“Strategic Ignorance” a la McCain-Palin Campaign

14 10 2008

From Carl Pope today:

. . .in certain “zero sum” games where someone has to lose, it can be possible for a player to do better for himself, and worse for other players, by refusing to learn as he goes along — and that this strategy summed up George Bush’s presidency.

I am not suggesting that the McCain-Palin campaign is making similar, “strategic” use of their ignorance — it’s simply another example of a presidential campaign that, sadly, has become all tactics, with no strategy or vision at all.
