...that stupid people think the rest of the world is as stupid as they are. I think that Clay Aiken
actually taking time to say he's gay, as if anyone was unaware of it, is solid proof of this.
But then again, most of his fan base was upset with him for having a child out of wedlock, so his fan-base must self-select some level of functional daily delusion. Maybe some of them /didn't/ figure out he was gay.
