Zbig Brzezinski: 'Ignorant' Americans Susceptible to 'Simplistic Slogans'

You mean, like the Americans who made president someone who two years before had been a state legislator and ran on "hope and change"?

Seriously, just who did Zbigniew Brzezinski have in mind when he said this on Morning Joe today?

"We have a large public that's very ignorant about world affairs, and very susceptible to simplistic slogans by candidates who appear out of nowhere, have no track record, but mouth appealing slogans."

Brzezinski repeated the notion a bit later: "We talked about the candidates earlier. It's amazing to me that some of the leading candidates are people who absolutely have no track record and have no serious ideas other than a lot of slogans."

Question: just what track record did Barack Obama have when he ran for president, beyond voting "present" 130 times in the Illinois State Senate?
