I Won't Get Mike Tomasky's Vote
Ouch! I knew the answers to just 13 of the 25 questions in Michael Tomasky's Jeopardy-style quiz covering topics he thinks presidential contenders ought to know about. (Meanwhile, Matthew Yglesias bemoans the fact that he knew "only" nineteen answers. Nobody likes a braggart, Matt, especially one who disguises his bragging as self-criticism--it's just soooo transparent.)
Happily, I'm not the only person who struggled with these tricky questions (as evidenced by the flood of criticism Tomasky has received for posting the quiz). Just call me a down-home populist, proud of my non-elite (i.e. sketchy) education. And pass the pork rinds.
