The leading presidential candidate among Iowa's imbecile bloc has, in a kind of perverted Krugmanesque way, nothing to offer but real-world solutions to real-world crises.
Michele Bachmann is, naturally, opposed to raising that silly old debt ceiling, since the government, as we all know, can easily pay its bills with only a fraction of its usual income. But wait. There is an exception to Bachmann's peculiar, individual mandate. She would vote for raising the ceiling, but ...
they would have to defund Obamacare.
Observed The Hill: "Of course, that's an incredibly unlikely proposition, and Bachmann acknowledged as much" in a Fox News interview.
But at least she's out there, fighting the witless fight, proposing the preposterously unachievable, casting her piercing light on the utterly pointless and further lobotomizing the electorate.
American democracy, the contemporary GOP, the morons: Paul Krugman's they.
