Bell Curve

by Mark C. Wallfisch

“Look at the bell curve, Boss.  That’s the normal distribution of intelligence in the population.  Half the people are on the left side.  They’re easy pickins.  They’ll glom onto simple lies appealing to fear repeated over and over and over.  That’s half the people right there. Then all you need are a few bigots and a few conservatives on the right side, and you’ve got a majority.”

“Ain’t democracy great.”
