Stupid People

| | Comments (0)
There are a lot of ridiculously stupid people who vote.

There was a measure on the Washington statewide ballot this year, Senate Joint Resolution 8207, which modifies how members of the Commission on Judicial Conduct are selected.

I am not saying you are stupid if you voted for it, or against it. I don't care about that. But I heard not one word about it on TV or radio, saw nothing about it online, and saw barely anything about it in print. So I can't imagine that many others knew much more about it than I did.

Yet, it is passing overwhelmingly, so we have hundreds of thousands of voters voting for something they don't really know anything about, which isn't uncommon, except that this is a Constitutional Amendment. People are voting to amend the Constitution and they don't even know what they are voting for.

It's maddening. I'm ... well, not speechless, but close to it. People are so incredibly stupid.
