Vodpod videos no longer available.
Now Blumenthal’s explanation is controversial (to say the least), but one of the things that has mystified progressives since the mid 90’s with the Bubbaloonies (Clinton haters)is the reality disconnect of conservatives. The ability to believe in things that are absolutely, absurdly, and patently untrue when they incorporate elements of scandal or foible aimed at “Liberals”. Birthers, Deathers et al. The ability to see an issue when the plainly available facts contradict it.
Ergo – what makes conservatives so different from normal people?
