Today on Tommy T’s Obsession with the Freeperati – Roamin’ Scandals edition

Good morning, everyone!

I see there’s quite a few drums of concentrated stupid lined up in the staging area with “Ben Gazzara” stamped all over them. Let’s suit up and investigate, shall we?

Gallup: Americans’ Attention to IRS, Benghazi Stories Below Average

Gallup ^

Slim majorities of Americans are very or somewhat closely following
the situations involving the Internal Revenue Service (54%) and the
congressional hearings on the attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi,
Libya, and its aftermath (53%) — comparatively low based on historical
measures of other news stories over the last two decades.

results are based on a May 14-15 Gallup poll. Despite extensive news
coverage of these stories in recent days, the level of attention being
paid to each is below the average 60% of Americans who have closely
followed more than 200 news stories Gallup has measured over the past
several decades. Additionally, Americans appear to be paying almost
exactly the same levels of attention to both stories, despite the
relative newness of the IRS story during the time in which this survey
was in the field.

Republicans More Tuned In

are much more likely to say they are following these news stories
closely than are independents or in particular Democrats. There is a
21-percentage-point gap between Republicans and Democrats in terms of
following the Benghazi story closely, and a 27-point gap on the IRS

You know, if you don’t provide something at least as interesting as “Swamp People”, folks are apt to change the channel. Just sayin’.

The question is not how much attention the sheeple are giving to
IRS, Benghazi, imo, but how much attention the corrupt, Obama-protecting
media is giving to IRS, Benghazi.

Let’s look at this (Saturday) morning’s headlines, shall we?
“Shots fired at Cannes send actors scrambling”.
Hmmm – maybe FOX has something?
“Powerball at 16 million”
“U.S. slams Russia for sending Syria anti-ship missiles”
“Missing men mystery in US boomtown oil fields”
Damned corrupt, Obama-loving FOX news!

Not surprising. I mean, they did vote for obama — twice.

Let’s see what advice oberstgruppenfuhrer Gallup has for the Freeperati, shall we?

I think more folks are paying attention than we actually know.

Stupidity AI

To: brownsfan

American proved their stupidity in 2008, reaffirmed it in 2012. I
truly believe Ronald Reagan would have had trouble beating 0bama last
year with the dumbing down of the American public, and the 24/7
propaganda effort by the socialist run media/entertainment complex.
