    kNOw-nothingism

    Republicans, once hailed as the “party of ideas,” have become the party of stupid.

    Now, I don’t mean that G.O.P. politicians are, on average, any dumber than their Democratic counterparts. And I certainly don’t mean to question the often frightening smarts of Republican political operatives.

    What I mean, instead, is that know-nothingism — the insistence that there are simple, brute-force, instant-gratification answers to every problem, and that there’s something effeminate and weak about anyone who suggests otherwise — has become the core of Republican policy and political strategy. The party’s de facto slogan has become: “Real men don’t think things through.”

    We can always count on paul Krugman to give us an insight into the lunatic view.

    Back in the real world, the Dems did exactly the same thing but with weaker kness when the shitstain GoPers ruled the roost.

    Both parties are drinking from the same toxic trough of corporate bribes.

    BOTH PARTIES.

    Why on earth do you think the OBAMA and BUSH LLboth bailed out the banks full force, and have failed to do the same for the people?

    Honestly, you partisans are damned fools.

    You're well meaning, but your loyalty to these parties make you little more than tools for the cabals that are truly a menace to this democratic republic

    LOL

    Stimulus ain't stimulating, Pelosi promised to lower gas prices (back when it was $1.80/gallon) and now even Obama is running against hos first year, so what's a Dem to do?

    Well, they could go Animal House and do a road trip, but let's blame Republicans, who presently have NO say in the government now anyway.

    LOL

    Yeah, take Krugman seriously.

    LOL

    And one party is applauding the Supreme Court dumping billions of gallons of toxic poison into the trough?

    Does anyone on the right ever contemplate the outcome of allowing out economy to collapse?

    Does anyone on the right believe that health care costs that are eating up businesses and families will go down if we ignore it?

    Really...simple minded people have simple minded answers...no, no, and....NO

    Having entitlement programs in the trillions and still underfunded by tens of trillions will collapse an economy.
