    ...uninformed electorate is more likely the case.  Few understand economics, political systems, world politics or their phone bill so they will believe the bullshit du jure even if it's a different flavor than last week.

      By stupid I didn't mean unintelligent, but ignorant, lazy, apathetic, detached and clueless--i.e. choosing to make minimal use of one's given intelligence outside one's areas of interest and need (and even then not necessarily).

      Intelligence is something you're mostly born with, while stupid is something you decide to be and remain. I let no one off the hook for being stupid. It is a choice, and if you choose to make it, you deserve to be ridiculed.

      And a country tends to get the leaders it deserves.

      Stupid has consequences.

      smell as foul.  Oops, or is that a rose by any other name would smell as sweet?  I can't ever remember which is correct.  ;P
