Liberals are deranged, I’ll give you that.
But I’m thinking of “borderline liberals”, people I know (not in the media, they are all deranged, of course), who do have the capacity to be swayed by arguments one way or another.
The people I’m thinking about DID react differently to 2010 than they did to 2000. Much differently. The size of the conservative vote DID make them have second thoughts about their 2000-based ideas that only Democrats can win elections legitimately and that Republicans only win when the court hands them the win.
Yes. It makes a difference. It makes a very big difference. There are real people out there. Please don’t base all your thoughts on the media.
