Once Again--Claysinsanity turns out to be right!!

Well maybe its a little to early in this whole "blogging" experience to start claming I'm right again, but I nonetheless I am right. On November 5, I stated that a downfall in the education system was one of the reasons leading to Obama's election. Basically explaining, that many of these people were ignorant on politics because they have never been educated in these areas. Well a website indicates the following:

57.4% could NOT correctly say which party controls congress
56.1% could NOT correctly say Obama started his political career at the home of two former members of the Weather Underground
Only 13.7% failed to identify Sarah Palin as the person on which their party spent $150,000 in clothes
Only 6.2% failed to identify Palin as the one with a pregnant teenage daughter
And 86.9 % thought that Palin said that she could see Russia from her "house," even though that was Tina Fey who said that!!
Only 2.4% got at least 11 (questions) correct.
Only .5% got all of (the) questions correct.

Please take 10 mins to watch this video!!!!

Obama rode in on a wave of ignorance.

I have seen that and was horrified by the comments and the faces those people make while answering. They laugh at their own ignorance.

Our education system is horribly horribly flawed.

It would be funnier if it didn't have consequences for us all.

It was seeing this level of ignorance that prompted me to create a blog. I'm finding that people are just too lazy and complacent to educate themselves. Sad, for America.
