Usually I refrain from name calling, but would it be okay to call Bill Maher stupid? He writes a piece describing the stupidity of Americans, saying this is the reason they should sit down and shut up (I’m barely paraphrasing there) on health care.
Yes, Bill, it’s true that some folks are uneducated, or that the public by and large on certain issues just isn’t well informed at all. Absolutely true. And that’s in part why we have representative government.
But these folks you are bashing for not knowing who America fought in the Revolutionary War, or thinking the sun revolves around the earth….do you think they’re the ones protesting Obama’s health care plans?
I doubt it. But nice try. No, Bill, these folks you talk about in your column are probably your people, in all likelihood. They’re the type of people who would believe, for instance, that your show Politically Incorrect…..was actually politically incorrect, instead of a pantheon to all things PC.
The folks protesting at town hall events in many cases seem to know more than their elected officials about health care legislation being considered. The lawmakers are the ones who haven’t even read they bill. So who are you calling stupid?
