I've came to realize that people are, notoriously, stupid. Yet the (low) level of their intelligent continues to surprise me. Gun sales increased after election of Democratic President? Seriously? With the sagging economy, housing/financial crisis, and a war that we've been fighting for 8 years for God knows what reason, people really think the first thing on Obama's plate is to ban gun sales?
I am starting to wonder those mutants living in the sewer systems as portrayed in US comics indeed exists... and they can vote too!
