Republican Theory meets Reality,and goes Splat. Again.

http://bluntandcranky.wordpress.com/2013/12/02/republican-theory-meets-realityand-goes-splat-again/

Snips:
"But then, it was Karl Rove who explicity pooh-poohed reality and extolled the virtues of creating one’s own version based upon a theory. So the idea that “Republicans” cannot, and indeed should not, accept reality comes from the very core of their modern-day leadership. And so, it is not all that hard to believe that an entire party has chosen to live in a fairyland. And the fact that they choose to ignore the facts when they are not in compliance with their airy-fairy, fluffy-sparkly, unicorns-pooping-pretty -butterflies theory isn’t all that hard to understand.

But regardless of the source of the unreal world or its theoretical underpinnings, that Theory is going to go Splat whenever it runs into Reality. And what gets hit by that splattering? You guessed ‘er, Chester: it’s us."

2. So, in other words, their version of reality is still working for them.

It's gonna take an overheated Earth, rising oceans, and peasants with pitchforks to fix that.

3. Why should they care if their ideology doesn't align with reality?

 

They aren't selling solutions, they're selling candidates. If fantasy gets their guy elected, then it works, as far as they're concerned.

4. Oh, it's not them caring that matters.

It's the rest of us understanding. Then caring. Then de-jobbing the lot of them.
