Proud Americans

I’m not a huge fan of You Tube, but felt a compulsion to send people there to watch the genius of the guys at CNNNN.

  1. I hope no-one thinks I think this is what all Americans are like. And yes, I’m sure this is only a tiny fraction of the people that CNNNN asked questions to. The correct answers would have been discarded (those answers wouldn’t have been funny). But I have met many people (from many places, but most of them are, in fact, American) who are genuinely as ignorant as this, and I’m sure that these people truly screwed up – they had no idea. And for adults, being asked those types of questions, that is just shameful!

  2. Jay Leno on the Tonight often has clips like these on his tv show and it’s really sad how many people really don’t know the answers. Sometimes he shows them pictures of our president and they can’t even name who he is.
    Isn’t this a shame?

    I personally think the people with the right answers are edited out of the clips, but when I took a job at a factory (just because I always wondered what it would be like to work in one), I soon discovered that the workers didn’t keep up with any kind of politics or world events and didn’t even know who President Bill Clinton was until the Monica Luinski scandal. Unfortunately I must admit that most Americans don’t care about politics or world events and don’t bother to know anything about them. I hope that I haven’t offended anyone with this comment but sadly this is true.

  3. I’m sure there’s a small percentage of Americans who are that ignorant of current affairs, but the majority are not, thank heavens. I’m sure this was just supposed to be funny, and it is, but it’s sad to think that anyone might interpret this as a norm for the average American. There are people like this in every country.
    P.S. Who was Bill Clinton???? (I’m kidding, I’m kidding!)
