Paul Krugman, conservatives understand you just fine

In a recent blog post, Paul Krugman writes that he understands all points of view, while those who disagree with his leftist drivel, understand nothing. What kind of person believes, let alone publishes, such self serving tripe. Normally such ideas pass with adolescence.
The other thing is the way incomprehension becomes demonization. Because conservatives don’t understand at all what the other side believes, everything becomes a conspiracy theory: Obama must be indulging his grotesque ambition, because who could possibly believe that doing what he did is a good idea?

Every time someone talks about reaching across the partisan divide, remember this: one side literally can’t understand what the other wants.
