RT takes to the streets of Manhattan in their own little “Jay Walking” segment to quiz “average” Americans about the world around them…
The results are predictably appalling, but before getting too smug, they likely wouldn’t be that much different if this informal survey of incurious knownothings was taken on the streets of Toronto or elsewhere in Canada.

Another day, another nadir of utter stupidity…
“This is what democracy looks like,” the dancing assclowns shouted in defense of their right to behave like jackals at public memorial sites.
Meanwhile, their country is in a total shambles… $15 trillion in debt, 3 “official” wars (several other undeclared ones) are ongoing, 14 million are unemployed, 45 million people are on food stamps (about the same number without any health insurance), 1 in 7 children are homeless, and America boasts the most fantastic income disparity in entire world…
Nice to see that these “democracy” activists have their priorities straight.
Everything you need to know about the outrageous fakery and stunning ignorance of Sarah Palin is neatly summarized in her version of Paul Revere’s so-called “Midnight Ride” delivered on her ludicrous self-promotional bus tour the other day…
“He who warned, uh, the the British that they weren’t gonna be takin’ away our arms, uh, by ringin’ those bells and, um, by makin’ sure that as he’s ridin’ his horse through town to send those warnin’ shots and bells that, uh, we were gonna be secure and we were gonna be free and we were gonna be armed.”
Which begs the question, raised here by Thomas Roberts filling in on The Last Word program: why would anyone in their right mind trust Palin’s interpretation about anything (potential effects of not raising the U.S. debt ceiling, in this example) given her obvious lack of elementary knowledge about even the most basic facts?
Sadly, the answer is simple. She appeals directly to the countless millions of Americans that are every bit as woefully ignorant and catastrophically dumb as she is.
It’s hard to fathom the demented mind of a parent that would train a 4 year-old to parrot asinine gibberish in support of a political party.

Sorry, but I just love that guy’s name. What an absolutely horrific childhood he must have had.
Anyway, speaking of flakes, that would be 72 percent of Republican primary voters who either don’t believe that Obama was born in the United States or aren’t sure…
Although really, this shouldn’t be at all surprising in a country where a majority of Americans cannot name a single branch of government and are utterly clueless about any number of other things that, as Bill Maher quipped, “you should be able to pick up simply by being alive.”
Bill Maher justifies his recent comment on CNN that America is a “stupid country” (if in doubt, simply refer to this post earlier today or visit the comments section of Michelle Malkin’s website any old day of the week).
Not that I’m altogether keen on “nut-picking” but it’s impossibly hard to resist when dealing with the Malkinettes:
Time for all 50 (well 49 Hawaii wouldn’t dare turn it’s [sic] back on dear leader) States to delcare [sic] sovereignty or better yet offer up succession [sic] legislation!!!
Fish, a barrel, a smoking gun…
It’s a scary, scary world out there…
But also one filled with loads of tragically inadvertent hilarity.
Speaking “truth to stupid”…
I happened to catch Maher on CNN’s “Situation Room” this afternoon where he reiterated the allegation that America is a “stupid nation” and getting “dumber by the day” which drew predictably angry responses from the usual suspects, thereby helping to prove his point.
Update: Here’s the video of that exchange on CNN.
Also, because the latest New Rules was killed due to a copyright infringement claim by HBO, let’s try the one from last week instead. See… stoopid.

Keith Olbermann talked yesterday with Julio Osegueda, the young man who enthusiastically grabbed the attention of President Barack Obama during yesterday’s town hall in Florida to ask what the government was going to do to improve his benefits as a 4-year McDonald’s employee.
A few casual observations here…
1) “God” had nothing to do with Osegueda being called on (how many times did this goofball claim that he’d been “blessed”?); 2) Obama didn’t really answer the man’s ridiculous question, but instead neatly stickhandled around it, doling out instead vague platitudes about tax credits and educational incentives; 3) the White House staff then fibbed about the exchange on their “live blog” of the Town Hall, thereby misrepresenting the issues “discussed” (undermining their credibility in the process); and 4) the media was utterly hopeless in its reporting.
As reported, a recently divorced man dressed as Santa Claus opened fire at a Christmas Eve party and then set ablaze the house of his former in-laws, killing at least eight people, police said. Several hours later, the shooter killed himself.
