This Explains Everything...

This makes me worried… but unfortunately doesn’t totally surprise me.

The results of a poll commissioned by AOL and conducted by Zogby, are showing a staggeringly low-level of knowledge about politics and government but startlingly high-levels of knowledge for anything pop-culture related.

The results showed that more Americans could name the members of the Three Stooges than can name the three branches of government with 73% knowing Larry, Moe & Curly and only 42% knowing executive, judicial and legislative.

Within this same group, 77% percent could name 2 of Snow White's seven dwarfs but only 24% could name two Supreme Court justices.

Is it any wonder George W. Bush is president??
