The Braindead Megaphone in Congress

leave a comment »

George Saunders wrote an essay called “The Braindead Megaphone” in which he describes how media is making us stupid. Sadly, I would add that many of our elected officials are doing the same.

This post is the beginning of a series on those who trumpet the braindead megaphone to disseminate idiocy. As Saunders said, these are the people who “put an intelligence-ceiling on the party.”

For today’s installment, we have US Congresswoman Sheila Jackson (Dem.) of Texas’ 18th District.
