  • title: Getting to Crazy
  • author: Paul Krugman
  • date: 2011-07-14
  • source: New York Times
  • topics: US/budget deficit US Republican Party
  • summary: The insanity of the GOP, which many people are finally just noticing, has been building gradually for a long time.
    • lead paragraph: There aren't many positive aspects to the looming possibility of a U.S. debt default.
