Krugman:Deranged Right-Wing Roots for American Failure

In today's column, Paul Krugman addresses the Right's lunatic reaction to the jobs report, just the latest sign of Right-wing madness:  

The furor over Friday’s report revealed a political movement that is rooting for American failure, so obsessed with taking down Mr. Obama that good news for the nation’s long-suffering workers drives its members into a blind rage. It also revealed a movement that lives in an intellectual bubble, dealing with uncomfortable reality — whether that reality involves polls or economic data — not just by denying the facts, but by spinning wild conspiracy theories. It is, quite simply, frightening to think that a movement this deranged wields so much political power.
