Today I read an article about how being "dumb" pays off for GOP candidates. The article pointed out that two of the last three elected GOP presidents were generally considered be not be the brightest bulb on the christmas tree.
ESK and I stepped outside for her mid-morning smoke break and discussed. We pointed out that in constrast to the GOP presidents, the last three Democrats elected to the highest office were, in fact, smart.
We also like to consider ourselves to be on the smarter end of the spectrum. We also joke about the extreme degree to which we are both rule followers. And, we don't wield untold power. We aren't fabulously rich or famous. And, clearly, we screwed up by working hard and studying hard and following all those rules.
