So far I’ve picked “Norman Thomas” for every question. I wonder if I’m gonna get any right?

Such a shame. You were doing so well.

Here's what The Boss has to say about excerpting blogs:

"Many times bloggers will post brief snippets only of their material and expect our readers to click on their link to get the "rest of the story" and then very seldom join in on the conversation that follows. No doubt this can give a blogger a few dozen extra hits and sometimes a little more, but unfortunately, it also raises the ire of some of our members.

If you would like to see your blog make it to the big times, and you have great news or great ideas to report, post your blog articles in their entirety to our Bloggers Forum on FR, and then join in on the fight for Liberty that follows!! If our readers like what you're posting, you may quickly become an accepted, trusted FReeper and you may start enjoying hundreds of new hits per each of your posted articles from FReepers who wish to see what else you may have to offer."


(The linked text goes to JimRob's original post.)

So - are you going to listen up when The Boss speaks?

You did MUCH better than the President who grew up in Kenya, and Indonesia and came to the USA to help study how to destroy it. I bet he got 2 right, graduate they call of some college, but we’ve never seen any records.

(Excerpt)

Why would you excerpt your own material?

Is there something wrong with it?

Porn? Scientology? Voodoo?

Why not post it here?

Mmmmm, but I just kept “deleting” them as soon as I used one. Made the last ones the easiest. And, yes, I guessed on a couple. lol

15/15!

You know, you're like that annoying little girl in the first grade who's always tattling to the teacher.... Does this thread policing make you feel like a man and give you a chubby or something?

15/15. The only one I wasn't sure about was the candidate who ran the most, but I figured that other than FDR it was generally 2 or 3 at a max, so it must be one I wasn't familar with. After that it was pretty simple.

Me too! 15/15. When you realize after the second question each is used once, it makes it kind of easy. Didn’t know the one about Millard Filmore, just used a test taking strategy, which says why kids can be so dumb, but appear to be much more intelligent! Did the same thing on the SAT years ago!

Nope. That's there all the time.

I got eleven correct. That stinks for a teacher of American Government. I'll obviously have to bone up some in the next 60 days.
