OK, so 49 percent of Republicans believe that a non-existent organization heisted the 2012 election for the Kenyan Barack Obama, and 44 percent are loosely pondering a vote for Mississippi's Jefferson Davis in the next one. OK. But the Ignorance Index gets a bipartisan boost from PPP's latest finding that nearly 4 in 10 Americans draw an unopinionated blank on 'Simpson-Bowles'--perhaps the most talked-about and hotly debated fiscal proposal since Alexander Hamilton's 'First Report on Public Credit'--while an astounding 25 percent of Americans lean favorably or unfavorably toward 'Panetta-Burns,' which doesn't exist any more than the election-heisting ACORN, and, in fact, never did.
We used to say, "You just can't make this stuff up." We were wrong.
