The Average American

Now, all one has to do is look at modern country musicians (I use those terms lightly) like Toby Keith or pundits like Nancy Grace and see that there must be a large demographic of very dumb Americans. After all, someone has to buy Toby Keith's records and enjoy his sixteen Number 1 hits. Someone is keeping Nancy's ratings up and her contract renewed for additional seasons. I'm going to guess it's not the Harvard grads, or philosophy majors from Berkley. More Americans watch Fox news than PBS. I realize this. Seriously. I do. But, sometimes I forget the extent of the average American's pure ignorance.

Will the Obama educators be successful? I sure hope so, but I'm not holding my breath.
