Stupidity = Authority

Wow… Great Survivor tonight in terms of “Dumbest Survivor Ever”! I sure have enjoyed the hilarity this season. I like the casting department’s decision of choosing the dumbest people they can, although with just enough bright players to manipulate the scene…

Anyway, on the subject of dumbness, there’s been a continual trend in the Hillary campaign comments that bugs me. Quoting from a recent article, she said (emphasis mine),

“I have a much broader base to build a winning coalition on,” she said in an interview with USA TODAY. As evidence, Clinton cited an Associated Press article “that found how Sen. Obama’s support among working, hard-working Americans, white Americans, is weakening again, and how whites in both states who had not completed college were supporting me.”

To me saying “people vote for me, unless they’re educated” isn’t very convincing. The fact that the better educated and the better informed someone is, the more likely they are to vote for Obama should be kind of telling… But because the US has really enshrined this concept of the righteousness of the “average” American over the “elite”, people’s credibility actually goes down if they’re better educated, more intelligent, or better informed. It’s quite shocking if you look at it objectively…

And I won’t get started on how shocking it is that “average people” seem to buy the idea that Hillary, a pandering millionaire-many-times-over, one of the neo-con aristocracy with no understanding or empathy of how the average American lives, is “one of them”, but buy the notion that Obama, raised by a single mother in relative poverty, is not… Meh… I’m glad McCain doesn’t seem interested in a McCain-Clinton ticket, because if anything were to kill off America and complete it’s descent into a bankrupt fascist state, that would be a good way to do it.

    Unfortunately, here in the land of the auto worker, parents dropped out of junior high to go work in the plant, and they made more money than the engineers designing those cars. Now, they’re getting laid off and there haven’t been more than a handful of new hires in years, but they’re still telling their kids not to waste their time or money on things like college, or even finishing high school.

    Until the parents care about education, will the kids ever care about it?

    I love how Clinton has convinced everybody that she is the working class hero and Obama, who was raised by a single-mom on food stamps is “elite”

    Shannon was making me think of what I was doing when I was 19.
    I think of that some whenever I watch any politician talk. What motivates someone to whore themselves out like that.
    Power. Some people are drawn to it like a moth to light and others scurry like cockroaches.
