Irish Examiner Rush Limbo mentioned yesterday I think is worth a look. The author talks about the "low information voter" and Republican's inability to reach this (and it kills me to say this) very important voting bloc. When I read it I swear she described to a T a guy I know. He's an otherwise intelligent human being but doesn't like politics, big into sports, watches John Stewart regularly to tell him what to think, and votes Democrat religiously. If I try to engage him on politics he shuts down immediately and says "you believe what you want to believe and leave me alone". How does one connect with people like this? These are not morons, they're disengaged and therefore vulnerable to class warfare arguments and most of the other bullshit the Democrats throw against the wall. I'm at a loss. As the saying goes, they know just enough to be dangerous AND THEY VOTE!
