My head is spinning

I remain flabbergasted at the ability of fellow lefties to declare Obama’s political strategies ‘losing’ even when they already have succeeded. The latest to make my head spin was Matt Rothschild.

Seriously, the detachment from reality is profound. To this day there are seemingly ordinary people (like Rothschild) who insist that Republicans voted unanimously against the stimulus bill, when in fact it was passed only by means of Republican votes.

This is not a separate issue from, for instance, PJ Carpenter’s at least one time inability to distinguish ‘explicit’ from ‘implicit’, thinking that the latter was the former – that Dick Cheney saying he backed torture was an explicit admission of criminal guilt, even though the guy was explicitly saying what he did was in his opinion legal. My head is spinning faster just thinking about it.
