Among Republicans, their base sits upon Joe the Plumber’s porcelain throne of stupid.
Do you believe that America and Africa were once part of the same continent?
——–Yes No Not Sure
GOP 24 .. 47 .. 29
You’d think at least Palin would believe in continental drift, as over time it requires her to calibrate her focus on Russia.
But the symmetry of imbecility is at least consistent:
An early look at a new Public Policy Polling survey finds that among North Carolina Republicans, a stunning 47% think President Obama was not born in United States, while 24% say he was and 29% are not sure.
So, in one state at least, the exact same numbers of Republicans do not believe in geology or nationality. I suppose I could blame Art Garfunkel, but I have a more likely suspect.
