Krugman: "The Great Revulsion"

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

Paul Krugman’s column “The Great Revulsion” in today’s New York Times is a must-read piece:

The election wasn’t just the end of the road for Mr. Bush’s reign of error. It was also the end of the 12-year Republican dominance of Congress.

[…]

I do hope and believe that this election marks the beginning of the end for the conservative movement that has taken over the Republican Party.

[…]

Two years ago, people were talking about permanent right-wing dominance of American politics. But since then the American people have gotten a clearer sense of what rule by movement conservatives means. They’ve seen the movement take us into an unnecessary war, and botch every aspect of that war. They’ve seen a great American city left to drown; they’ve seen corruption reach deep into our political process; they’ve seen the hypocrisy of those who lecture us on morality.

And they just said no.
