In one poll, only 62 percent of respondents 'could correctly identify what issue Roe v. Wade was about. Even those who have some understanding of a law often disagree about its meaning, so we don't know what people mean when they say they do or don't approve of Roe v. Wade. What do they think it says? Abortion opponents claim Roe guarantees legal abortion more or less at will through all nine months of pregnancy because, while it permits states to ban it during the last trimester, it mandates an exception for the life and health of the mother-that supposedly interstate-highway-broad exception mentioned by Paul Ryan. This is what abortion opponents are referring to when they say Roe permits abortion the day before birth. In The Party of Death, the conservative writer Ramesh Ponnuru claims most people don't know about the health exception: They think Roe makes it impossible to get a third-trimester abortion except to save the woman's life.26 Would more people support Roe if they knew how hard it is to obtain a late-second-trimester abortion in most of the country, let alone a third-trimester one? At present, only four doctors are known to perform abortions in 'the last three months of pregnancy.27 If people knew how few abortions are performed after twenty-four weeks, and how serious are the problems that lead women to seek them out, would more of them support Roe? Or would more people reject Roe if they knew about the health exception, because, like Paul Ryan, they think 'health' is just an excuse? We don't know.'.

New Rule: Just because a country elects a smart president doesn't make it a smart country. A couple of weeks ago, I was asked on CNN if I thought Sarah Palin could get elected president, and I said I hope not, but I wouldn't put anything past this stupid country. Well, the station was flooded with emails, and the twits hit the fan. And you could tell that these people were really mad, because they wrote entirely in CAPITAL LETTERS!!! Worst of all, Bill O'Reilly refuted my contention that this is a stupid country by calling me a pinhead, which (a) proves my point, and (b) is really funny coming from a doody-face like him. Now, before I go about demonstration how, sadly, easy it is to prove the dumbness that's dragging us down, let me just say that ignorance has life-and-death consequences. On the eve of the Iraq War, seventy percent of Americans thought Saddam Hussein was personally involved in 9/11. Six years later, thirty-four percent still do. Or look at the health-care debate: At a recent town hall meeting in South Carolina, a man stood up and told his congressman to "keep your government hands off my Medicare, " which is kind of like driving cross-country to protest highways. This country is like a college chick after two Long Island iced teas: We can be talked into anything, like wars, and we can be talked out of anything, like health care. We should forget the town halls, and replace them with study halls. Listen to some of these stats: A majority of Americans cannot name a single branch of government, or explain what the Bill of Rights is. Twenty-four percent could not name the country America fought in the Revolutionary War. More than two-thirds of Americans don't know what's in Roe v. Wade. Two-thirds don't know what the Food and Drug Administration does. Some of this stuff you should be able to pick up simply by being alive. You know, like the way the Slumdog kid knew about cricket. Not here. Nearly half of Americans don't know that states have two senators, and more than half can't name their congressman. And among Republican governors, only three got their wife's name right on the first try. People bitch and moan about taxes and spending, but they have no idea what their government spends money on. The average voter thinks foreign aid consumes more twenty-four percent of our budget. It's actually less than one percent. A third of Republicans believe Obama is not a citizen ad a third of Democrats believe that George Bush had prior knowledge of the 9/11 attacks, which is an absurd sentence, because it contains the words "Bush" and "knowledge." Sarah Palin says she would never apologize for America. Even though a Gallup poll say eighteen percent of us think the sun revolves around the earth. No, they're not stupid. They're interplanetary mavericks. And I haven't even brought up religion. But here's one fun fact I'll leave you with: Did you know only about half of Americans are aware that Judaism is an older religion than Christianity? That's right, half of America looks at books called the Old Testament and the New Testament and cannot figure out which came first. I rest my case.
