    Parts of the right wing have become so disconnected from reality that it's almost comical. It quite literally alters their senses. You've all seen how some of the more rapid right-wingers will insist that Michelle Obama is a giant fat cow. They hate the President of the United States so much that it freaking alters their visual perception of his wife.
    Hey remember, republican math skills are 2nd to none. Just reference their polls from the 2012 election


    .....Oh wait

    No need to make this all controversial, just discuss it.

    Not coincidentally, liberals now outnumber conservatives and are winning more and more elections without any intellectual merit to their platform whatsoever. Campaign strategies have to be designed at a third-grade level these days.

    Dark, scary days ahead with this worthless, brainless voting bloc running things.
    I need to know if the Americans were able to use their computers or calculators in this test?

    If not I believe the results.

    Have you ever bought something is a store when the cash register was not working. The blank look on the cashiers face when trying to give change is funny.

    America’s Worst-Educated States

    10. Oklahoma 7% black
    9. Tennessee 16% black
    8. Indiana 9% black
    7. Nevada 8% black
    6. Alabama 26% black
    5. Louisiana 32% black
    4. Kentucky 7% black
    3. Arkansas 15% black
    2. Mississippi 37% black
    1. West Virginia 3% black

    These numbers are similar on the best educated states as well. My point is this is not about race as you were implying.
