If you’ve quit paying attention to the Tucson shooting case, first of

all, congratulations. Here is what you’ve missed: The

nearly-assassinated Democratic Congresswoman is getting better, and the

public discussion of her shooting is getting worse.

focus on a relatively narrow but instructive development: How

rightbloggers have promoted to their primary object of hatred — above

even the despised Obama, at least for the moment — mild-mannered

economist Paul Krugman.
