Functional illiteracy

The nature of the Republican candidate for President is amply displayed by the following facts:

1. The US financial markets are in their biggest crisis since the great depression.
2. The Treasury Secretary Paulson issued a bailout plan on September 19, a three page document, that was widely available on the Internet and in newspapers, and the subject of intense debate since.
3. McCain had not read the plan as of September 23, four days later.

I was going to stay away from politics for a while. Then I watched the debate last night. Big mistake... Ended up blogging at 1 am.

I used to ask whether people are really this stupid. Sad answer... Yes.
