JEOPARDY: THE FINAL REMAINING UNCORRUPTED OLD-MEDIA SOURCE OF VETTING
IMAGINE THE ULTIMATE LEFTIST IGNORAMUS, BARACK OBAMA, ON JEOPARDY:
Obama: “‘Asia,’ for 100.”
Alex Trebeck: “57”
Obama: “Uh, how many states there are in the U.S.?”
Alex Trebeck: “No, I’m sorry. Fifty-seven is the number of Islamic states. The actual number of American states is 50.”
Obama: “Not counting Alaska and Hawaii?”
Alex Trebeck: “No, counting them, too. But remember Barack, the category is ‘Asia.'”
Obama: “‘Asia’ for 200.”
Alex Trebeck: “This land mass is the closest Asia is to America.”
Obama: “What is Hawaii?”
Alex Trebeck: “No, the answer is ‘what is Russia.’ Hawaii is not in Asia. While politically part of the United States, Hawaii is geographically part of a chain of Polynesian islands. Barack, weren’t you born and raised in Hawaii?”
Obama: “No, I was born in Kenya, raised in Indonesia, then spent a few years in Hawaii, but stoned most of the time.”
(Friedman’s performance is further proof – as if we needed any — that the Pulitzer Prize has been co-opted and corrupted by the left as badly as the Nobel Peace Prize (Barack Obama, Al Gore) and the Academy Award for documentaries (Al Gore). Tragically, these these awards are give merely for being the left’s most useful hack. The only thing ‘fried’ in Friedman is his brain.)
So this ignoramus from the New York Times has been trying to tell us what to believe?
Following in the footsteps of MSNBC’s ignoramus Chris Mathews (who also bombed on Jeopardy), three-time ‘Pulitzer Prize’ winner and Ph.D. of ignorance, New York Times dumbbell Thomas Friedman, finishes ‘Jeopardy’ in last place, behind a CNN and a NBC talking-head.
-Failed all questions on finance, social media and industrial history.
NY Times’ Thomas Friedman: “Mr. Last Place”
-NY Times Ignoramus Thomas Friedman, on the right, in last place. CNN’s talking-head Anderson Cooper on the left, and NBC’s talking-head Kelly O’Donnell in the middle (or as former Democrat senators Edward Kennedy and Chris Dodd liked to call it, a ‘waitress sandwich’).
With the category “21st Century Lingo,” the answer was, “In 2011, BusinessWeek said European government bonds were this ‘poisonous’ kind of debt.”
Friedman responded, “Sub-prime.” I guess he missed the clue in quotation marks “poisonous.”
The correct response of course was “toxic.”
In the same category moments later, the answer was, “It’s the ‘tiny’ term for a person who writes short posts about one’s personal life on Tumblr or Twitter.”
Once again, the word in quotations marks was the clue, and once again Friedman missed it.
“What is a tweeter?” he replied.
Of course, the answer was “micro-blogger.”
At the end of Double Jeopardy!, Cooper was in first with $15,600, Friedman in second with $8,400, and O’Donnell in third with $2,000.
The Final Jeopardy! category was Inventors, and the answer was, “The National Inventors Hall of Fame said his work ‘brought the south prosperity,’ but he was out of business within 5 years.”
No one got the correct response of Eli Whitney.
“You mean there’s a ‘Fried-Man? Like a superhero of greasy food?”
“Where can I get the comic book?”
