Last night Bill Maher had Jim Glassman - the spokesmodel for people who think Americans are really, really stupid - on to argue that America isn't stupid. It was pretty clever. To prove that America really is stupid the others let him rattle on about how strong the economy is without countering with the ready made observation from the previous week that poverty has risen for the 4th year in a row, etc., from which the already redbaited ("Am I talking to Karl Marx here?" crosstalked Glassman) George Carlin might have observed the lamentable lack of class warfare in the face of ongoing class slaughter. Nobody's more class conscious in this country than the people who run it.
