Denying Reality Is Bipartisan

Democrats complain that Republicans don’t live in the reality based world on issues like climate science, vaccines and economics. But they engage a lot in magical thinking as well. In the run up to the 2022 midterm elections in particular, the dream of things that they have to know will and can never happen.

  • Add one piece of magic: “We’ll defend the sovereignty of Ukraine (said sovereignty having been installed by us in the 2014 coup of the glorious St. Obumma/Biden administration)!”

    Remember that scene in”Game of Thrones” where Littlefinger tries to mansplain power to Cersei? She orders her four guards to spin around like tops before telling him, “That’s power.”
    The Republicans will, once again, show the democrats what power is. The show starts Jan. 20, 2023. At about 30 seconds after the new Congress is sworn in.

  • What is that thing that he’s holding supposed to be, though?

      I think it’s a magic wand. At first, I thought it was a hallucinogenic-filled version of one of those Wild Kingdom tranquilizer darts that Jim would always use before Marlon would calmly narrate from the safety of the office: “And now Jim will attempt to carry the sedated cheetah to safety.” The democrats are clearly getting access to some prime-grade stuff.

  • Extra panels…and even with our flaws and weak campaigns the Republicans will never win enough seats to undo the laws we pass. If somehow the scarry Republicans gain too many seats and things look grim we will throw a bucket of water on them, and they will melt away. Everyone will thank us for bringing back the sunny blue skies, as they sing and dance on the yellow brick road.
