Graham, a former-stand-up comic turned GOP political consultant reveals what people inside the election business have known for years: In the America of the year 2001, ignorant voters arent a problem, theyre a target demographic. They were the foundation and the demise of the ill-fated Gore campaign, and continuing efforts by both political parties to court rather than shun them put American democracy at risk.

My favorite political postlude was recorded in The New York Times, the day after Goldwater's overwhelming defeat by President Johnson. An elderly lady was back from the polls and asked her neighbor, who had gone out earlier, whether she had cast her eleventh consecutive vote for a Republican candidate. No, she replied. She had voted for Lyndon Johnson, because she had been "afraid" to vote for Goldwater.
"Why?" was the startled question.
"Because he will take away my TV."
The questioner laughed. "No, no, no, Edith. Senator Goldwater is opposed to the T.V.A., not TV."
"I know, I know. But I just didn't want to take any chances." —As recounted by William F. Buckley, Jr.

We are the sons and daughters of the American revolution. We are the descendants of Washington, Jefferson, Madison, and, later, of Thurgood Marshall and Martin Luther King Jr. We are the promise keepers of the greatest, most ambitious experiment in individual liberty ever conceived, an experiment nurtured on blood, upheld by laws, and envied around the world.
We are the American people. And we are as dumb as a box of rocks.
Just months into the new century (yep, we even got that wrong), any serious analysis of contemporary America leads to the inescapable conclusion that, while our parents and grandparents may have been the "Greatest Generation," ours is the dumbest.
