In light of the hit TV show “Are You Smarter Than a Fifth Grader” (most people aren’t, apparently), I’d like to propose a new reality television show: “Are You Smarter Than an Elected Official.”
Based on this news article I came across (ht: Challies), apparently the general public is smarter than elected officials when it comes to civic and government issues (i.e. American history, legislative processes, economics, etc.). Now if that’s not troubling, I don’t know what is. Is it any surprise our country is in the state that it is?
