A few aphorisms spring to mind. H L Mencken said: "Nobody ever went broke UNDERestimating the intelligence of the American public." The man-in-the-street interviews by Fox Bews, Jay Leno and others proved that the majority of American voters know nothing and care less about domestic or, especially, foreign policy. Mention the onrushing economic disaster, and the interviewers got blank stares. Joblessness? Half of them said it was - after nearly four years - Bush's fault. The blacks voted for Obama (94%) because of the color of his skin. Latinos because they believe he will lift all restrictions on illegal aliens (probably right, amnesty here we come.) The young because he's - like, you know - cool.
