I do not think this alone. Their debt-ceiling hijinks were no doubt immensely amusing to the Tea Party fringe, but to those of us not getting the joke, they were an appalling attack on a fragile economy.
The Tea Party is turning from the voice of anger to its target, and the GOP has it hanging around its neck. The first trumpet blast of wrath came in Teamsters President James Hoffa’s intemperate call at a Democratic rally to — and I tone him down considerably — turn its candidates out of office.
We’ve reached the part of the Western where the townsfolk, long intimidated by a gang of bullies, suddenly find their courage and fight back. A snowballing of suppressed rage bodes ill for the Grand Old Party.
She goes on:
The baddest sign of all is that the townsfolk are being joined by traditional Republicans (and we assume Republican-leaning independents) who can no longer hold their tongues. For example, former Nebraska Sen. Chuck Hagel told the Financial Times that he was “disgusted” by the campaign against raising the debt ceiling.
“It was an astounding lack of responsible leadership by many in the Republican Party, and I say that as a Republican,” Hagel said. He characterized much of the recent stock-market convulsions as “the complete direct result of the lack of confidence that came out of that folly.”
Chuck Hagel. Quick, somebody get Froma her meds.
Liberalism is a mental disorder.
