  •  This is a good definition (3+ / 0-)
    to be shallow is to assign equal value to everything
    And explains why I use the name Shallows to describe that class of voters that are still undecided the day before an election. The previous six months, their attention was on other things, Brittany Spears and American Idol, LOLcats and FAIL videos, they turn their attention, at the last minute, to tomorrow's election, read a few articles in their favorite political source and go from there. Their interest and grasp have no context, no history, they are operating on surface image and other people's opinions.
    And they make up a significant, sometimes dominant portion of the electorate. They vastly outnumber those of us who follow politics and world events obsessively.

    If I ran this circus, things would be DIFFERENT!
