Avert your eyes, it’s politics!

But too good not to mention it. Today’s Best of the web reports on a poll of Obama voters:

A new poll from Zogby International shows Obama voters to be shockingly ignorant of political trivia involving their own candidate:

83% failed to correctly answer that Obama had won his first election by getting all of his opponents removed from the ballot, and 88% did not correctly associate Obama with his statement that his energy policies would likely bankrupt the coal industry. Most (56%) were also not able to correctly answer that Obama started his political career at the home of two former members of the Weather Underground.

Nearly three quarters (72%) of Obama voters did not correctly identify Biden as the candidate who had to quit a previous campaign for President because he was found to have plagiarized a speech, and nearly half (47%) did not know that Biden was the one who predicted Obama would be tested by a generated international crisis during his first six months as President. . . .

57% of Obama voters were unable to correctly answer that Democrats controlled both the House and the Senate.

Wait, it gets worse. The test was multiple choice!

    The reason for these numbers….the main stream media does not report on anything negative about their messiah.

    BTW, it’s really starting to look like a 3rd Clinton term…

    Chief of Staff, Att’y Gen’l, Sec State, HHS Head – all Clintonistas.

    not related but – while I love the picture in your header I find it terribly non-user friendly to have the first 50% of the screen taken up with a non usable space. Could you slim the whole thing down so that we can see more of the text “above the fold”?
