Republicans cannot understand what reality is and what it isn't [View all]

This the only conclusion that I can arrive at after observing them.

This is more than just differences of opinion, like Macs are better than PCs or vice versa, but whether or not certain fundamental truths even exist for them, like evolution, basic math and civil rights for all citizens.

They invented a Barack Obama that didn't exist and ran against this fictional character, while an all too real Obama organized a campaign that ran circles around them to eventual victory.

These are people who can't even cope with the fact that, not only did they lose the last election, they lost it by wide margins and it wasn't a secret that it was going to happen that way at all. They should have known, but all they did was live in a delusional fugue state until the results came in to their incredulous surprise.

Today they're debating with themselves about the prospect of a shrinking voter base by, of all things, doubling down on same behaviors and policies that lost them this last election.

They're having the hardest time in coping with the fact that the Bush tax cuts for the rich are going to expire.

What is clear is that they have absolutely NO idea how to talk about the real world. They're used to being coddled by people who gave credence to the fantasies, as if their nonsense is equilateral with the reality based world. Now that much of that coddling has evaporated after the election, they're lost, confused and disorganized.

Much of their message discipline is gone. There's no real guidance from the GOP leadership, which has been widely discredited after their poor performance in the election.

These are not people whose minds are currently operating in the real world right now.

This is a perfect opportunity to exploit their delusional and confused state of mind. Simply cease patronizing them.

They'll figure out that the world has changed eventually and sustained exposure to REALITY is the best way to make it stick.
