    I've been reading Krugman's column for some time now,  Occasionally he will make a prediction going out two to four years. I've found them to be the real take home of an article.  They have been frighteningly correct.  At the end of the article he made one today:

    It’s a dangerous situation. The G.O.P. is lost and rudderless, bitter and angry, but it still controls the House and, therefore, retains the ability to do a lot of harm, as it lashes out in the death throes of the conservative dream.

    Our best hope is that business interests will use their influence to limit the damage. But the odds are that the next few years will be very, very ugly.

    Sobering, it casts a new light on the Republicans' actions in Michigan.  They seem to be practicing MAD (Mutual Assured Destruction).  It won't work in the long run but will create a lot of pain and suffering in the meantime.

    We need to convince people that brand R is poison.  How to go about this, I'm not sure.  But I did hear Thom Hartmann label the Michigan Republicans who voted for "right-to-work" as "Koch Heads".

    Wonderful framing.  Perhaps the start of a 'meme?
