The idiocracy of America

A recent poll for Newsweek magazine found that 29 per cent of Americans couldn't name their vice-president, 40 per cent didn't know that America fought Germany and Japan in World War II, 67 per cent couldn't identify capitalism as America's economic system and 73 per cent didn't know that concern about Communism was the cause of the Cold War.

So when all these letter-writers say that those who voted for Yingluck are "ignorant", I wonder how many of those writers come from the US, which is hands down the most moronic country on this planet!
