People Are Stupid

This is, of course, the assumption pundits make when evaluating the performances of candidates. This is the justification they use for focusing on style over substance, for privileging the trivial over the important. Since they spend all of their time trying to explain to us what this imaginary stupid voter might think about things, you'd think it might be simpler to just hire a few of these very stupid people to be pundits. Oh, wait.
