While I won’t link to any of them, I pretty much pinpointed my problem with watching the Bachmanns and Palins and what have you.
We’re at a point where policy difference isn’t our issue. I can deal with that. Instead, it’s that we’re up against people who are willfully ignorant, celebrate the fact, and supported by throngs of people who similarly rejoice in their general lack of understanding of even basic things. Anti-intellectuals who snort at “eggheads” like Obama and seem to interpret ignorance as proof of “character”.
Why does 2012 worry me? The movie Idiocracy.
