Your Detachment From Reality Is Truly Inspiring...

The Republicans lost their collective asses in the recent Wisconsin recalls. Okay, maybe that's an overstatement, but they overnight went from a 19-14 majority to a 17-16 razor thin majority. The only race, that I could tell, that was close was the the school teacher, Shelly Moore (D) and her opponent, Issac Weix (R). So, having lost a solid majority to a razor thin majority, what would you think?

Damn, we royally messed up, right? Isn't what you'd think? You screwed up somewhere, and the people are mad, so they're collectively throwing your posterior on the curb. So what do you do? Well, you reflect, look at where you screwed up, an go back and chance it.

See, this is what people who are rational do. When you make a mistake, you try to learn from it. Most of us learn from our mistakes.

So, let's see how the Republicans learned from their mistake.
"I think it's a huge victory for us," said John Hogan, director of the Committee to Elect a Republican Senate. "Voters gave us a mandate last fall. . . . They backed us up again (Tuesday). Voters told us loud and clear, 'Stay the course. Things are working.'"
Now that is some spin. At least s=2; the gravity of their loss sailed right through their head, without interacting with the mass-less object they call a brain. We're also catching a glimpse of Schrodinger's logic -  it's logic and it's nonsense at the same time, but it can only be one or the other when observed. I'm sure he intended that to be logic, oh sure - to him, it's logic. But when anyone else observes that cat, he's dead folks.

Just like the Republicans and their astroturfed movements after last night's recalls.

When your spin is so much so that you breech reentry speeds, there's no way you're getting off that ride without some serious rug burns. Who can blame them for not just jumping off? Hell, they'd probably break their necks if they tried it.

The denial that it takes to make a statement like that is impressive. I mean, really, really impressive. I don't have much else to add to that. When getting your ass kicked for screwing up says to you, "I'm doing something right, we need to stay the course!" there isn't much more I can say.

Because by that time, you're so far in orbit you won't hear me anyway.
