What Good’s A Half-Assed Jackass?

I wish everyone could have watched the NBC game show, 1 vs 100, last evening. It told you all you need to know about Democrats.

I can't go into the rules here, except to say that this is the best show of it's kind on TV, and the only watchable show that's ever contained Bob Saget.

So there were with, I think, 77 out of the original 100 of the "mob" left in the round, and the question was a ridiculously simple one. At least I'm sure you'll think it simple:

"The jackass is the symbol for what party, Republican, Democrat, Libertarian."

Me: "You watch, an unexpectedly large amount of people will get this wrong."

36 got it wrong

Out of 77.

Almost half.


Me: "How many would you have guessed?"

Wife: "About ten."

Me: "That's not the worst of it……. a large majority of those who got it wrong would identify with the Donkeycrats – – and these idiots all think they know more than the average idiot."

Wife: "They probably do."

I mean, anyone could answer that by reflex: so a Republican would say, Democrat, and a Democrat, it turns out, would say, Republican, thus demonstrating the appropriateness of the symbol.

About tedwest

A longtime veteran of comedy and political forums, I decided that I needed a more restful venue because... well... I finally hate everybody. Except my wife that is... and my ex-wife.. and... no, that's about it. I lead about as simple a life as one can, preferring activities that include anything that doesn't involve going out and seeing YOU! And I particularly enjoy what I call "Get the Bitch" movies on Lifetime. You know the ones where the intended victim finally does something so incredibly stupid that she forfeits her right to live, and from that moment on you're rooting for the stalker. Of course, it rarely works out the way you want, but when it does, the feeling you get is... well, there's nothing else like it, other than, maybe, eating chocolate chip cookies. Oh, and I'm proudly anti-wildlife, both foreign and domestic, and anti-environment - especially foreign environments. I think Howard Stern put it best when he said, "If fifty percent of the population died tomorrow, I can live with that." And I feel the same about the other fifty percent, so together, we've pretty much got it all covered.

    Sweet. You are the only post on Vox with the tag nincompoop.

  2. These people should have their voting rights rescinded. This is only going to get worse. Next week, there is a show starting that pits adults vs 5th graders. Can't wait to watch some more idiot adults act like the fools they are.

    Here's a review that you might enjoy. I thought it was going to be adults vs the kids, but that doesn't appear to be the case. Still, in showcasing adult ignorance, the show has a chance to be both fun and useful.
    Now I wonder how they determine who will be on it? It seems to me that the dummer you are, the better shot you have at making some money off your stupidity – not helpful.
