Elegimos políticos cada vez más idiotas

De la serie Idiocracia

¿Por qué en EE.UU. la política está dominada por gente que hace de la ignorancia una virtud? ¿Por qué la gente cada vez es más ignorante y se regodea de ello?

How these gibbering numbskulls came to dominate Washington por George Monbiot. (Artículo en inglés)

How was it allowed to happen? How did politics in the US come to be dominated by people who make a virtue out of ignorance? Was it charity that has permitted mankind's closest living relative to spend two terms as president? How did Sarah Palin, Dan Quayle and other such gibbering numbskulls get to where they are?

It wasn't always like this. The founding fathers of the republic - Benjamin Franklin, Thomas Jefferson, James Madison, John Adams, Alexander Hamilton and others - were among the greatest thinkers of their age. They felt no need to make a secret of it. How did the project they launched degenerate into George W Bush and Sarah Palin?
