BOB HERBERT: IF ONLY MORE PEOPLE HAD VOTED!

In today’s New York Times, columnist Bob Herbert argues that President Bush won last week because the American people are ignorant. He suggests in passing that Kerry could have won if only more people (presumably less ignorant people) had voted:

Last week’s election was extremely close and a modest shift in any number of factors might have changed the outcome. If the weather had been better in Ohio. …If the wait to get into the voting booth hadn’t been so ungodly long in certain Democratic precincts. … Or maybe if those younger voters had actually voted.

I hope other bloggers will dissect his claims about voter ignorance. As for blaming low turnout, I took apart that argument last week.
