Sometimes you wonder if pollsters ask themselves “Is this an insulting thing to ask people?” before dialing up the opinionated American electorate. But no, not insulting, just revealing: “Given a choice of three options, just 24% of voters can correctly identify the cap-and-trade proposal as something that deals with environmental issues. A slightly higher number (29%) believe the proposal has something to do with regulating Wall Street while 17% think the term applies to health care reform. A plurality (30%) have no idea.” Hmm, looks to us like a majority (76%) “have no idea.” The other 24% are just queers. [Rasmussen via Yglesias]

  1. I thought it was level four of that learn-to-put-a-condom-on-using-your-mouth game. No wonder folks stopped accepting my invitations to games night…

  2. Who cares what a cap and queer is, or whatever the fuck you said. All I care about is who’s dog is that!?!?! He is SO CUTE!!!

  3. I thought it had to do with the psychedelic mushroom market. Which reminds me, I’ve gotta see a guy about some T-Bills.

  4. [re=313652]Custerwolf[/re]: That’s self-defense, LAPD (Ramparts division) style. “The suspect was alive and pointing a gun at me — just not at the same time.”

  5. Dems make up limp wristed, dumb ass names for their bills. Repugs make up nice descriptive names. Cap and Trade? What the F*** are they talking about. They must try to use the word “death” in everything. Call it the “Keep all Americans from choking to death” Bill.

    If they had a bill called “Pass this bill NOW or all your children will die” it would have been a law now. Instead they pull something weak sounding like “S CHIP” out of their ass and expect us to pay attention.


  6. I thought cap and trade was something you did with ugly women at wife-swapping parties. You put a cap over her face so someone is willing to trade his milf for your dog-faced skank.

  7. As Sir Winston Churchill once observed, “The best argument against Democracy is a ten-minute conversation with an average voter.” Or did he say “five-minute?” Damn. Either way, I miss the old Monarchy.

  8. I thought cap n trade was what those teenagers were doing when they get to school and change their outfits with friends so their parents didn’t know what they wore at school? I could’ve sworn I saw it on an episode of Degrassi.

  9. If you’re going to ask if people have no idea, you should at least come up with some better bullshit answers, like Outsourcing the Baseball Cap Industry to China, or something to do with tin-foil hats, or those pointy german military helmets (typically worn by those in motorcycle side cars).
