Paul Krugman has a post up today about the "austerians in which he underlines the extent to which these conservatives -- excuse me, that's really "conservatives" -- are damaging themselves. There are, he says, "gratifying signs of desperation." Same old story: facts annoy the bejesus out of 'em but don't change their minds.
At least they're losing traction -- pretty fast now. But, as Krugman warns, don't get too optimistic.
As I said, these signs of desperation are gratifying. Unfortunately, these people have already done immense damage, and still retain the power to do a lot more. ...Krugman, NYT blog
