My disappointment with the country in light of the news that 18% of Americans are somehow misinformed enough to believe that Barack Obama is a Muslim has been tempered slightly with the realization that in 1999, 18% of Americans also believed that the sun revolves around the earth.  I can only hope it’s the same people.
