Jason Kottke: How George Bush won the election.

I don’t think America is that divided. I think most of us are ill-informed in two major ways, “conveniently” split along the lines of the two major political parties available to us. We’re told we have two different choices — you’re rooting for this team or that team and the other team is the enemy — and we believe that and organize our beliefs accordingly.

Read the whole thing (it’s pretty short) – it’s an interesting take. A good degree of truth in there methinks. Some of Jason’s thoughts are similar to those I expressed last week.
