4. Why thank you! This is exactly what I was hoping for!

I'm very impressed!

Time for a little cross posting! Great graph. Great work as usual, from Rachel Maddow and her amazing team - real, live investigative reporters.

Thanks again!

5. Yes (edited)

The answer to her question about why Americans don't get it is because most Americans are morons!

OK...not morons.

I'm reminded of the scene from "Men In Black" when Tommy Lee Jones and Will Smith are sitting on the bench and Smith says something to the effect "But people are smart". And Jones says "A PERSON is smart. People are dumb, panicky, dangerous animals and you know it!"




THAT'S how I feel about this election. Americans have the political memories of a planarian.


Edit: I tried to link to the relevant vid from YouTube but it wouldn't embed for some reason.

Here's the relevant search on Youtube and the vid is the first result:

10. Correct. They are brilliant in this art- and that's how they win.

They coin phrases like "Pro-Life" and "tax and spend liberals'-- and they stay focused on whatever the lie is that they want people to believe and they feed it to Fox who feeds it to their enormous audience. But I truly believed- still do- that the Obama team is smarter then they are. They beat the Clinton machine- they are brilliant.

I just worry that even their brilliance is not enough to combat the unlimited funds thanks to Citizens United.

11. In a way, I was hearing her say 'more arithmetic, less math'...

don't get bogged down in the numbers, make it simpler to understand and then people will be more likely to 'get' it.
