Admittedly, I’m not a huge fan of Bill Maher. My opposition to religion arises from my dedication to reason as the arbiter of truth, and Maher has a number of opinions that take an epic two-flush monster shit all over reason’s kitchen before laughing their way out of the house (alternative medicine, anyone?).
That being said, Maher sure nailed this one.
My favorite part was this bit.
And that, in a nutshell, is America’s celebrated, undecided voter: put on a pedestal by the media as if they were Hamlet in a think-tank, searching out every last bit of information, high-minded arbiters pouring over policy positions and matching them against their own philosophies. Please, they mostly fall into a category political scientists call ‘low information voters,’ otherwise known as dipshits.
He’s right when he says that a number of studies have confirmed that swing voters are generally the least-informed.
Seriously, the difference between Obama and Romney is not exactly awash in nuance.
