Sometimes I wonder why I even try . . . .

Our grand Idiocracy:

By ALAN FRAM, Associated Press Writer Alan Fram, Associated Press Writer – 46 mins ago

WASHINGTON – Americans increasingly are convinced — incorrectly — that President Barack Obama is a Muslim, and a growing number are thoroughly confused about his religion.

Nearly one in five people, or 18 percent, said they think Obama is Muslim, up from the 11 percent who said so in March 2009, according to a poll released Thursday. The proportion who correctly say he is a Christian is down to just 34 percent.

And the lament of Thomas Paine echoes in my brain:

"These are the times that try men's souls."

I wonder how Paine would have dealt with the challenge of living in a nation of idiots?

Sigh . . .
