Why the Right Got It so Massively, Completely and Totally Wrong

For four years, the Right have been developing, building and constructing their own universe. There is ample evidence that Republicans continue to insulate themselves from the real world. In the Republican world the new Black Panthers are worthy of endless coverage. Sure, there are only five of these guys and 99% of all blacks in the United States have never heard of them, but to Republicans they are mainstream news. In the Republican world, the problem with United States is not that women don’t get paid at the same rate as men for doing the same job. Instead, the problem is women in the workplace. In the Republican world, we should not withdraw from Iraq. Instead, we need to use Iraq as a base to bomb Syria. And, while we’re bombing Syria, we should consider bombing Iran also. In the Republican world, it is not improbable, but impossible for a black man to grow up and become president. There must be something nefarious going on. Maybe, just maybe, that black man was born in Kenya. (In the bizarro world the Republicans live in, somehow it is easier to become president if you’re born in Kenya and immigrate to United States than if you’re born in United States. Don’t ask me to explain it.)

Just to show you how truly warped the Republican world is, Mitt Romney had his own pollsters. Now, having your own pollsters is not a bad thing. As a matter fact, it can be a good thing. But, if you ignore everybody else’s polls and only accept yours as the real, true polling in America, you’re in trouble. Now, take your time and watch Karl Rove meltdown on the set of Fox News. The only reason that Karl Rove would have this response would be if he truly believed that every other poll in the world was wrong except for Mitt Romney’s.
