Look: I am eager to learn stuff I don't know--which requires actively courting and posting smart disagreement.

But as you will understand, I don't like to post things that mischaracterize and are aimed to mislead.

Illiterate Clown Politics

The only thing I can say about this is that at least Christine O'Donnell can read.

We aren't the only only ones who are screwed, I guess.

Update:  It turns out she's not even descended from a real Bozo.  He was only a fill-in Bozo.

So -- are we screwed, or what?

We'd probably be better off if she couldn't.

This all reminds me of SciFi story I read many years ago. The political system teetered on the point of collapse until someone came up the idea with running someone who was extraordinarily average. So, Joe Abnego was selected on the basis of his amazing statistical averageness. He was wildly popular and won the election.

The next election after that was won by a super-intelligent dog, hence the end of the reign of Homo sapiens sapiens. A sad little fable for our times.
