Skip to comments.How these gibbering numbskulls came to dominate Washington (moonbat alert)

How was it allowed to happen? How did politics in the US come to be dominated by people who make a virtue out of ignorance? Was it charity that has permitted mankind's closest living relative to spend two terms as president? How did Sarah Palin, Dan Quayle and other such gibbering numbskulls get to where they are? How could Republican rallies in 2008 be drowned out by screaming ignoramuses insisting that Barack Obama was a Muslim and a terrorist?
Like most people on my side of the Atlantic, I have for many years been mystified by American politics. The US has the world's best universities and attracts the world's finest minds.

Doesn’t look like most Americans do now either.
What was your roll in this, if you had none you should not offer an apology. If you wish to condeme this statement, then by all means do.
Don't forget to view the Comments section; this open, running sore of an article oozes on there.
he sounds like an original moonbat.
Gyppo pikey wog bastard!
We tend to forget that George Orwell, when he wrote 1984, modeled it on the BBC, of which the Guardian is somewhat of a stepchild.
Mr. Moonbat is accurately summarizing the thoughts of the British elites for our entertainment.
The US is a meritocracy, yours is not.
I never knew that. Very interesting.
Whether we like it or not, we are all representatives, of our nation, of our religion, of our race, of our culture, of our gender. I don’t condone the article at all, but I am a representative of the culture that produced it, and therefore I feel a need to apologise for the attitudes that spawned it, or at least the passive aquiescence by those of us dont rate it at all.
After all, at least a third of the responses to this article are widening their criticism beyond the points raised by the article, are they not?
