Loyalty, going over the cliff 

Over at Digby there's a discussion going on about whether Bush really is stupid, in response to Digby's post titled- 'Uhm no - he's just an idiot'. The discussion is about how come, if Bush is so dumb, that people keep voting for him. Commenter Farang writes something that seems true to me: " . . . the mental midgets, the struggling, never getting anywhere crowd sees [in Bush] a savior, someone that only values loyalty, not merit or ability, as a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to advance. Imagine living a life where you always struggled with keeping up, then Bush comes along: You see yourself, and rejoice, all you need to do is join the . . . Republican party . . . "
But as the crowd continues to thunder forward, an feeling of uneasiness is growing. The people who were supposed to be leading this parade don't appear to be anywhere in sight, and there sure seems to be a lot of screaming going on up ahead there. There's so much dust they can't quite see what's happening, but people are yelling about some sort of cliff . . .
