Spreading the blame

Well we've discussed spreading the wealth, and how Obama got elected. I thought this would shed a little light on the systemic problem.

The basic point is that in a test of basic civics and history elected officials fared worse than the general public, which also failed.

US officials flunk test of American history, economics, civics - Yahoo! News

Civic Literacy Report - Civics Quiz

Here is a link to the actual quiz, Im about to take it.
It is certainly a shame so many Americans lack basic knowledge of civics and American history, I'm not excluding myself though, I'm definately guilty as well.

87.88 (I flat missed a few but some of the questions I have issue with the wording, like the balanced budget question where the correct answer isn't necessarily true for a variety of reasons.)
