>>> and in "psycho talk" tonight, rush limbaugh shares his expertise on being ignorant and uninformed.
>> isn't it due to ignorant and uninformed voters that we got obama? aren't the democrats trying to dumb down everybody in our schools? for what purpose? brainwashing them. but somebody who genuinely cares about the country would -- and he's informed -- would not vote for obama. the uninformed voter is a democrat target audience.
>> all right. let me straighten this out. first of all, democrats aren't the ones brainwashing students. it's a fact. it was texas republicans who fought to make social studies textbooks more conservative last year. also, misinformation is the cornerstone of the republican election strategy. democrats, they didn't come up with death panels. last month, a fairly dickinson university poll showed, "some media outlets, especially fox news, lead people to be even less informed than those who say they don't watch any news at all." of course, it's no secret why.
>> pepper spray , that just burns your eyes, right?
>> right. it's like a derivative of actual pepper. it's a food product semessentially.
>> the death panels are back.
>> critics are saying the administration is pressuring certain disabled veterans to, quote, hurry up and die.
>> global warming, where are you? we want you back.
>> if we don't reduce our carbon emissions, aliens might come and kill us.
>> so fox news viewers are the most uninformed and most fox news viewers are republicans. last year a poll showed 78% of them support republican candidates. so for rush limbaugh to say democrats are dumbing everybody down is uninformed "psycho talk."
