Friday Failures & The 18 Percenters
What do you get when you cross a Pew Research quiz and Failblog.org?
Some pretty scary stuff.
The Pew quiz results:
The survey, conducted April 30-June 1 among 3,612 adults ages 18 and over, found that about half of Americans (53%) knew that the Democrats have a majority in the House of Representatives, while 42% could identify the secretary of state (Condoleezza Rice). Fewer than three-in-ten (28%) could name the prime minister of Great Britain (Gordon Brown). Just 18% of the public answered all three questions correctly.
Sounds chilling, right?
Before you judge, take a look at today's failures...
That day care disaster flyer, the free steak knives with kid cereal offer, and that (cough) delicious (cough) license plate are just 3 examples found at failblog.org today.
Now, how do you feel about a mere 18% answering all three questions correctly?
Sounds about right, doesn't it?
The really chilling part: How many of the other 82% vote?
Number of days since Donna Brazile promised to leave the party if superdelegates decided the Dem nominee:
Donna has known for a long time now that superdelegates would be necessary for any Dem candidate to win the nomination this year. Ask Donna when she intends to keep her promise.
Don't hold your breath awaiting a reply.
Here's Donna now...
