Stupid is as stupid does in the voting booth

In terms of education, how did the past election shape up?

Bobby Jindl says the GOP has to stop being “the stupid party.” His state ranked No. 5 among the worst educated states, and it went Republican. Until you improve the educational environment for your citizens, the base will remain incapable of making rational choices. And if you have to appeal to an irrational base, you come up with irrational policies.
