Voter ignorance is helping Harry Reid...

Voter ignorance is helping Harry Reid to pull off a Hugo Chavez-style “takeover” here in the U.S.   Neo-neocon has a nice piece on this phenomenon, which concludes:
But Harry Reid is well aware of something else: the fact that more and more voters are ignorant of the way our government is set up, and why it was designed that way. So he knows he can get away with these ignorant-sounding remarks. Or perhaps he is aware that some of the public knows how the government is set up and doesn’t care or would even like that system changed; some think it’s archaic and gets in the way of what they want Reid and company to do (see this or this).

Reid is aware of still another thing: that he and Obama and the Democrats have much of the MSM in their pockets. That’s one of the reasons he was so outraged when Bash asked him some tough questions yesterday; she was breaking the protective rules to which he’s grown accustomed. So he served notice on her; after calling the Republican House “reckless and irresponsible,” he tarred Bash with the same brush, saying “To have someone of your intelligence to suggest such a thing means you’re as irresponsible and reckless.”

That’ll teach her to be so impudent.

These remarks of Reid’s are the hallmarks of an elected official and a party whose arrogance has swollen to unconscionable and dangerous proportions.
