Republicans to America: You're Morons

There's a document floating around the Web, which Josh Marshall has up at, that it really funny. It's a 103-pagecongressional pamphlet, circulated among Republicans who want to privatize Social Security and there's a section called: "Communicating Social Security Reform" which tells you just what they think of us.

One tip: "Keep the numbers small: Your audience doesn't know how trillions and billions differ. They know these numbers are large, but not how large nor how many billions make a trillion. Boil the numbers down to "your family's share." Also avoid percentages; your audience will try to calculate them in their head -- no easy task while listening to a speech -- and many will do it incorrectly."

Then bounce your head from shoulder to shoulder, giggle and say "Math is hard!"

Haven't both political parties already demonstrated, ad nauseum, their complete contempt for the public as a whole? Just look at almost any candidate, from either side, and you can clearly see how little they think of us.
