I agree with you on the Gettysburg Address ex.
It is THE most important speech that captures what makes this country and our values great.

As for Taxes question, I missed that one also for the same reason you stated.

By the way -- it's a good thing it wasn't a math test. I meant 145 years, not 125. I could stick with the 125 because it coincides with the end of the Reagan era, but I'll give the nation credit for still thinking fondly about Lincoln's words -- even if we disagree about pretty much everything else.

We're just honest here!! neener!

You accuse us of getting distorted facts from Fox, geez... take a look around Kos or Huffington Post can't get any further left than that! You need to stay away from those sites - they're doing a number on your head!! I suggest watching some Fox to balance it all out. Yes

There's no way I can believe Civet got an 87.8. He doesn't understand the importance of the Gettysburg address, can't figure out what "surrender" means, and doesn't seem to have a lot of depth behind the rhetoric.

The only way I can see his score going that high would be if he pulled up Wikipedia in another window while he took the test.

Another Perspective

Another Perspective on who conducted the poll, why they asked the questions they did, and why.
