I'm thinkin' "stupid" is accurate. Might add in a large measure of "lazy". The information needed to make an informed decision is available. It simply requires some time and effort to acquire and evaluate. That goes for too many of the people holding elected office, as well. Remember that classic pic of representatives playing solitaire on their laptops while the house was in session? The scandals involving SEC employees viewing and downloading porn on govt computers, while Wall Street crashed? Irresponsible Idiots!
