by Blue Stockings | It's much more like they think the public is really ignorant---or rather the part constituting their base.
Obama was talking about the tire gauge kerfuffle, but he could be describing the entire far right wing of the GOP. As skippy puts it,
"they not only take pride in being ignorant, they take pride in preaching ignorance."
As usual they're picking on one miniscule point and basing a whole attack on it. They know their base better than I do, of course. Maybe that sort of thing works with Republicans. It worked with Michelle Malkin. These are people who don't have any tools but blunt ones to work with. Or rather, they don't need any tools but blunt ones to work with. You don't have to be subtle when you're dispensing ignorance.
