Being Stupid is No Longer Cool

There was a poll released yesterday that showed that seventy some percent of that little puddle of what remains of the Republican party still supports Palin. Well of course they do. Mika, of “Morning Joe” says that these Palin supporters are “real Americans”. I don’t know what that makes you and I, but I do know that Palin has some of the same traits that bush exhibited and they, “real Americans” crave that.

During bush’s time in office he played to the folksy down home, let’s face it, the less than intelligent cretin. He made being less than intelligent cool. Who wanted to be an “elite” educated American when you had proof that a man who was not curious about anything, often couldn’t form sentences and struggled with the English language daily, could rise to be President? He was an example of them.

Now we have a President who is just the opposite of bush in his manner, speech and approach to problems. Damn it, he’s all educated and smart and all. So the right wingers are pissed. They feel they are no longer represented in the Oval Office. Where’s the ignorance that they can identify with? Where is the person who speaks as they do? Where’s the guy who gives them permission to be less than educated and makes it cool? Where’s Palin? She could easily speak for them again, even if no one had a clue to what she was talking about. She could change everything back to the way it was for eight years.

Things have changed for them, the real American, because today being stupid is back to what it used to be, being stupid.

That's probably pretty close to the truth PoP. It just really irks die hard branch of the GOP that a really smart guy is in charge and that he is a Democrat and black to boot. They know deep in their black hearts that Bush as a buffoon and that their support of him makes them buffoons as well. They just refuse to accept it and want to go back to having a buffoon in charge.

And it's such hypocrisy too--the republicans in power are nowhere near ANYTHING like these uneducated poor cretins of Amurka. They're rich, educated assholes who look down on the uneducated poor, exploiting their ignorance and stealing right out of their pockets, even as they say, "we're just like you, because we hate abortion! we hate taxes!"

Hypocritical assholes, all of them. And the uneducated just eat it up.

I see the lie-bruls still subscribe to stupidism. Not very inclusive, are you!

I've been trying, all day, to come up with some sort of cogent or semi-lucid comment for this particular entry but I'm falling short. I think I'm with you on this one, PoP, but my sense of the nation's smart fellers failings go far deeper than just the righty/fundy/good-ol-boy fellers what reckon they kinda like the boy 'cause he's like me so I'ma votin' fer him... YYEEEEHAAAA!!!!!.... Git 'er DONE!!!!

See? You see what 8 years of playing Dodge Ball with these f-ers has done to me?
I've never claimed intellectual superiority over anyone... I just allude to it. It's the moral thing to do.

I think the "dumbing down" has been one of the most egregious, insidious things the conservatives have done to this country. The whole mindset that "stupid is chic" allowed us to get drawn into vanity wars and the banking industry to steal us blind.

Thing is, it still goes on. The governor of Texas just appointed a serious Jesus freak to head the state's public schools so you can imagine what a generation of kids there will be like by the time they grow up.

our new president even knows how to pronounce 'nuclear'. it's a small thing, I know, but my mom was an English teacher and 'nucular' grated on my ear -- let alone the fact that my sense was he really, really wanted to push that button.

and-- to Fixer -- Kansas tried that. 2 years later, when their kids couldn't get into any college outside of Kansas, the parents booted the school board that had passed 'creationism only' out onto the curb.
Texas may wake up when the same thing happens there.
