Makes You Proud To Be An American

Here is a short video where a guy acts like a news representative and heads out to see how smart we all are. He asks the controversial question of who should we attack next on the war against terror. Listen to some of the very uneducated answers.

CNNN is an Australian satire show thats a bit like the Daily Show but aimed firmly at CNN.

    It pains me, truly, madly, deeply to think that there are people that stupid out there. And that they probably vote too.

    You should have given your readers a hint that the country getting the pin put in it was in fact Australia. A portion of your readership probably missed that key fact. See this link for a writeup of a similar show.

    Talking to Americans

    I’m comfortable in my assumption that most of the ‘buddha crowd is bright enough to catch that point.

  • Pragmatist

    I dont know who should be more upset, France and Cuba, or Australia.  I say attack from the north!!

  • fealty2dahriyah

    do we need to bring up prior examples of how buddhanians are not that bright?

    Excluding you? Go for it.

    Thank god we’re no longer leaving children behind.  I think what’s really scary is that those people went to school when they still taught geography.

    Leno does stuff like this all the time, but it isn’t really indicative of any statistical distribution since they throw out the right answers.

  • fealty2dahriyah

    once america reduces the rest of the world to our stature of mental midgetness, we will rule the simpletons w/ an gold fist

  • Shadow Stalker

    Can the fist be cornflower blue?

  • The Good Reverend

    I agree.  While I certainly don’t have a lot of faith in the education of our populace, I wonder how many people got the countries right and didn’t make the show’s cut.

  • Souped_up_on_Jihad

    So, putting aside the fact that most people put the pin in Australia, what is the correct answer to the question posed? Samolia perhaps?

  • Chief

    Ahh, pretty AND dumb girls. Just my type.

  • Gray Ghost

    Hey hey!  It’s these people that voted!  It’s THESE people that voted due to morals and ethics!  It’s these people that can’t feed their families, but still want to allow the church to dictate what your children learn.

    So be nice.

    Way to paint with a broad brush there, Ghost. It’s not logic/intelligence on one end of the scale and morals/ignorance on the other…though it’s easy to see why some would love for it to be that simple.

    Regarding the video, what a bunch of idiots! I say invade from the South…they’ll never see it coming.

  • Gray Ghost

    Glittering generalities, man.  Makes life a heck of a lot easier then considering each individual as you meet ‘em.

  • fealty2dahriyah

    isn’t that how we like it here? it sure makes me feel better about myself knowing everyone else is the complete idiot and not me.

  • redkillmachine

    Wow. That was sad.

  • fealty2dahriyah

    do we have a new friend??

  • redkillmachine

    who? me? cheese

  • fealty2dahriyah

    what are you some arsenal hating freak/? what’s manchester you thing?
