Who is "Stupider"?

I can't help but wonder if something is amiss in this situation.

On one end, it is easy for the people to be angry that the government (SUPP) allegedly offered RM500 to buy the votes of the Iban people but if we pause for a moment and think about it, why do the Iban people fall for the same cheap tricks again and again? Is it really so easy to buy their votes? How does RM500 even come close to be able to compensate them for the "pain and suffering" that they would have to go through?

Something feels wrong here because I would not throw away my dignity for RM500. Something tells me that the Iban people won't feel inclined to do it as well. But then again, who knows?
