sad but true, although i had to laugh at the opening paragraph. because they believe they did a good job, they don't believe they bear any responsibility for the voters lack of knowledge.
it would be nice if people took time to be informed, but the sad truth is that most turn on the 6pm news and what they hear is what they know. the MSM failed miserably in this election to do any kind of investigative journalism except when if came to palin. i suppose they figured everyone knew about mccain, and they didn't want to find anything to tarnish "the one".
there are some pretty stupid people out there on both sides, but liberals seem to consistently be less informed. i believe it is because they make political decision based more on feeling and less on fact. i base this observation on the emotional tirades found on the admittedly left wing sites, printed press, and cable sites. anyone would be hard pressed to find actionable facts interspersed in the vitriolic yammering.
