How does one rationalize the cognitive dissonance between, “Osama bin Laden is dead” with “but a pinko Muslin-loving wimpy liberal extremist Democrat gave the go order”?

Hey, let them have their fun, I say. The more of the Republican base that lives in this bizarre world of self-aggrandizing counterfactuals, the easier the re-elect will be. But how much easier can it get, now that national security and the right’s go-to culture war meme, “liberals coddle terrorists,” are both so conclusively off the table?
