The most foolish American

5 04 2007

From Crooks and Liars: For April Fools Day, Fox News’ Phoenix affiliate had an item about a poll that asked people who the most foolish American was. The answer, according to the anchors, was Britney Spears, who (let’s be honest) is pretty foolish.

But check out the screen grab of the poll results. Britney got 33%, topping Paris Hilton on 12%. Lounging at the bottom of the list, however, is one George W. Bush, on 40%.

If you can, check out the actual video up at Crooks and Liars. You’ll hear the cognitive dissonance as the anchors run down the list and have to struggle between the script in their heads and the numbers on the screen. Classic.
