Americans: Dumb and Dumber
OK, let’s say you’ve carefully, delicately explained to your child that there’s no such thing as Santa Claus, the Easter Bunny, the Tooth Fairy. The kid seems to understand perfectly, without being too traumatized or anything, and you’re thinking “Whew! I’m glad we got this out of the way.”
And then two years later the same child is jumping up and down with hysterical glee, yelling “Oh boy, I can’t wait to see what Santa brought me!!!”
Well, it seems millions of American grownups (chronologically anyway) are suffering from this exact syndrome, whatever you’d call it. A few years after it was clearly established and reiterated again and again that Saddam Hussein had NO connection whatsoever with bin Laden, al Qaeda or 9/11, a LARGER percentage of Americans actually believed that Iraq was involved with the 9/11 attacks.
And now, there’s been an INCREASE in the number of Americans who think President Barack Obama is a Muslim. [sigh] When a person is “slow,” you can put this person in special classes, try to shield him/her from challenging or dangerous situations, etc. What do you do when an entire country is dumber than a post?
Obama’s defensive reaction — announcing that he prays daily — isn’t going to help. The hardcore haters won’t believe him anyway, and these defensive reactions are just going to encourage more venomous attacks from the Right. (As if those dickwads needed any encouragement.)
Now, maybe Obama could solidify his Christian reputation by visiting the Creation Museum in Kentucky. He’ll have to keep a straight face though. Any smirking or sarcastic comments, and the security guards will give you the heave ho.
