Stupid Is As Stupid Does

I don't know what I was watching the other day, but someone had a camera crew in front of the White House. They were asking people some very basic questions about government.

Two of the questions: Who is the vice president? And can you name someone in the House of Representatives?

It was astounding the number of people who couldn't answer either question.

How oblivious do you have to be not to be able to come up with the name of the vice president or that of one of the 435 members of the House?

The question wasn't even, who represents you in the house? It was name a member -- any member -- of the house.

How far removed from what is happening in this country do you have to be not to be able to come up with the name Pelosi or Ryan?

Or Weiner, for the love of God!

Of course when many of these same dolts were asked to name two of the Kardashian sisters, they rattled off two names correctly with almost no thought.

People who are going to vote in the next election can't come up with the name, Joe Biden, but Kim and Khloe are on the front burner of the mush occupying their brain pans.

God help us.
