  • Used by Paul Krugman here:

    The joy of watching the GOP implode tempered with the horror that Trump or a clone might actually win.

    Quote: "You know what Iā€™m talking about, of course ā€” that feeling of glee mixed with fear as one watches the cynical race-baiting of the Republican establishment finally come home to roost, confirming that you were right to be shrill (and the centrists were naive), but with the slight admixture of panic because one of these guys might actually become president."
