    setting the post-election stage for why they were beaten so badly. It'll be two things:

    1. Romney wasn't a "real" conservative and therefore GOP ideas didn't get a fair hearing, which is why he was so unpopular.
    2. Romney was actually ahead in the polls and it was those damn dirty ACORNs and their liberal media accomplices that stole the election for the secret Muslim, so we're justified in falling back on our "2nd amendment remedies".

    And though these two beliefs are clearly mutually exclusive, they'll never worry about reconciling their simultaneous belief in both.
