Liberals are out of touch with the mainstream? Hah! Conservatives are out of touch with reality.
Yes, conservatives are out of touch with reality. From believing that Plan B and vaccines against STDs promote sluttiness. To thinking tax cuts cure everything. And protecting the interests of rapists and pedophiles. They have the nerve to say that liberals are out of the mainstream of American thought. Until recently, the media has taken the GooPers word that liberals are "out of touch with the mainstream" and that liberals don't know what Americans want. Yet, if Republicans actually ran on the issues that Americans really care about like fiscal responsibility education and health care, they would lose big time. Why? Because the Republicans really aren't in touch with American values. The mainstream media is finally catching on. So what is the GooPers grand strategy to maintain their majority this year? Fear of a Democratic controlled Congress. Yeah, the only problem with that strategy is, most recent polling indicates that Americans want the Democrats to control Congress. That's as good as all the unwanted advice after 2002 and 2004 saying the Dems weren't conservative enough.
I guess that's what happens when you create your own reality.
