I believe that buying Al Franken's book, _Rush Limbaugh is a Big Fat
Idiot and Other Observations_ is the best way to get the message across
about how many people in this country are *not* dittoheads.

Franken cites a study by the Annenberg School of Commmunication which
showed that people who listen to Rush not only are the least
well-informed people, but that they rate themselves as the *most*
well-informed.  Franken says, "...why would people so woefully lacking in
the basic facts of an issue think they were the best informed?  Social
scientists call the phenomenon 'pseudo-certainy.'  I call it 'being a
fucking moron.'"
