“Things are in the saddle, and ride mankind.” *


Paul Krugman this morning:

Today, as in the early years of the Clinton administration but to an even greater extent, right-wing extremism is being systematically fed by the conservative media and political establishment….And at this point, whatever dividing line there was between mainstream conservatism and the black-helicopter crowd seems to have been virtually erased.

In those two sentences, he sums up the plight of the GOP in 2009 and, worse, the frightening reality for all of us.

Encouraging and amplifying  hatred, mistrust and fear insures that we will eventually reap the whirlwind.

Something big and bad is coming.

* Ralph Waldo Emerson
