O! Say Can You See...

Can you answer all 3 of these questions?

1. Which party now controls Congress?
2. Who is the current U.S. secretary of state?

3. Name the new prime minister of Great Britain.


I certainly hope so!

According to a Pew Survey on News Consumption (taken every two years and released this afternoon), the national average for answering the three questions was only 18%!!


Let me repeat that again... 18-freaking-percent! Are you kidding me?


According to the release, even though most Americans surveyed scored poorly on the test, a vast majority of them actually believe that they follow national news closely - obviously not close enough! Maybe this shouldn't be a surprise, but it's rather pathetic and embarrassing.

    Well, maybe if the Dems, Condi and Gordy got themselves some good PR that would put them on the same par as Britney, Lindsay, Paris... Or Obama! LOL!!
