Well Played, Barack
It's not so much that "they" take pride in being ignorant-- it's that the Republican playbook puts so much stock in the ignorance of the body politic. I can't come to a different conclusion when their latest campaign tactics consist of comparing Barack Obama to Paris Hilton and Britney Spears in an advertisment, and handing out tire pressure gauges with "Obama's energy plan" written on them.
They count on us being uninformed. They hope that we don't know any better.
