Straight from the horse's mouth

There has been a suspicion among certain people that the Right has let slip the constricting bonds of reality, and sprung untethered into the world of fantasy. This started with the Laffer curve and back-of-the-napkin economics, grew stronger in light of the Bush party flack who said empires "create their own reality," and now has been revealed in plain, simple language by the Romneyites:
"We're not going to let our campaign be dictated by fact-checkers," said Neil Newhouse, a Romney pollster.
And here's a perfect example:

Coal miners lost pay for mandatory appearance at Romney photo-op

What more perfect illustration could you ask for? In the Romney world, working-class people are props that not only can be bossed around without compunction, but also without pay.

These aristocrats really think that white, working-class people are so afraid of losing your status and sinking to the level of poor coloreds that they'll vote for them no matter how they act. It would laughable... if it weren't working so well.
