07:29 pm - I might quibble over "new", but otherwise...
"The new wildcard factor in American politics is that we now have a country crawling with raised-in-captivity morons who will believe literally anything you say, if you say it often enough and it conforms to their personal fears and whimsical dullard obsessions."

Definitely agree with your quibble on new... I've read too much history. However, the scale and speed at which one can repeat nonsense to the gullible has gone way up over the years.

Hahah.. I love it! Surely someone's thesis must measure the increase in repetition frequency vs. the hypothetical decrease in message absorption as a result of the increased noise!

I'd love to know the net-gain on moronization.
