See, that's why I can't get offended when people say that Americans are stupid. It's not accurate for most, but it's certainly a fair assumption. Our media showcases and legitimizes the stupidest among us. We have Sarah Palin, who people love because they find her so "relatable." We have politicians who don't believe in evolution and think creationism should be taught in our public schools--as well as believe in abstinence only sex education--not only being engaged as if their opinions are valid, but actually winning elections; we have the Teabaggers all over the news; we have FoxNews.
