Turns out the secret to President Obama’s victory was “the illiterate vote.”
The writer goes on to argue that this creates a political imperative for Republicans to make a big investment in literacy. That he arrives at the conclusion that such an investment would be a good idea by way of a trip through the most cynical back alleys of Crazy Town is a little disturbing (as is the entire piece). But ultimately, if Republican lawmakers decide they want to invest more in literacy because it’s the only way to combat Obama’s illiterate zombie army, I think we’d take it.
