piranha: red origami crane (Default)
so i've been wondering just what is wrong with the 33% (or however many it is in the latest polls) who still support bush. how could he possibly convince people who're not convinced by now that he is incompetent to run this country? how low would he have to sink? i mean, i don't expect him to suck the blood from christian babies on national television, so it's gotta be something realistic. and it's not like bush is the only case where even at their lowest, the person still had considerable support (i count 20% as considerable). some of the comments in james' LJ are also interesting, regarding people getting elected about whom the voters know almost nothing.

turns out i am of course not the only person pondering that. others have done so.

i don't really agree with some of the conclusions. batshit crazy? i don't think so. really stupid, now, that i could believe. i mean, not just ignorant, but stupid, not possessed of sufficient critical thinking skills to actually know what they're voting for. which is a more hopeful thing to believe, since lots of stupid people could still be taught, if one cared to do so (which the public education system in the US isn't up for).
