Obstructionism and Topping a Pile with a Ribbon

Krugman on the GOP plans to stand in the way of what needs to be done with every ounce of their misguided capacity:
"And one thing to think about: if the next two years are, as they seem likely to be, one long Republican tantrum, the 2014 election is not going to be a normal midterm. It will instead be a referendum on GOP obstructionism, which may attract a lot more attention — and much higher turnout — than normal."
He may be right. And if so, let's hope the electorate sees through the cheap tricks the Republicans will surely continue to apply, just as they have in recent years. It may be too early to be particularly confident that GOP dirty tricks won't pull them through the next election.
