When you put this video together with the Howard Stern video from before the election. (shown below) You can't deny that the media did was completely bias in it's coverage.
This is a poll taken of Obama voters. The only thing they seemed to know was that Sarah Palin had a pregant kid and she wore expensive clothes. They also had a hard time separating Palin from Tina Fey.

And 86.9 % thought that Palin said that she could see Russia from her "house," even though that was Tina Fey who said that!!
Only 2.4% got at least 11 correct.
Only .5% got all of them correct. (And we "gave" one answer that was technically not Palin, but actually Tina Fey)
Here's the deal it's everyone's right to vote. However if you don't know what party is in control of Congress, or who is the Senate Majority Leader or who's Speaker of the House just stay home. If you don't care enought to know what's going on before Election Day, don't decide to care on Election Day. We really don't need people that don't understand the issues, or that don't even know what the issues are deciding the election. Maybe in 2012 we will actually have voters that know something about what's going on before they vote.
