Mike Huckacockroach & Glove Romney

Well, almost all the results are in from today's US presidential primaries (except for the under-reported Democrats Abroad primary) and they are pretty clear. Obama continued his weekend winning streak today in the Potomac region (Virginia, Maryland, and D.C.), picking up approximately 63 more delegates, with Hillary getting 28. Since the Republican contests were winner-take-all, McCain's sweep of the three contests means he'll be getting an 89 delegate boost, further securing his position as the presumptive GOP nominee. With all this talk about how the in-the-know pundits in the Capitol region would be choosing their candidates and voting, it's interesting to look at the flip-side: How much do average Americans know about the candidates and how do they choose between them?

Jay Leno investigated:

Evidently they don't know much more than your average resident of Beijing, China:

What's the moral? H.L. Mencken said it even better than Leno: "Democracy is the theory that the common people know what they want, and deserve to get it good and hard."

It seems it is boiling down to something like choosing between the NDP and Greens. Knowing that the hard Left moonbat George Soros has been funding McCain since 2001, that is enough to know this guy ain't no conservative/republican. So an election between him and the no substance Obama is enough to tune out completely.
