The Republican War on Math Continues

All of the pollsters are conspiring to win the election for the president.

Erickson, Editor-in-Chief of RedState.com and CNN political contributor, accuses the media of a “confirmation bias” that makes them conform their data to what they want: “The polls are confirming what the press thinks and that they have a larger than 2008 Democratic turnout is of no consequence to them.”

Hugh Hewitt, Sean Hannity, Rush Limbaugh and the rest of the usual suspects insist that it's not about Romney's trainwreck, but a conspiracy based on liberal math.

    Of course–this is an all-to-common tactic. When they have no argument left, they default to some conspiracy theory. Kind of like Ron Paul-ites defaulting to “But…but…liberty!” when they reach the end of the line.

    Rush, Hannity, Erickson, et al, are still trying the say-it-enough-times-and-it-will-come-true tactic of propaganda. Confirmation bias, indeed…

    You have to love the irony of Erickson’s blatant display of confirmation bias as he decries confirmation bias.

    Give up, Erick Cartman. You’ve already gone on record saying Mitt Romney lost the election all by himself.
