  1. Stunts like that always find a disturbing number of “hammers”. In this case it was about 25%.

    That always make it easier for me to understand Bush’s numbers.

    Now that I think of it, I wonder how he would do on that question.

  2. biggerbox,
    Bush would point at Iraq! Or, today, Iran.

    “After all, we’re fighten’ ’em… over there, we’re fighten’ ’em… not here.. not there… no, not there… we’re… we’re… fighten’… we’re… God Damn it! We’re fighten’ ’em somewhere!!!”

    PS: Nice observation about the 25%!!! Thank you.
    This proves that ‘ignorance is bliss’ is wrong. Ignorance is a blast! ‘Especially if you’re the one doing the blastin! (SMIRK)’

    God, I wish I could find a job in a progressive country… Canadian Reader, any suggestion’s?

  3. I graduated from high school in 1972. We took government in our senior year. Had to read the New York Times every day and discuss current events. 1972.

    I remember a discussion one day that lead our teacher to ask the girl next to me, who turned out to be my sister-in-law some years later, “who is the current president of the United States?” … and she had absolutely no idea. She didn’t know who Nixon was. Never heard the name. Never heard the name Spiro Agnew. In 1972, mind. Those boys were getting some serious press in 1972.

    I’ve always known they were out there, dumb as dirt with soil test results to prove it, but it still shocks me to this day.

  4. c u n d gulag,

    What’s your profession? It’s not actually all that easy to emigrate to Canada, but it can be done. Check out the Immigration Canada website. We’re always happy to welcome refugees from Bush’s gulag!

  5. A Canadian Reader,
    Thanks for the tip!!! I’ll look it up.
    BTW- I’m a Corporate Trainer (Teacher).

    I desperately need some hope…

    America has become a rotten-Banana Republic. The worst is yet to come, though. I don’t want to be here for the next Depression.

    I keep figthing, but I grow weary. I live in Fayetteville, NC, an Army town, and I’m tired and weary of seeing the kid’s come and go. Not as tired and weary as they are, of course. But, still tired…

    This war must end sometime.

    Won’t the Bush madness EVER end?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!??!?!?!?

  6. c u n d gulag. As a graduate student in urban planning I share your opinions about Canada – I think the quality of life there would be significantly higher. I remember watching a similar video on CNN International a couple years ago when people in Manhattan couldn’t find New York state on the world map. The women asked one man where New York was and he replied by saying, “we are standing on it.” Hmm…

  8. Given that the video was taken in front of a Wal-Mart, I’m amazed he had so few failures. I was expecting 50-75% of Wally World customers in suburban GA wouldn’t be able to do it.
