    The New York Post has it right -- most adults function at a third grade level.
    I don't know about a third grade bit, but I do remember seeing a report some time ago that most adults' reading skills (comprehension and vocabulary) top out at a 10th grade level. This holds true for many who've attended college, too.

          As a news producer, I was accustomed to writing at an eighth grade level so my viewers wouldn't be confused by big words and get distracted.

                This week in Republicans. Got some good ones today.

                1. Lindsey Graham is kicking the tires on a Presidential run. Couldn't ask for a guy more afraid of Islam then that one. He's got the fraidy cat vote locked up.
                2. Read today that the GOP is now convinced that if they don't fund the Department of Homeland Security this time the Democrats will be blamed. Good luck with that Bone Man and Itch.
                3. This exchange I read in the local newspaper between Franken and Grassley is priceless. Grassley being the new head of the GOP Judiciary committee.


                In early February, Franken walked into a Judiciary Committee hearing where Republicans were trying to find absent members to meet a quorum so they could advance legislation about open records reform and restitution for child pornography victims.

                “You know, you guys are in the majority,” he said, taking a seat. “Goodness.”

                A few members chuckled.

                “I want to say something about this,” Franken said, leaning into the microphone, with a deadpan unsmiling face.

                “When we were in the majority, we had the responsibility to provide a quorum, and I thought you guys, your side, didn’t show up because you just resented being in the minority. But now I know … again it’s just sheer laziness.”

                The new Judiciary Committee chair Iowa Republican Sen. Chuck Grassley didn’t look up.

                “You did a very good job, I have to say,” he retorted. “You did show up.”

                So good to have Republicans in charge now. Being as they don't show up either in the minority or the majority. At least the Democrats take their jobs seriously.

                    More good news on the Republican front.


                    Former Republican presidential candidate and congressman Ron Paul says secession is happening and it’s “good news.” Paul later predicted the states would stop listening to federal laws.

                    “I would like to start off by talking about the subject and the subject is secession and, uh, nullification, the breaking up of government, and the good news is it’s gonna happen. It’s happening,” Paul, the father of potential Republican presidential candidate Rand Paul, told a gathering at the libertarian Mises Institute in late January.

                          Throw in KY, TN and WV. Don't let the door hit you on the way out.

                          But St. Louis and New Orleans should be declared entrepôt free cities. (The Slave Staters hate them anyway.)

                            Well, Missouri did vote for a dead man instead of John Ashcroft, so there might be some hope for them.

                            Those three states can go, but NC and VA are invited to remain in the USA.

                              I switched up, since the only part of MO worth saving is StL.

                              We keep VA for the DC suburbs and NC for the ribs (southern whites eat that TX crap anyway).
