Who Hijacked Our Country

Warning: Coming to a Voting Booth Near You…

In a survey of one thousand American adults (chronologically at least), two thirds of them could not name one single U.S. Supreme Court justice.

But on the bright side, they were able to name three countries.

And in our “Small World” department — these same respondents also took part in another survey.

I'm taking the polls right now with a grain of salt. Rasmussen had Paul up by like 25 points now he is only up by 8. That should be a talking point right there. So how do you think he lost all those points repubs? Not like it would be answered by them.

There's that wise Latina, the eye-talian always flipping everyone off, pubic hair guy, and a bunch of old crackers.

I am not particularly a Rand fan, but I suspect he lost points partially through his own foolish comments and partially through the never-ending state-run media beating him down.

Jess: It's absurd to be worrying about polls this early. I think the unemployment rate will call it in November. If it stays the same or gets worse, Republicans will kick some Dem ass. If not, the Dems will hold their own.

I wasn't planning to do a post about that poll; I just decided to link it to the other story about most people not being able to name a single Supreme Court justice.

Randal: OMG, you're one of the 1-percenters. You named them all. Congrats.

TP: So Rachel Maddow -- the person who played the biggest role in getting Rand Paul to put his foot in his mouth on TV -- works for the state? Hmmm, learn something every day.

T. Paine: What a stupid comment you just made, and I usually find your comments to be sensible. Rand Paul has made a lot of really racist, stupid remarks. The fact that the media called him on it doesn't not constitute "the never-ending state-run media beating him down." You sound like Sarah Palin, who called any question she couldn't answer a "gotcha" -- including what magazines she reads. Really pathetic. Please do better than this or don't waste everybody's time.

Brings to mind two of my favorite stories:

William Rogers was a buddy of Ronald Reagan and was nominated for an assistant Secretary of State. At his confirmation hearing he couldn't answer any basic questions about foreign countries, geography, or what their status was.. more surprising was that the senate confirmed him (Over the objections of our allies).

Every year (maybe they still do it) they would read the Preamble to Southern College and High School Seniors and asked their opinion. A high number would always conclude it was from some document like the Communist Manifesto or something.

I wouldn't take Rasmussen too seriously in any case. They're notorious for leading questions.
