A Must Read Piece on Education in America

This rather trenchant essay by Mr. Sale is a little long, but stay with it.

Today's GOPhers know all about this and are exploiting the gullibility of the uncultured masses, who are easily
led to accept the idea that all things can be seen in  black and white contrast.  The genius of the GOPhers since
Rove/Bush has been to keep it simple for the simple people.  As George W. Bush once told a journalist, "I don't do nuance".

Couple that with the recent Gallop Poll which found that 46% of Americans believe in Creationism,
not Evolution.

How can a thoughtful, educated, cultured American become president in view of these realities?
