Theme of the Trip

The last Daily Show before I went abroad had this wonderful part where they interview a few people from West Virginia to find out why they voted for Hillary and not for Obama. Now, of course they cherry picked the absolute worst ones, but the absolute worst ones were scary in the absolute worst way. One lady "doesn't like the Hussein thing. I've had enough of Hussein." That quote was our theme. Started making us think of silly ideas, like needing to be qualified to vote or something. There probably should be qualifications to be interviewed on camera as well, because those 3 women were, ugh, honest?

"The most recent Newsweek poll found that 11% of the public still thinks Obama is a Muslim. An NYT/CBS poll put the number at 7%. The Pew Forum found 10%."

However, this is not so bad when considering:

22 percent believe President Bush knew about the 9/11 attacks in advance. (I'm one of these.-ed.)
30 percent believe Saddam had weapons of mass destruction. (Dick Cheney still one of these.)
23 percent believe they’ve been in the presence of a ghost.
18 percent believe the sun revolves around the Earth.
7 percent are medically brain-dead.

Saddam did have wmd, we know we have the reciepts. Of course he did get rid of them 10 years before we invaded.
