http://www.JewishWorldReview.com | What a confusing world we live in. Our sports heroes are "self medicated" for success. Our business leaders are sometimes more crooked than a boomerang that never comes back. Our "scientists" can't prove that global warming is man made, but want to shut up anyone that believes it isn't. And our politicians….Well they deserve a category of their own.

Below are quotes of those that litter our TV screens, internet sites, and Iowa ethanol fields, formerly known as "corn." Can you see through the hyperbole and hypocrisy? Have at it! Answers below. Let me know how you did. Cheaters get no strudel!

George Bush's super secret surveillance will reveal cheetahs to me…that is until the New York Times reveal how that demented guy in the WH. does it.

Answers:1.A 2.B 3.E 4.D 5.B 6.D 7.E 8.C 9.A 10.A 11.B 12.D 13.E 14.E 15.A

How'd you do? Let me know.

If you didn't notice the irony of the correct answers their may be no hope for you except to stay liberal. Please, if you do take the presidency, try not to wreck the country in the limited time you're in.

Thanks in advance, and…

I'll be on the road.
