It's an old an often-repeated adage that the definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different result. As such it becomes fully understandable if we were to see the American left and the news media reaching the final stages of a psychosis.
We can recall one Dan Rather of CBS News who invented a narrative concerning George W Bush, that when exposed as false, put forth the claim that the forged document was "false but true". We also recall that Mr. Rather was left without a job and on the outside looking in.
For months the media and establishment elites of both parties all said with absolute certainty that Donald Trump had no chance in the primaries against the vaunted Bush machine or up-and-comers like Marco Rubio and Ted Cruz. When that great vision failed their hopes and dreams fell back to a narrative of calling for a brokered convention and a dark horse Mitt Romney riding in to save the day for the establishment pols and media.
Unable as they were to except or even comprehend this new reality, this paradigm shift, they instead doubled down on their insistence that they and only they could possibly know or communicate the direction the nation needed to move. And that direction of course was Hillary Clinton. Hillary the qualified, Hillary the inevitable, Hillary the exalted, mellenial destiny of America was constantly juxtaposed against Donald the incompetent, Donald the dangerous, Donald the incomprehensible, Donald the mad.
