    How ironic coming from a member of Congress.

    Indeed. The problem for incumbents now is that people are actually paying attention. I keep repeating, the warnings aren't just for Democrats.

    He has a point and it's more than just over the upcoming election. How many utterly depressing statistics and surveys are done to find people believing silly things? Things like 9/11 being an inside job and a bullcrap link between vaccines and childhood autism. Misinformation is an utter travesty and is the entire reason we have education in the first place.

    'It just continues the Democrats’ theme that the reason people are upset is because they don’t understand. They’re not smart enough. That sort of rhetoric just gets people even more upset,” said Jacobson'

    Yup!

    Just came across this related article, the Democrats should learn that talking down to the electorate just isn't a winning strategy:

    Because we all know that Bernie Goldberg is the go-to person on politics.

    The tea party continues to nominate extremist candidates, eventually the question has to be asked whether the group that are nominating these people are extremists themselves. The numbers have already shown they are for the most part in reality the far right wing base of the GOP.

    Tell me Annie, how accurate is it to say that "separation of church and state" came from Hitler?

    John Kerry has a history of talking down to people. Remember this?:

    So what it seems to amount to is that Kerry is whining, and is stupid.

    OK I can see that.
