Leftists, liberals, and progressives attempt to re-define reality

denialWhat a drag it is to be a lefty/liberal/progressive and to have to live in the real world. In fact, this conflict of worldview with reality can lead to a massive case of cognitive dissonance, or more likely, denial.

You have David Axelrod, Obama’s handler, who denies the polls.

You have pro forma Obama supporters who put on their brave Barack face while knowing they’re living a lie.

You have typing heads that are begging for the 2008 Obama voters to show up in 2012 because if they fail to do so, the Third Reich is right around the corner. (And if not the Third Reich, then Robert Reich.)

You have an influential mainstream media source that fails to accept economic principles at the elementary-school level.

Things that can’t continue forever—like denying reality—don’t.

Two recurring themes come to mind: 1) George Orwell was a prophet and 2) man remains the only creature capable of lying to himself.

About Professor Mockumental

I enjoy almost all forms of parody, buffoonery, and general high-jinks. Satire has shown itself to be an essential societal need; I therefore humbly offer my services in such a manner. I enjoy mocking the usual suspects at the New York Times (Charles Blows, Moron Dowd, and the earth is flat guy) and Washington Post (Dana Milkbag, E.D. Dijon, and David Ignoramus). There are many others as well, but sadly, there are always too many targets and too little time.
