sheriff Andy Taylor, is on the Democratic side. Also, Sheriff Andy is against warrantless wiretapping and for the rule of law.
