This morning, while perusing my blogroll I came across a link to this civics quiz, which I then proceeded to take.
I got a 75%.
Ever the f#$%ing C-student. I am comforted to know, however, that most of the questions I got wrong I had the correct answer as part of my final two. Yay for mediocrity!
I guess I shouldn't feel too bad about myself. According to the text leading into the quiz, average citizens (2,508 in all) scored just 49% on the test and college educators 55%. Even more damning, according my source link, elected officials were also given the test and scored just 44%. Seriously, WTF?
Edit: Here's the source story at Yahoo News.
