Inescapable Logic Reveals A Probable Truth

CNN regularly conducts an informal poll on their web site. The results don’t precisely reflect a national consensus since only people who visit the web site are counted, but the survey results are usually interesting. And occasionally fascinating.

A few days ago, people were asked if (a) they thought men had really walked on the moon or (b) did they think the whole thing was a giant hoax.

You may be as surprised as I was to learn that 14 percent of CNN viewers don’t believe Neil Armstrong really went to the moon and that his “giant leap for mankind” actually took place on an elaborate movie set in a secret warehouse somewhere.

Then, in a moment of illumination, it occurred to me that just about the same number of Americans actually think Sarah Palin is qualified to be President of the United States.

Gotta be the same people, dontcha think?
