Chump-Ass Suckers

Why we have nothing but contempt for crackers: They'll believe anything, even (Especially?) the obviously wrong & stupid.
Patricia Cohen / New York Times:
Southerners, Facing Big Odds, Believe in a Path Out of Poverty  —  HUNTSVILLE, Ala. — A widening income gap and sagging social mobility have left dents in the American dream.  But the belief that anyone with enough gumption and grit can clamber to the top remains central to the nation's self-image.
"Gumption and grit". My ass.
