I'm gonna go out on a limb here and predict a backlash against the backlash because there's a big racial-cultural element at work here that has yet to fully form.
Speaking of Krugman, Annearf, he suggested last week
that a lot of the screamers are genuinely pissed, and that their noise isn't entirely orchestrated, despite the ravings of the Peggy Noonan
and Ann Coulter
crowd. They're ignorant, yes, but they're irked, and Krugman links the movement against health-insurance reform to the same angry crowd that thinks Obama is a Kenyan-born terrorist.
As a matter of fact, yes, those town hall crowds are almost all lily white, aren't they? Last time I saw such narrow demography was when the rank-and-file right showed up for Sarah Palin's screech across America.
But she lost, didn't she?
