Idiot America: How Stupidity Became a Virtue in the Land of the Free
Review Date: 12/4/2010


How intelligence has taken on a negative connotation in the U.S. plus what makes people believe incredible and obviously wrong "facts" about the world. Evolution vs. creationism is a large part of this book and you will be amazed at what people will believe. It is scary and disturbing but at the same time funny.
