A bit of common sense

From Kevin Drum's a big mistake for us liberals to kid ourselves into thinking that Republicans win elections solely because they fool people into voting for them. It's not just that this is a debilitating mental attitude — although it is — but it's also not true. Our main problem isn't that this year's campaign has ignored the issues, our main problem is that the #1 issue in this campaign is national defense, and on that issue — like it or not — the majority of Americans favor the Republican position.
His emphasis.

Some of he most common complaints from those that oppose Bush are that "the issues are not being debated" and "anyone supporting Bush must be being duped". These are really just attempts to explain away why other people have different opinions without acknowledging that other opinions have any validity.
