Kill me now.

Along the same lines, check this out:

civics quiz

After you do the quiz, look at the table to see the percentage of citizens v. the percentage of self-identified elected officials who got each question right.

I would have ACED this test! No doubt about it!

Well, sure, Monnie.

This is about people who just sit back and let whatever info the media feel like parceling out, wash over them. They don't dig in or drill down or ask any questions. I don't have a problem with people disagreeing with me or drawing different conclusions from the same data, but dang. The chick who thought the Republicans must be in control of Congress because the President is a Republican - how can she be such a dingbat? And her vote counts equally with yours or mine.

Dingbats are the norm. Folks like you and me? ESPECIAL!

I'm cool with that.

Have I told you how much I missed you? Like...this election took you away but I'm soooooooooooooooo glad you're back cuz I really, REALLY missed you.

Like...REALLY. Just because our politics aren't the same doesn't mean there is not REAL, GENUINE affection. I miss you kiddo and am eager to know how you're doing. As always, IRREGARDLESS (that's my fave non-word word...ROFL!) of your stance on stem cell research :).

You are so sweet. Thanks for that.
