Dumber and Dumbest

The economy grew at a 5% annual growth rate, a rate not seen in years. ISIL is in retreat. Gas approaches $2.00 per gallon. It is morning in America. Yet the Republicans sweep the Senate races and gain seats in the house. Gerrymandering did not do it all.

More people think trust the Republicans to do a better job with the economy than the Democrats, yet, a Republican president brought us the Great Recession and a Democratic administration brought the US out of it.

Racism does not explain it all. I can explain this, I think, by the low information levels of most voters, both Republican and Democrat. I have generally seen most Americans as greatly misinformed people. Aside from their jobs, their favorite sport(s) teams, and a hobby or two, they are generally clueless about the country and the world.

Dumber and Dumbest.

* The title of this blog, Fish the Swamp comes from the Ernest Hemingway short stories, The Big-Hearted Rivers, part I and II. If you don't know how the title relates to the Hemingway story, read them.
