6. It might be a good phrase to hang around the enabling Republicans' collective necks.

Sadly a meme of only two words inevitably lacks nuance.

Your point is well taken and is useful for a percentage of these folks, but doesn't explain "naturally stupid" people like Louie Gohmert.

A further nuance: If they want to act stupid, they are stupid. What intelligent person would act stupid when the stakes are so high? (Well, I imagine a great many, but we're back into nuance and nuance don't surf)
