If you perceive reality as the enemy, you're doing it wrong

If you perceive reality as the enemy, you're doing it wrong

By Steve Benen



Rachel noted on the show last night that there are a series of people saying things about the 2012 election "that aren't true, but it makes them feel better to say it anyway." Most notably, she highlighted a guy named Dean Chambers, best known for creating a website, Unskewed Polls, that weighted election surveys in a way Republicans liked, in order to make it look like Mitt Romney was poised to win with relative ease.

When making a list of people who looked awfully foolish when President Obama won a second term, we can start with folks like Karl Rove and Dick Morris, but Dean Chambers is certainly right up there on the list.

Given this ignominious notoriety, Chambers might be expected to lay low for a while, staying out of the public eye so as to avoid reminding people of his failures. But that's not what's happening -- Chambers has now created BarackOFraudo.com, allowing the conservative to apply his razor-sharp analytic skills to arguing the president was elected by virtue of voter fraud.

Dave Weigel talked to Chambers yesterday about his evidence, and not surprisingly, the activist had very little to offer to substantiate his strange theories. Those who see the imaginary scourge of voter fraud always seem to stumble when asked for legitimate proof.

2. There are some with clearly political mental issues in this country and I'm terming it

republicanphrenia.

Note the close correlation between schizophrenia as defined by NIH ... and the political aspect of republicanphrenia.

Am I serious? I'm beginning to think I am ... the behavior is pretty bizarre.
