Wisdom from Paul Krugman

Ain't this the truth?

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." [...]

In any case, remember this the next time someone calls for an end to partisanship, for working together to solve the country's problems. It's not going to happen - not as long as one of America's two great parties believes that when it comes to politics, stupidity is the best policy.

Why isn't anyone else in the "mainstream" corporate media asking this about the GOP's electoral "strategery"? Have you ever before seen so much idiocy packed into one party's platform? I didn't think so.

But hey, remember not to think in public when you're around Republicans... :-D

How very true. Forrest Gump makes a LOT more sense than the GOP "idiot-mongers" currently in power. ;-)
