You'd have to be stupider than a Palm Beach granny
It's pretty weird, reading all these pundits in the newspaper editorials publicly making jokes about the senility of those voters who screwed up on that oddly misleading Palm Beach ballot. I mean, sure, you want your man to win and you root for your side, but picking on old people.
Granny's irreplacable personal experience, let's just focus on the adult part of it, might typically include quite a few politically-informative events, viewed up close in real time, such as the Great Depression, the Second World War, the nuclear-armed Cold War and five or six decades wrestling with the job market. Also, to earn her title as "Granny," throw in a couple or three decades, bearing and raising human children from infancy to adulthood. Her experience, in weight and depth, could easily be greater than yours and mine put together, plus throw in another three or four typical K5 readers, OK? She's probably got bad eyesight. You too could maybe screw up if you couldn't see good. That happens a lot when people get old, you know? But Granny isn't stupid.
