It is traditionally held in the United States that there are two major political parties, which can fairly be described as the “Stupid” party and the “Evil” party.
Thoughtful partisans on each side are firmly convinced that their own party is the “Stupid” party, while the opposition is the “Evil” party.
(If you think the situation is less symmetrical than that, I submit that this is an indicator of your partisanship.)
However, this is wrong.
Both parties, like the electorates that support them, and humanity in general, are about 80% stupid and 20% evil.
