It's The Stupidity, Stupid

The United States is being held hostage by 23% of its voters who are the stupidest people on the face of the earth. Twenty-three percent of the voters in the last election voted for George W. Bush because they believed he is a born-again Christian, against abortion, anti-gay, and ignorant. All of which or none of which may be true. George W. Bush will be whatever the GOP needs him to be. It is impossible to know what his religious beliefs (if he has any) may be. What we do know is that he has horrendous mental problems. Other than that, George W. Bush is an empty suit, a vessel willing to be filled, a hollow space. Seventy-seven percent of the people who voted for George W. Bush did so for reasons other than that he is an ignorant, born-again pro-lifer. But the big question is: Why has the entire Republican Party taken up the cause of a minority who are as dumb as a bag of rocks? More to the point, why is it working in favor of the GOP to promote an uninformed, uneducated, and unintelligent agenda when only 23% of the voters are terminally stupid? And why aren't the majority of Republicans who are intelligent and have the ability to understand and think clearly not offended by the direction the party has taken? Answer to question 1: Stupidity is not working in the GOP favor. Answer to question 2: The majority of Republicans are very offended by the GOP leadership. No matter how Tom DeLay and William Frist shake and dance, the majority of Americans do not want the filibuster rules to change in Congress, they want stem cell research to be funded by the federal government, they don't believe Roe v Wade should be overturned, they think the war in Iraq is and always has been a criminal enterprise, they believe soldiers torturing other human beings is immoral, they think the proposed Social Security changes are nonsense and they think Terri Schiavo was braindead and that her husband had the right to pull the plug. The GOP's Agenda for Imbeciles can only be defended by the imbeciles who proposed it and a minority of people who are functionally illiterate. So far, the GOP has been able to use strong-arm tactics, fear, and the cowardice of the MSM to advance its assault on intelligence. But the worm already has turned. You can't keep rich, smart, college-educated, informed and powerful folks down forever.
