A Nation of Alternative Facts

As usual, Paul Krugman has it nailed. In his July 15 column, Krugman shows that the actual facts in the Rove debacle are immaterial and Republicans -- even those thought to be fiscally conservative and socially responsible -- are drinking the Kool-Aid and marching in lockstep with The Party.

It's not just about Rove; it's also about Bush and his "leadership" style and the fact that everyone knows that Rove is a liar and a bully and a thug -- and Bush, who knows it more than anyone, won't do anything about him.

Krugman concludes by wondering what has happened to America, and how did our political system get to this point.
