Overheard On The Street

Guy #1: So whaddya think about this Obama guy?
Guy #2: We shoulda nuked Afghanistan. Why are we still there?
Guy #1: No, no, no. I said "Obama." He's a black guy. He's running for Secretary of State or something.
Guy #2: He ain't never gonna beat Colin Powell.

It's times like this when I'm reminded that for every person who is into politics, watches the news and reads up on political blogs, there are hundreds of chuckleheads like these guys walking around.

Maybe we should put something together like an "Adopt a Chucklehead" program where people who have an inkling of what's going on in the world identify their least politically knowledgeable friends and bring them to a roundtable discussion or something...
