Add this to the stack... 

...of evidence that may be cited in my defense when I say most people are stupid. And by stupid I mean ignorant, undeducated, and often lacking the ability to soundly reason. But mostly debilitatingly ignorant.

I mean, if you don't know basic facts like in China they speak Chinese, not English(!!), what else are you? And if you can't point to Iraq on a map after three years of occupation there... And I bet a lot of the people in the group that can't point to Iraq are against our involvement there too. Because that's clearly a position they've put a lot of time and effort into reasoning through. I want a drink...

I feel a moment of despare the likes of which only John Derbyshire knows coming on... I mean, we let these kind of people vote? It makes me want to go re-read The Politics and start harping on the glories and benefits of Aristocracy (which is, by definition, rule by 'the best'; wouldn't 'best' be the opposite of the impared people that took the survey I linked above--if you don't get who I mean by this, let me make it clear: 'the worst'.)

"We are doomed, doomed" indeed.
