Quote of the Day

“Just to be clear, thereís no evidence that Mr. Ryan is personally a racist, and his dog-whistle may not even have been deliberate. But it doesnít matter. He said what he said because thatís the kind of thing conservatives say to each other all the time. And why do they say such things? Because American conservatism is still, after all these years, largely driven by claims that liberals are taking away your hard-earned money and giving it to Those People.”

-- Paul Krugman, “That Old-Time Whistle,” New York Times, March 17, 2014. Read the whole thing.
