The bottom line is that people as a whole are generally more stupid than we ever imagined possible.
I don't think that's the case; rather, it's becoming easier and easier for stupid people to have their voices heard. Stupid people can figure out Facebook and how to post comments on CNN.com. It's harder to figure out where, and how, to send an actual letter.
Its just easy to shoot out an electronic message.
