The attractions of stupidity as opposed to 'intelligence'.

Intelligence’, ‘wit’, ‘reason’, ‘mind’, in this context, all mark the realm of reflecting, calculating consciousness, the way we measure our chances and think through our options. 
However for some the greater the stupidity, the greater the clarity. Stupidity is brief and guileless, while wit equivocates and hides. Wit is a scoundrel, while stupidity is honest and sincere.’ And again, in Constance Garnett’s much older version: ‘The stupider one is, the clearer one is. Stupidity is brief and artless, while intelligence wriggles and hides itself. Intelligence is a knave, but stupidity is honest and straightforward.’
Think of Clinton naming half the nation 'deplorables' yes, Clinton yes nillions of Americans were benighted rabble
it was as if she was speaking Mount Superior Intelligence little did she know that her tongue was aflame at the remark would come back to burn her
