The First Step is to Admit We Have a Problem 

Posted by Aris in the comments on Kevin Drum's site.

But, when all is said and done, Bush's very convincing popular vote has one unmistakable cause: Kerry lost because more Americans indisputably like, trust, and feel more comfortable and safer with Bush than with Kerry.

Why? The unavoidably obvious explanation is that Americans are by-and-large morons. Simpleminded, uninformed and undereducated, intellectually lazy and proud in their ignorance to boot, self-important and self-righteous, arrogant and benighted idiots. They are a reflection of George W. Bush, and in him they saw themselves. That's why they love him and trust him so. Their reality is the faith-based myth that America is blessed and always right and great and perfect and freedom is handed own by God and not manmade constitutional governments and cultures of tolerance and inquiry. The are certain that the "real" America is in the unpleasant, xenophobic, homophobic, red states in the middle, where everybody has a white picket fence in the brain and they don't seem aware of their own squalor and the fact that they make ends meet only because the far more prosperous blue states continue to subsidize their light beer guzzling.

More people voted for this idiot than for Kerry. This is what we have to come to grips with. The majority of the American electorate voted for Bush; voting for an idiot is idiocy, which is something usually practiced by idiots; ergo... What other conclusion can there be? Americans chose Bush. They deserve him.
