I can see clearly now the election's over. One conservative gets it.
Not everyone on the right is comfortable living in the bubble. I was surprised by this comment on Redstate.org, as reports have started to come out about the failure of the GOTV software developed for the Romney campaign.
Yet more evidence that we have been living in fantasyland for too long now. I don't want to hear that this is all Romney's fault, or all the campaign's fault. The simple fact is that in the run-up to this election, we were fed a steady diet of lies, from all our "loyal" sources. We need to hold not only the Romney campaign accountable, but also the conservative press (specifically the Murdoch press - Fox was the worst of the bunch), and the establishment talking heads like Karl Rove and Peggy Noonan. We need to get clear about something: these people are selling us a product. They have been taking our money and telling us bedtime stories. We complain about the MSM, but can we honestly say that the conservative press has been more honest?
How do we expect to win elections if we can't even get straight facts about the electorate? But maybe it's our own fault. There was practically a revolt around here when Erik said he didn't think the polls were false. And yet he was right, and they were right. Have we become allergic to the truth?

The republicans have a brand image problem. Their biggest issue is their anti education image, especially when you have their supports telling people take their kids out of schools/college. The idea that schools are brainwashing their children and turning them into liberals is a dangerous idea.
