  •   Personally, I don't like Bill Maher (0+ / 0-)

    But I agree with him on this. Just the fact that people actually voted for Sarah to be a heartbeat away from the presidency proves that they are lacking some sort of smarts.

    Benjamin Franklin said it best:

    "We are all born ignorant, but one must work hard to remain stupid."

    I know someone in that strong Conservative base. She home schools her children because she doesn't want them exposed to anti-christian teachings, such as evolution. But she is also limiting their choices in literature so that by the time they reach adulthood, their view of the world will be very narrow. And thus should guarantee the continuation of stupidity.
