(TOWNHALL) – The Democratic Party should be living the dream this year – midterm elections always favor the party out of power. Yet they, and their advocates in the media, are doing everything they can to blow it. Don't get me wrong, I love the idea that they'd blow it, but it is weird how they seem more interested in embracing crazy than they are in winning.
Democrats love to accuse Republicans of being the conspiracy theory party, mostly due to a few fringe players the media portrays as conservatives rather than the cranks they really are. Had you ever heard of Orly Taitz before she became the face of birtherism? Probably not because there was no reason to. But you would have thought she was a Chair of the Republican Party by the way this unknown was portrayed by the media. And surely some people listen to Alex Jones, but no one with any influence does. He's a conspiracy theorist yelling into an empty field, but he's covered like he's Rush Limbaugh.
Of less interest to the media is the conspiracy loons on the left who, thanks to shoddy and biased reporting, have spent the last 18 months actually believing Donald Trump conspired with Vladimir Putin to steal the election. Worse, according to a new YouGov/Economist poll believe the Russians actually changed votes to throw the election to Trump.
