Yeah, That Sounds Right: College Students in D.C. Can't Name a Single Senator

This annoys the hell out of me. Not only are these kids in college, they're at American University in the nation's capital. The thing is that a lot of these students go to American because they have political/governmental aspirations (but couldn't get into Georgetown).

It gets worse: a bunch of them didn't know how many Senators per state there are.

I'm seriously ready for the zombie apocalypse.

3 I'm not sure that will work. Zombies want brains unless they are islamic. Then they only want to kill.
These children that are now in University, do Not have any brains. That also explains why they want to be in government.

4 When the zombie apocalypse comes, these will be the first victims since they will first need to form a committee to decide what action they will take and inevitably it will be they decide to hold counseling sessions for the zombies to reason with them so they can see how their actions are affecting others.

Problem is, once they are attacked and become zombies themselves they will become a great danger since no-one will be able to see any difference in them hence family and friends become easy prey.

5 The reason they don't know how many senators there are from each state? Because most senators represent Washington DC, and not the state that 'elected' them. Senators should be elected by the state legislatures as they used to be about a hundred years ago.

6 Hey! They don't need to know any Senator's names! All they need to know is how to 'hump grind' with their intimate partner - the elites take care of the heavy lifting, right? The closest they'll ever get to their Senator is to have his private parts in their mouth - or up their butt!

7 I have always said that college people are among the most sociologically stupid people on Earth. Most of them are dumber than jungle bunnies in the most remote parts of the Congo. I have no respect for most of them.

8 This isn't the fault of the kids. Look at what they aren't being taught in elementary, middle, and high school.

If they start popping up at college campuses, the rest of will be safe. They feed on brains, so they will starve before being able to get to the rest of us. ;)

12 Dumbing down the populace about how their government works and what real rights AND DUTIES they have is all part of the commie plan. The whole 'acamdemic' institution needs a significant cleaning out from top to bottom of the un-educators that fester in it now.

Part of the original mandate of public education (how many of these tards in the article even attended that ruined system?) was to have voters who could make EDUCATED decisions about our government's operation.

13 Do these man on the street interviews ever show any appreciable number of people who obviously can tie their shoelaces? Do modern kids have egos the size of the Nimitz and want to appear on YouTube in videos?

And you expect them to give correct answers? Heck, when confronted by such silly questions I'd give outlandish answers, too, just for the heck of it. (I have been known to lead pollsters on merry little chases into extreme mendacity. I resent their intrusion on my time. For a consulting fee of $100/hour or fraction thereof I'd give honest answers.)

Stuff like this and stuff about Obama ... same wreasty shit ?
