Summary, etc.:
Humorist Andy Borowitz argues that over the past fifty years, American politicians have grown increasingly allergic to knowledge, and mass media have encouraged the election of ignoramuses by elevating candidates who are better at performing than thinking. Borowitz shows how, during the age of 24-hour news and social media, the US has elected politicians to positions of great power whose lack of the most basic information is terrifying.
