In the run up to the 2012 elections I was certain that the Democrats had finally overestimated the stupidity of the American people and finally jumped the Shark.
I was wrong.
Reading the posts on the DU help me understand how and why I have underestimated the stupidity of the American people.
In fact, I am now quite certain that the Democrats have a long way to go before they reach the threshold limits of stupidity and face a backlash.
I have to say, unlike the Republicans, the Democrats really understand their base and they embrace that base fully
That's why they win so many elections.
Republicans will talk about the Constitution and cite some obscure U.S. Federal code, sub-section whatever, line something.
Meanwhile the Democrats simply call them racists and hand out free cell phones.
Guess who's going to win?
A few weeks ago Karl Rove on was Foxnews and was making a comparison between the Federal Debt and the Civil War Battle of Vicksburg. He talked about how the Union Army swept East and then back to the West and laid seige to the city.
I couldn't believe it. 99% of the American public would literally have no idea what he's talking about.
The GOP has to accept the premise that the overwhelming majority of Americans, to include GOP voters, are absolutely stupid children. Then they must adopt appropriate tactics.
