Krugman Follows the Money

Paul Krugman sees a scary pattern emerging in Washington’s big-money lobbying (well, scary if a country permanently run by Republicans scares you): Toward one-party rule. He raises the possibility that the system that is scheduled to bring Bush an unprecedented $200 million to campaign with (that is, when he’s not using taxpayer money to stage flight-suit photo-ops) is part of a larger pattern whereby an ever-growing percentage of the money that decides our national elections is flowing into Republican hands.

    Sorry, couldn’t resist.

    I think demographics will forge the course of politics, as always. Economic socialism and social conservatism are doomed.
