Why Supidity Is Smart In Politics

This article provides brief history of stupid remarks made by politicians in order to get attention.  Most of the politicians are not stupid but their remarks attract more of an audience than substantive comments on public policy issues.  Personal attacks are especially helpful in attracting an audience and demonstrating forceful leadership qualities.  The Donald helps to bring this strategy up to date in our polarized society.  It is working well for him.  His pretenders are much too timid.
