To see just how truly deluded some people can be by their political biases, check out the comments on the debate on Townhall. There you will learn:
Obama lost the debate because he is a socialist
He'll lose because he looked at McCain and agreed, just like Nixon did to Kennedy
That Obama is only winning because he's in cahoots with the mainstream media (abbreviated MSM in Wingnutland) who lets him lie
That the people will "get it" if they let Palin loose
Many chants of ACORN!
That to find out what really happened in the meeting with Bush we need to go to Rush Limbaugh's site, because of course the "MSM" is lying about it.
That Obama's use of the bracelet from a soldier's mother was "a gaffe" (anything they don't like is a "gaffe" to the nutters).
The repeated mantra that Obama hasn't done anything in the last 20 years. I guess to the wingnuts, nuclear proliferation and government accountability don't count, at least not when it isn't Palin mentioning it.
That Obama was angry and yelling.
Perhaps this will help those of you who have attempted without success to get dedicated lifelong Republicans to recognize the fiasco that their party has become. There is a point of no return in politics where people get so emotionally tied to their position and party that they could think, well, any of the above.
