So now articulately expressing the views of about 60% of the electorate, by a man who with his wfe went through the whole process (as did my paternal grandparents in a harsher time) is "stupid"?

None of the above. You are clearly the most clever, considering the number of comments from those who admire your mathematics book. I'll bet you sold a few more as a consequence of the award. One question: Who, in a democracy, is best qualified to judge the winner of a "stupidest man alive" award? Shouldn't this be put up for a vote? What's more, doesn't asking that particular question--rather than "who is the wisest man alive?"--make oneself, if only for a moment, stupid? Just asking.
