Jonah Goldberg, National Review Online editor, believes stupid people shouldn’t be allowed to vote:
“Goldberg…explains that he believes letting 18-year-old Americans vote is a big mistake that should be taken back..Goldberg said that young voters are “so frickin’ stupid about so many things,” which is why, in his view, the system must change.
“It is a simple fact of science that nothing correlates more with ignorance and stupidity more than youth,” Goldberg said.”
OK, Jonah. I’ll play along. Let’s disenfranchise the stupid.
“[A]ccording to Fairleigh Dickinson University’s latest PublicMind poll…which asked New Jerseyans where they find news and information about current events…Fox News actually leads people to be less informed than those who consume no news at all.”
So amend Goldberg’s statement to read:
Fox News viewers are so frickin’ stupid about so many things, which is why the system must change. It is a simple fact of science that nothing correlates more with ignorance and stupidity more than watching Fox News.
There. Fixed it.
