Faith vs. Reason

Dean’s World notes that Bushco is once again running its standard pre-election blitzkieg and the MAL is yet again caught by surprise. I, for one, am not surprised by either development.

It’s yet another example of how it’s not that the GOP has earned a victory, but that the Democratic Party has set itself up to lose. There are some who wonder how the MAL can do this every two years, but consider their basic political views. Does those not demonstrate a strong case of reality dysfunction? Why should they do any better in adjusting their views to account for electoral reality than they do for economic reality? After all, they have faith in their view of fundamental reality and surely that trumps any amount of reasoning about how things work.
