                     Idiots for Obama--the Evidence
                                    
The video at bottom is merely anecdotal evidence of the general level of
 ignorance among Obama supporters but it is backed by a scientific poll
 conducted by the respected polling firm, Zogby International. Below is
         an excerpt from a news release on the Zogby web site. 
                                    
                                    
                                        
         Ninety-four percent of Obama voters correctly identified Palin
        as the candidate with a pregnant teenage daughter, 86% correctly
          identified Palin as the candidate associated with a $150,000
        wardrobe purchased by her political party, and 81% chose McCain
        as the candidate who was unable to identify the number of houses
        he owned. When asked which candidate said they could "see Russia
        from their house," 87% chose Palin, although the quote actually
           is attributed to Saturday Night Live's Tina Fey during her
         portrayal of Palin during the campaign. An answer of "none" or
        "Palin" was counted as a correct answer on the test, given that
        the statement was associated with a characterization of Palin. 
                                        
         Obama voters did not fare nearly as well overall when asked to
          answer questions about statements or stories associated with
        Obama or Biden -- 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. 
                                        
           In addition to questions regarding statements and scandals
        associated with the campaigns, the 12-question, multiple-choice
          survey also included a question asking which political party
        controlled both houses of Congress leading up to the election --
            57% of Obama voters were unable to correctly answer that
              Democrats controlled both the House and the Senate.
                                    
 John Ziegler, who commissioned the poll and produced the video, makes
hay with the results on www.howobamagotelected.com. FWIW, I suspect that
McCain voters are, on average, every bit as idiotic as the average Obama
voter and Ziegler actually tried to commission a Zogby poll to test that
                  idea but Zogby reportedly refused.
