Christ, these people really did live inside of the bubble. I mean, I knew this after Romney's Benghazi thing (Please proceed, Governor) disaster, but I honestly didn't think they believed their own bullshit.

This is very bad for democracy and for a two party system. As Maddow said the other night, how do we come to terms to fix our problems when the two sides are arguing over facts?

I find this pretty scary. And I am hugely thankful that Romney did not get elected as his cluelessness is truly epic in nature. Imagine that cluelessness in an American president!! It heartens me that so many people saw through him.

I just had another thought.

For years, I really thought that all the talkers on Fox, Limbaugh, Beck, et al, were just bullshit artists, solely out to make a buck (I still believe this, to a degree), but this whole thing was really a wake up call that these people truly believe all the bullshit they spew. The hatred is real. The animosity and fear of whites not being a majority, and the male not being the commander of it all, is really how they feel (I can't wrap my mind around Coulter, Ingraham, and the other Fox babes and how they reconcile what they do, just as I never could with Phyllis Schlafly, who felt that women belonged in the kitchen...all women but her, apparently).

It is such a bizarre mindset that I cannot fathom it. But I now believe that all these people truly buy into their own bullshit - it is how their minds work.

I don't know what is scarier...that they were selling it for money or that they actually believe it.

You've got to remember that Romney has always been a CEO, and it's obvious that his style is to surround himself with "yes men and women", so all he ever hears is exactly what he wants to hear. You could see it in his face every time a reporter dared to ask him a question that wasn't on his approved list.


Good riddance, and I hope he enjoys riding up and down in his car elevator. I'm going to enjoy never seeing his condescending sneer ever again.
