    Propaganda has sometimes been classified as "white," "black" or "gray." White propaganda generally comes from an openly identified source and is not intentionally deceptive. Black propaganda pretends to be from a friendly source, but is actually from an adversary and is intended to deceive its audience. Gray propaganda falls somewhere between white and black.

    Q. Why are most of the political ads 'black'?
    A. Because they work.

    Q. Why?
    A. Simple. Most Americans are too disinterested, or incapable of engaging in critical thought.

    Learn what "disinterested" means and then come back and post.

    I think lazy might be a more appropriate word than disinterested. There are plenty of interested--or at least moderately attentive--people who just don't bother to make the effort to collect information.

    The "you voters are too stupid" message seems to be a winner for lefties.

    Unfortunately collecting information isn't enough. Having a knowledge base to weigh it against is necessary. That can't be done by reading Wiki for 2 minutes.

    They're certainly getting a lot of mileage out of it.

    It'll take some of the sting out of losing big in the next two elections.
