Posting a Diary Entry

Daily Kos welcomes blog articles from readers, known as diaries. The Intro section to a diary should be about three paragraphs long, and is required. The body section is optional, as is the poll, which can have 1 to 15 choices. Descriptive tags are also required to help others find your diary by subject; please don't use "cute" tags.

When you're ready, scroll down below the tags and click Save & Preview. You can edit your diary after it's published by clicking Edit Diary. Polls cannot be edited once they are published.

If this is your first time creating a Diary since the Ajax upgrade, before you enter any text below, please press Ctrl-F5 and then hold down the Shift Key and press your browser's Reload button to refresh its cache with the new script files.

ATTENTION: READ THE RULES.

  1. One diary daily maximum.
  2. Substantive diaries only. If you don't have at least three solid, original paragraphs, you should probably post a comment in an Open Thread.
  3. No repetitive diaries. Take a moment to ensure your topic hasn't been blogged (you can search for Stories and Diaries that already cover this topic), though fresh original analysis is always welcome.
  4. Use the "Body" textbox if your diary entry is longer than three paragraphs.
  5. Any images in your posts must be hosted by an approved image hosting service (one of: imageshack.us, photobucket.com, flickr.com, smugmug.com, allyoucanupload.com, picturetrail.com, mac.com, webshots.com, editgrid.com).
  6. Copying and pasting entire copyrighted works is prohibited. If you do quote something, keep it brief, always provide a link to the original source, and use the <blockquote> tags to clearly identify the quoted material. Violating this rule is grounds for immediate banning.
  7. Be civil. Do not "call out" other users by name in diary titles. Do not use profanity in diary titles. Don't write diaries whose main purpose is to deliberately inflame.

Please begin with an informative title:

Yes, there is a demograhics map that Republicans weren't paying attention to.
Yes, there is grassroot movement that Republicans ignored completely
Yes, there is pseudo-psephology movement that Republicans started to believe in.
Yes, there are people on the republican party who think it is fun to talk about rape
Yes, there is Mitt Romney - the representation of 0.01% and their world

But these weren't the reason GOP lost the Presidential race.

Intro

You must enter an Intro for your Diary Entry between 300 and 1150 characters long (that's approximately 50-175 words without any html or formatting markup).

The real reason why GOP lost the Presidential race is that they live in a parallel world created for them by Fox News, Karl Rove, WSJ, Drudge Report and Free Republic.

GOP wasn't fighting moderate, auto industry saving, great-depression avoiding, healthcare reforming, lean-left to center-right leaning POTUS OBAMA

GOP was fighting communist, closet-islamist, kenyan born, magically-all-debt-creating, failed-stimulus, defense-cutting, freedom & rights snatching BOGEYMAN OBAMA*

(* - This version of Obama doesn't exists!)

The main reason why GOP lost in 2012 and will lose in 2016 is that they created a mirror universe for themselves in Fox News and pals and it caters to the fears of Tea Party and right-wingers. The moderate and the rest of the nation has shut out everything that comes with this parallel universe

Bill Maher said it the best: Republicans have created this fictional version of Obama.

Unless, the Republicans destroy this parallel universe and start dealing with facts, there isn't much hope for them
