  •  Why do you think Bush the Lesser won? (16+ / 0-)

    Or, more accurately, came close enough to winning to be able to steal it? A whole bunch of profoundly stupid men (and, sadly, women) voted for him because he seemed just as stupid and thus non-threatening as them. They hated Gore because he was smart, and voted for the stupid guy because it just felt right.

    Same thing with Reagan. A lot of stupid people vote for the stupider candidate (lousy B movie actor bs. nuclear engineer, tough choice there), which has long been one of the weaknesses of democracy: stupid people vote.

    Is the country getting smarter, or are Dems just getting better at winning over stupid people? Dunno. But we clearly dodged a bullet with McNasty/Puddinhead.
