RE: Do we really want un-informed citizens to vote?

I don't know anyone of any political persuasion who is so blind as as to call all republican candidates stupid. I think Bush is stupid, but I never thought Nixon, Ford, Bush I, or Reagan were. Maybe you are over-reacting?
Your memory must not be as long as mine, or maybe you are more even-handed in your assesment of the former presidents than most liberal elitists. The democrats called Truman stupid. They called Eisenhower stupid. They called Nixon--not stupid; just EVIL. Ford was mocked and called stupid. Reagan was always called stupid.( in fact, recent democrat talking points have been to deny that Reagan had anything to do with winning the cold war, and intimating that his Alzheimers was affecting his decisions while president) And the senior Bush was called stupid. In fact, they still call all these former presidents stupid.
No, most certainly I do not think I am over reacting. It is part of the liberal playbook. Its part of the elitism appeal that (most) liberal have that they are superior in all ways, but especially intellectually. Its really hard for them to accept that intelligent people can honestly disagree with them.
