How stupid can Sarah Palin be? (Sarah Palin gets pranked)

Seriously, not knowing the Bush Doctrine, not being able to name a single newspaper, not being able to name another Supreme Court decision other than Roe v. Wade, not knowing that Africa was a continent and not a country, not knowing that the bailout isn't about the healthcare system........but this........this has just got to be the mother of all cherries on top:

For someone who can see Russia from her house, she can also see Canada. So, assuming her skills in foreign policy would include working with Canada, she apparently has no idea who the Prime Minister of Canada is. In this prank call, the pranksters says that the Prime Minister of Canada is Stef Carse, who in actuality is a pop singer from Quebec. The impersonator also says he has been closely following the U.S. election through his special advisor "Johnny Hallyday," the French pop icon, and Palin makes no connection. In fact, I'm flabbergasted that she got duped for nearly six minutes.......Oh Sarah.....The Idiot to Nowhere.......

Classic Carlson

I'm taking psychology this semester and participated in a Personality and Online Social Networking study for some extra credit points (Yes, they still exist in college!). A part of the study involved a simple 7 minute chat period where two participants just try to get to know each other while the interaction is filmed. Here's what transpired:

Me: "Hey, my name is _____."
Girl: "Hey, nice to meet you. I'm _____."
Me: "So what year are you?"
Girl: "I'm a sophomore in CBS. What about you?"
Me: "I'm a junior in Carlson."
Girl: "Oh really? My roommate is in Carlson."
Me: "How does she like it there?"
Girl: "Oh she loves it. I never see her do any homework. All I see her doing is typing these emails."
Girl: "I asked my roommate why she's writing so many emails, and she said it's not emailing, it's called networking."
Girl,while rolling her eyes: "It seems like all they do is networking at Carlson."

I nearly fell off my chair laughing. Oh Carlson......Anywhere but here
