Paul Krugman on fringe politics & Richard Hofstadter

More scary stuff from Krugman. To get a feel for what he's written, I highly recommend the book he cites by the great American historian, Richard Hofstadter, The Paranoid Style in American Politics. Why? Because, as Krugman notes, this styles is back. Like the Invasion of the Body Snatchers (best in the original 1956 production), it's taking over more and more minds, and it's creepier than ever.
