Political Don Quixotes
And, while we're on the subject, here's another example of someone who's too far removed from reality, that being Israel Labor party member Collette Avital. As Cosmic X says:
It is interesting because it demonstrates the total disengagement from reality and the inability to carry on a rational discussion that characterizes many Israeli leftists. Colette, read my lips: The Oslo Agreements were an act of insanity and stupidity, and you and your friends are responsible for it.And then, there's Mary Mapes, who's unwilling to come to terms with Dan Rather's own wrongdoing, and I'm sure wouldn't be willing to admit that Peter Jennings and Tom Brokaw were just as bad. (Via Michelle Malkin.) If people like that are afraid or unwilling to come to terms with reality, then they shouldn't be wasting their time in the political/media world, period. They could relieve themselves of a lot of stress that way.
And the first two of the three examples given here would be advised to take a good look at what the author of Don Quixote, Cervantes, who had been a prisoner and a slave of Arab pirates in his time, had to say:
"Trust no Moors [Muslims], they are all deceitful." -- CervantesOthers on the subject include Sensible Mom, Donkey Stomp, Stuck on Stupid, Newsbusters, Conservativity, Gina Cobb, Myopic Zeal.
