That's the only natural conclusion to this poll result:
The new national poll from Public Policy Polling (D) has an astonishing number about paranoia among the GOP base: Republicans do not think President Obama actually won the 2008 election -- instead, ACORN stole it.
In order to believe that Obama wasn't the true winner of the 2008 election, one would have to think that ACORN (and perhaps other groups) stuffed ballots to the tune of over 9.5 million votes, Obama's national margin....
That's right. An organiztion these dipshits hadn't heard of three years ago stole almost TEN MILLION VOTES.
This is the difference between normal human beings and wingnuts: Normal human beings oppose things, people, policies, and they tell you why, or at least their interpretation of why. Liberals haaaaaated George W. Bush and Dick Cheney. But we didn't shit our pants in fear every time we saw him on television. No, that's what wingnuts do. As Steve M. points out, wingnuts "ascribe superpowers to people they don't like." For them, no one is simply an opponent to be beaten. No, instead every opponent is a threat to their fragile way of life, an excuse to cry out in sheer terror, the boogeyman times Satan times Hitler times Mao, squared.
What sniveling pussies.
This brings to mind the study which showed that whiny, attention-starved, paranoid children grow up to be conservatives, while confident kids grow up to be liberals. It really does make sense.
