Open thread — I'm just tossing out this quote
“There are some in politics who hold that voters are dumb, ill informed and easily misled, that voters can be manipulated by a clever ad or a smart line. I’ve seen this cynicism over the years from political professionals and journalists. American people are not policy wonks, but they have great instincts and try to do the right thing. …[It’s] wrong to underestimate the intelligence of the American voter, but easy to overestimate their interest. Much tugs at their attention.”
— Karl Rove, speaking to graduating students at the George Washington University Graduate School of Political Management.
What tugs at the attention of The Base, hmmm?
