Denial Isn't Only in the Middle East

Harold Meyerson's column in the WaPo, "The Republican Mystery," asks how the Republicans can be so detached from reality. He offers four possible explanations:

1. "Rudy-ex-machina," meaning they hope that the party will nominate someone not considered to be part of the current Assministration debacles;

2. they think they can "make it impossible for the Dems to pass any legislation, and then run against the do-nothing Democrats;"

3. that the Rethug propaganda apparatus (Limpballs, Faux News, etc.) has actually created, over the years, the mouth-breathing activist base from whence its reality-detached pols have been drawn; and/or

4. that "good government is just not in their DNA."

In Hackwhackers' humble opinion, the answer is "all of the above."
