This is a transcript of Joe Vecchio's daily "Cup O' Joe Report" podcast, availaible via "screaming audio" here and posted with the permission of the author.

Sometimes I sit down and try to figure some people out. Why does anybody think that FOX News is really "fair and balanced"? Why do people give lots of money to Pat Robertson? Why do some people think that who wins the Super Bowl is more important than who's going to sit on the Supreme Court. I mean I like football as much as the next guy, but let's get real here. And every time I try to think this through, I always come to the same conclusion: that these are just simple people who don't know or care about anything that goes on outside of their own little worlds. You know. Morons.

And the Republicans, they play 'em like a banjo. They're not just counting on people being morons, they're banking on it. After all, people who are too stupid to know they're being scammed make the best targets. But as clever as the Republicans think they are, they can be just as moronic as their victims. If they were really smart, they'd be satisfied with a little less just to keep the scam going. But that never happens. They always wind up going too far and it all comes crashing down. And when it falls, it falls on all of us whether we're scammers, victims, or just innocent bystanders.

Of course, people have every right to be morons if they want to be, there's no law against it. But the difference between a liberal like me and the Republican scam artists running the country now is that I want them to be happy, prosperous morons, the Republicans want them to be poor, scared ones.
