  1. That’s nothing.
    I used to listen to Howard Stern (yes, I have no taste) before, um, budget cuts took effect. He would send his staff out to do man in the street interviews.
    2008:
    “Who are you voting for?
    “Obama.”
    “Do you agree with hm about making homosexuality illegal[or bombing Iran, or deporting illegals]?”
    “Well, um . . . yeah . . . it’s the right thing to do”

    After the election:
    “Did you vote yesterday?”
    “No.”
    “Who would you have voted for?”
    “Obama.”
    “Are you aware he lost the election by ONE vote — McCain won.”
    “[expletive]!’

    Can’t we bring back literacy tests?
    Scratch that, literacy isn’t the problem.
    How about a quiz to ensure voters know the candidates and the duties of each office. I’d accept any general in-the-ballpark answer.

  2. Sad and funny at the same time. I laughed out loud on the ONE vote win remark.
    Basic literacy test- a great idea; however, we live in a nation where a simple requirement to identify oneself at the poll as a legitimate registered voter is objectionable to many.

  3. I’m beginning to think a civics/political literacy/current affairs test should be required of all voters. If it were, it is certain Obama would not be president.
