  •  The American electorate baffles me (0+ / 0-)

    So we have a state which is solidly ahead for the sitting democratic president vs their former GOP governor, yet their romneyesque GOP senator is neck and neck with a candidiate with real gravitas like Warren who has been nominated for a position in said incumbent democratic president's administration. Am I missing something?

    •  Well, just think of how dumb the average* (0+ / 0-)

      American is and remember that half of the country is even more dumb that that.

      *If you are here, then by definition you are smarter than the average American.

      There is no saving throw against stupid.

      •  Yeah, but it's more than that (0+ / 0-)

        There's no internal consistency in the voting patterns. If polling is correct, does it make any sense that a fair number seem to want to vote for Brown AND Obama? It's not just dumb, it's irrational.

        •  That's because people aren't rational, they are (0+ / 0-)

          emotional.  That is why liberals have so many problems, we try to use rational arguments to argue our case but they are being "short circuited" by the emotion based right wing advertising.  Do you know how advertising is tested?  Believe it or not they actually hook people up to MRI machines to make sure the ads are pushing the right emotional buttons (it's called neuromarketing)
