Kooky Krugman: Big GOP Wins in 2010 Will Hurt the Party

I don't speak moonbat so maybe someone can help decipher this lunatic screed for me. Deranged NY Times hack Paul Krugman today bemoans the fact conservatives are rising up and influencing the GOP. Naturally, he goes on whining about the evil influence of Sarah Palin, Rush Limbaugh and Glenn Beck, a lazy man's rehash of White House talking points that can be found pretty much anywhere in the kook-left blogosphere. If I didn't know better I'd think I was reading the incoherent ramblings of a washed-up jazz musician suffering from creationist derangement syndrome. Whatever the case, Krugman comes to the conclusion that if the GOP makes strides in the 2010 midterms it'll turn out badly for them.

In fact, the party of Limbaugh and Beck could well make major gains in the midterm elections. The Obama administration’s job-creation efforts have fallen short, so that unemployment is likely to stay disastrously high through next year and beyond. The banker-friendly bailout of Wall Street has angered voters, and might even let Republicans claim the mantle of economic populism. Conservatives may not have better ideas, but voters might support them out of sheer frustration.

And if Tea Party Republicans do win big next year, what has already happened in California could happen at the national level. In California, the G.O.P. has essentially shrunk down to a rump party with no interest in actually governing — but that rump remains big enough to prevent anyone else from dealing with the state’s fiscal crisis. If this happens to America as a whole, as it all too easily could, the country could become effectively ungovernable in the midst of an ongoing economic disaster.

The point is that the takeover of the Republican Party by the irrational right is no laughing matter. Something unprecedented is happening here — and it’s very bad for America.
Krugman conveniently forgets which party now controls the entire government that is overseeing--as he puts it--disastrously high unemployment. But any counter to that by the irrational right will only hurt the GOP, the ones trying to do something about it. Seems Krugman would rather have the disaster continue than cede any power to the bogeymen (and women) on the right he so fears. Seems he'd be comfortable becoming a banana republic just as long as Rush Limbaugh can't celebrate a victory on the air.

Krugman isn't the only one parroting this nonsense. It was the popular talking point on the Sunday babblehead shows.
