    ...is the people who can't be bothered to pay attention to politics because it's somehow distasteful. Being a rabid sports fan for your team is okay - but following your state and local reps?

    Not that it's easy. Most newspapers (that are still around) put a lot more resources into covering sports than they do state or local politics. Ditto for local TV news operations. When was the last time you saw a weekly highlight reel from the state legislature, or excitement about upcoming big bills?

    Of course, the kind of thuggery being practiced here, and the tea bagger nuts and Limbaugh ditto heads turn ordinary people off when it comes to politics - which is just the way they want it.

    "No special skill, no standard attitude, no technology, and no organization - no matter how valuable - can safely replace thought itself."
