Dimwittedness On The March

Bob Herbert has nailed it again. Yes, it does look like dimwittedness is on the march in America. “For those who haven’t noticed, we’re electing a president and vice president, not selecting a winner on “American Idol.””. And here’s Herbert’s last sentence: “The likes of John McCain and George W. Bush can do the craziest, most irresponsible things imaginable, and it only seems to help them politically.”

Does this show that more than half the American people are basically racist simpletons ready to follow demagogues at the drop of a hat? I’m afraid the answer is Yes.
