Most popular comment on Paul Krugman’s Op-Ed this morning:

I’m beginning to believe that George W Bush was the president the American people deserved. I can’t believe the take away from President Obama’s press conference was his comment about the idiocy in Cambridge. The American people’s brains have been turned to mush. Too much Fox News, American Idol, etc…has rendered people into easily duped dolts. We now have a chance to take a positive step towards fixing our Health Care embarrassment, and the debate is off the charts ridiculous. In a simple nutshell: do you want to keep being screwed by the Corporate Health Insurance Companies, or do you want to move towards fair, moral, universally accessible Health Care. It’s that simple.

Thank you Mark C. from San Francisco.

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.
