Tucker Carlson: Idiot or Fool?

tucker gets jiggy wid it

The bow tie may be gone, but the effects it had cutting off the oxygen supply to his head linger:

[H]e's claiming that bloggers aren't qualified to choose who's the next President. He said, "how can a bunch of pre-pubescent kids living in their mom's basement eating ice-cream sandwiches decide who's the next President"? 

From the 2006 Blogads readership survey :

The median political blog reader is a 43 year old man with an annual family income of $80,000. He reads 6 blogs a day for 10 hours a week. 39% have post-graduate degrees. 70% have contributed to a campaign.

These stereotypes persist because people like Tucker Carlson are just too stupid and lazy to check their facts.  He just continues to be bad for America.
