    Better than 75% on your little quiz test. Not bad considering I don't even follow the news much anymore. Too slanted these days. Don't want to run the risk that I'll see something about obamalamadingdong (god I love that nick name). Already sick of seeing him added to some of these dang debt relief and health insurance commercials.

    Wonder if he's getting royalties off of them ... wouldn't surprise me the (beep)..

    Yeah I didn't think that one full through. I'll edit it out

    I posted them because Benning said he didn't know what he missed.
