    Dems are just too smart for us!

    From Sen Hirono - a first class idiot...

    Sen. Hirono: Democrats Have a Hard Time "Connecting" With People Because Of "How Smart We Are"

    Sen. Mazie Hirono (D-HI) said Democrats have a difficult time "connecting" with voters because of "how smart we are" that "we know so much." Hirono was interviewed by journalist Dahlia Lithwick at the 'Bend Towards Justice' conference in Washington, D.C. on Tuesday.

    "We're really good at shoving out all the information that touch people here (points to head) but not here (points to heart)," Hirono said of Democrats.

    "I've been saying it at all of our Senate Democratic retreats that we need to speak to the heart not in a manipulative way, not in a way that brings forth everybody's fears and resentments but truly to speak to the hearts so that people know that we’re actually on their side," the Senator said.

    "We have a really hard time doing that," Hirono lamented, "and one of the reasons it was told to me at one of our retreats was that we Democrats know so much, that is true. And we have kind of have to tell everyone how smart we are and so we have a tendency to be very left brain."

    Deliberately ironic typo in the thread title?
    Some may call me foolish, and some may call me odd
    But I'd rather be a fool in the eyes of man
    Than a fool in the eyes of God

    The ironic thing is that Democrats don't "talk to the head" - they are all about appealing to emotions. Just look at all of their issues and how they try to use shame on people and call people racists and bigot and want to be inclusive and hug everyone and everyone can have a trophy and be any gender they want to be, yada, yada.

    I expect every boomer/Xer conservative in America will go to the grave still ranting about participation trophies.

    They don't call them "bleeding heart liberals" for their IQ.

    Isn't there a name for this? Dunning-Kruger effect or some such thing?
    Micah 6:8 He has told you, O man, what is good; and what does the LORD require of you but to do justice, and to love kindness, and to walk humbly with your God?
