Morons

There are just too many morons in the U.S. Is there any hope when we have a sizable number of VOTING citizens that have not only have consumed the Kool-Aid, but they added hallucinogens to the mix? (P.R. Newswire):

More than four years after the attacks of September 11, 2001, many U.S. adults still believe some of the justifications for the invasion of Iraq, which have now been discredited, according to a new Harris Poll. For example:

— Forty-one percent (41%) of U.S. adults believe that Saddam Hussein had “strong links to Al Qaeda.”
— Twenty-two percent (22%) of adults believe that Saddam Hussein “helped plan and support the hijackers who attacked the United States on September 11.”
— Twenty-six percent (26%) of adults believe that Iraq “had weapons of mass destruction when the U.S. invaded.”
— Twenty-four percent (24%) of all adults believe that “several of the hijackers who attacked the United States on September 11 were Iraqis.”

This is almost f*cking hopeless. I have to agree with Jill of Brilliant at Breakfast:

Now, these numbers hovering around 25% are the solid core of Bush supporters — the women who wish they could be his Monica Lewinsky, the Christofascists who think he’s one of them, the people who, like George W. Bush, can’t admit that they were wrong, and those still so fear-crazed about Scary Arab Men that they can’t see they have more to fear from the dictatorial ambitions and the sheer ineptitude of the current Administration. But still — one in four people still believing this is pretty damn scary.
