5. Dumbing Down The Electorate...

Mike Malloy has hit on this topic for nearly 20 years...the rushpublican game was always to create a smaller and smaller electorate. It was to make politics so toxic that a majority of people would tune out...rather watch sports or American Idol than deal with politics. The less who were interested and involved the easier it was to win elections. They started on the school boards and county commissions...taking advantage of electoral apathy along with creating their own "media" to ramp up hate and anger...and to blame Democrats for the apathy they created. Yesterday the electorate they hoped to numb and alienate showed up and said "enough"! Problem is the rushpublicans have already thrown Willard under the bus and screaming how they weren't "conservative" enough. Guess we'll have to make sure to kick their asses again in '14...
