But the final straw, Supreme Court justices said, came last week, when none of the 500,000 random citizens polled were aware of the existence of North Korea’s nuclear-weapons program.

“I mean, come on,” Justice William Rehnquist said. “The threat of global thermonuclear war? It’s just ridiculous. There was no way we could trust such a populace to keep running things after that.”

Then later….

“The people ruled unfit to govern? Yeah, I think I might’ve heard something about that,” said Covington, KY, sales representative Neil Chester. “I think I saw it on the news or something, when I was flipping past trying to find that show about the lady sheriff.”
