Obama just can’t fathom why people oppose his policies.  They can’t be thinking people.  They must be stupid and scared:

“Part of the reason that our politics seems so tough right now, and facts and science and argument do not seem to be winning the day all the time, is because we’re...

You may have noticed that things were a bit slow here this week.

Because any debate moderated by the MSM is going to be a game of gotcha directed at the Republican candidate.  I just can’t stand to watch these things anymore.

And so it appears I was right.  Jim Geraghty, who was no Christine O’Donnell fan during the primaries and immediate aftermath, puts it...
