    Referring to their tactics.

    They play their entire game so well inside their safe "crazy bubble" that they are shocked by their miscalculations.  That's why their whole "America wants this" bullshit falls on its face.  They have been so busy making fun of and ignoring the majority of Americans that they don't even realize who they are really fighting.  

    They aren't fighting the idiots inside their own echo chamber or the make-believe boogie men they build up as the enemy inside their echo chamber.  They are fighting the real Americans they don't represent, know or truly understand. They don't have this same challenge at local levels (thanks to gerrymandering) so it surprises them that they face such a fight and lose.

    Frankly this kind of national level fight really serves to galvanize the "minority" liberal voices that are trapped hopelessly inside their safe home districts.  Few things bring us as much satisfaction as having the real America wallop their arrogant clueless asses.  So yeah that quote works.
