Here's a dizzyingly fascinating, depressing, yet wonderfully engaging article, that examines what you all have suspected all along. People vote for really stupid reasons. I laughed myself to tears when I got to the part about Woodrow Wilson and the shark attacks. DR;TL ALERT: not for wimpy readers accustomed to AP pap. Suddenly, this whole election makes a lot more sense to me.
While we are on the subject of government stupidity: Could someone please spray a can of STFU on Bernanke? He recently testified in front of the House of Representatives on the subject of why we need a second set of "financial measures." Bernanke must have a different definition of "willingness" than I do. Wells Fargo sure had a funny way of showing its willingness to accept fail-out help. (That wasn't a typo, by the way.)
