"I'm ignorant and I approve this message."

Dan Weiss, former political director at the Sierra Club and now director of climate strategy at the Center for American Progress, thinks this clip from UCB Comedy proves that Sierra Club chairman Carl Pope and I were ahead of our time with our 2004 Sierra Club book (sadly no longer available!) Strategic Ignorance: Why the Bush Administration is Recklessly Destroying a Century of Environmental Progress.


Sound like any candidates you know? Weiss may be right: If enough of the ignoramuses get elected, Strategic Ignorance may need a major update.
