Recent political reporting suggests that Republican leaders are in a state of high anxiety, trapped between an angry base that still views Obamacare as the moral equivalent of slavery and the reality that health reform is the law of the land and is going to happen. But those leaders don’t deserve any sympathy. For one thing, that irrational base is a Frankenstein monster of their own creation.
