United Stupids of America

A hilarious column from the Richmond - Times Dispatch:

Us here in Bush Country sorry. We sorry for being so dumb, voting for dumb President Bush. We know we not so smart. But ain't nothing we can do about it. We try hard. Honest injun! Stay up on current events. Watch Fox News and "Entertainment Tonite." Read Weekly World News - and not just stuff about Bat-Boy, neither. But we no match for likes of you in brains department. Heck, we barely just learn to walk upright. Grandparents' knuckles still all red and swole up.

But like we say, it not our fault. Must be something in Americans What Got Disabilities Act about having case of stupids, right?

Besides - you say yourself evil capitalists trick us. Mizz Smiley write in Slate that "architects of this strategy knew perfectly well that they were exploiting, among other unsavory qualities, a long American habit of virulent racism, but they did it anyway, and we see the outcome now - [Dick] Cheney is the capitalist arm and Bush is the religious arm . . . .They are predatory and resentful, amoral, avaricious, and arrogant." Mizz Smiley seem nice. She seem not to have resentful bone in her body.
