8/16/11 Lawrence O’Donnell had been saying for months that Tim Pawlenty would end up winning the GOP nomination because he was only candidate without fatal flaws. O’Donnell was off last night due to the death of his mother but emailed his response to Pawlenty’s sudden departure from the race. “This is the year that the irrational vote is controlling Republican politics,” O’Donnell wrote. “Pawlenty’s problem turned out to be, despite all his right wing pandering, he just wasn’t crazy enough.” The Republican Party, O’Donnell concluded, “has decided to go in an irrational direction and I can’t predict the irrational.”

    The major part of the voting public is irrational (having no scientific literacy, believe in superstition,i.e.religion, etc.)so how can Obama’s re-election be hoped for????

    Editor’s Response: Clearly a major part of the Republican Party holds these irrational views. Fortunately, this doesn’t constitute a majority of Americans. So there’s still hope.
