Current College Grads = Functional Morons

It's far worse than you thought:
Nearly 10% of college graduates surveyed in a poll believe Judith Sheindlin, aka "Judge Judy," serves on the Supreme Court. It also found that almost 60% of college graduates couldn't correctly identify a requirement for ratifying a constitutional amendment and 40% of college graduates didn't know that Congress has the power to declare war. Additionally, the poll revealed that less than 50% of college graduates surveyed know that presidential impeachments are tried before the U.S. Senate.

Your Say

Luckily the "The Devolution of Stupid People: Joe Rogan's Classic Standup Rant" right next door pretty well sums it up.
Maybe the college students just got mixed up and went to collage class instead. It would explain some of the crap that is heard from them

You could probably say the same thing for all citizens over the age of 18.

People don't stop being stupid when they leave college, they become more so.

Born stupid, live stupid, die stupid.

Not only do the children (those below 70) not know the venue in which impeachment is played out, I would wager that fewer than 2% of the little darlings know that Clinton was in fact impeached, and that Nixon was in fact not impeached - rather than the other way around as they believe.

The intention of impeachment is of course to cause public embarrassment and shame, lending encouragement to do the right thing and resign. Richard Nixon took the hint; Bill Clinton, congenitally unaware of embarrassment and shame, didn't.
