Like a car wreck, it's just too difficult to look away from continued Republican expression of shock at having lost the election that all the data said they were likely to lose. But it provides a perfect launching pad for discussing all the things their disconnect from reality means. We spent a good hour or more on the unfortunate Tennessee Republican Beth Cox, profiled in the Washington Post, and what her story might tell us. And we just had to pause to note RedState's boo-hoo-ing about the Romney campaign being a "consultant con job." Dude, the Romney EVERYTHING is a consultant con job! But amazingly enough, even as the traditional media is turning out their torrent of coverage of how out of it Republicans really are, they're still after us to look for "compromise" with the people who hate numbers, science, reason, logic & economics. And to top it all off, they're giving Paul Ryan a waiver on his term-limited chairmanship of the Budget Committee so he can negotiate the undoing of supposedly "automatic" spending cuts. Ever wonder why nothing in Washington ever seems to work quite right? (P.S. Don't worry, we had technical trouble, but the annoying clicking DOES go away!)
