Ok, so I'm driving to work and I'm listening to Sean Hannity, the conservative talk radio host...I hear something sad. Before I tell you, I want to make it clear that this isn't a Kerry bashing thread...maybe some of his less intelligent supporters..but more of a PEOPLE bashing thread.

Sean had a correspondant (sp?) in Time Square who was RANDOMLY getting people to talk with Sean... Anyway, he would ask them questions about who they were voting for. These people were generally between 17-25...so you'd think they wouldn't be stupid. YOU'D THINK.

First off, Sean was able to convince the first man that the person running against Bush's name was "John Kerney" with his running mate "Stew Ped" (gotta love hannity...unless you're liberal
). Anyway, after convincing him (Well, it didn't take much convincing...all he said was "You mean John Kerny?) he asked who the man was voting for. The man says, "John Kerney". Hannity asks "And name one thing that he stands for that you support". The man has no idea. He just stands there "uh...man I dunno!". Then he (The man) said "You know Bush was havin' dinner the night of 9/11 with bin-ladens brother." Hannity: "Oh really? He was having dinner with Bin-laden!?" The man: "Yeah man...." Hannity: "Where did you hear this" The man: "I dunno...it's on the internet and stuff man..." Hannity: "Well, you got me..I'm changing my vote!" (He was joking, of course)

Anyway, he goes on interviewing more people saying "And what do you think of Kerney's running mate "Stew Ped"? ...One person caught that.. ONE PERSON. He would ask them what our vice presidents name was...I think one person knew that as well. They were all voting for kerry (Except the police men he talked to who knew all the names and answers to his questions), and each one, when asked why they're voting for "Kerny", did not know! THEY DID NOT KNOW! One person knew why..barely. He said "His environmental policies". When asked WHICH policies...they guy didn't know. This is seriously sad. These people didn't even KNOW why they were voting for him! What are we coming to?

I think it all comes down to the fact that normal people don't care about politics. At all. No one cares.

Well, it sounded like they cared... The things they were saying made it sound like they really wanted Kerry to be elected..but they knew nothing about him. If they don't care enough to even know his name, they really shouldn't be voting.

Yeah I agree. If someone is going to vote, they should know enough about the person they are voting for, or at least the name of the person they are voting for.

It is sad considering that you don't even have to be a news hound or hardcore politico to know the names. Even the MTV-heads should know the names, or at least Kerry's name, because it's pounded into them to be anti-Bush and pro-Kerry. They can watch SNL or MAD TV and know the names. This isn't rocket science. It's a sad commentary on our population, especially considering that these people are voting age and could make a difference with their numbers. When I was young, I knew the names of the presidential candidates. But then I was in a somewhat fiery political household. Maybe these people come from families who never watch news or discuss politics at all. They should take the initiative to learn something, the names if nothing else.
