U.S. American Geography Education in South African Asian Iraq

…or something. Miss Teen South Carolina Lauren Caitlin Upton’s …interesting… response to the question “Recent polls have shown a fifth of Americans can’t locate the United States on a world map. Why do you think this is?”

A peek above our garters to Reverend Big Dumb Chimp for this.

According to the International Herald Tribune, Miss Upton fared a bit better on the Today show this morning. I’m guessing she had time to prepare a better response.

I’m thinking Miss Upton’s education may be a victim of the same process responsible for prompting the original question. Of course if our educational system had higher standards, we would never have been watching Miss Upton on YouTube.

    She’s a beauty queen. I really didn’t expect much more from her. There was a reality tv show a while back that tracked beauty queens as they prepared for pageants. The girls ain’t all that smart.

    Well, I don’t expect everybody to be a rocket scientist, but geez.

    Holy crap what was that? I have to agree with what hubby said. They should have cut to the part in Billy Madison during the contest at the end when the guy says, “Mr. Madison, what you’ve just said is one of the most insanely idiotic things I have ever heard. At no point in your rambling, incoherent response were you even close to anything that could be considered a rational thought. Everyone in this room is now dumber for having listened to it. I award you no points, and may God have mercy on your soul.”

    Oh my gawd! Was she for real? Some people are so dumb they can’t even spell Geeogruphy!

  5. JanieBelle says:

    Yeah, I’ve been struggling with some way to explain her answer more charitably than “she’s dumber than a whole box of rocks”, but…

    nuthin’. I got nuthin’.

  6. Janine says:

    Perhaps I am being a bit more charitable here but it might not be a case of her being dumber than a box of rocks. It could be that she never has been allowed to develope her intelligence outside the very narrow niche of competing in beauty pageants. I am sure she knows more about what looks good under any lighting and what not. Knowlegde outside of that realm really is not needed.

    So I doubt she could be called a product of the US educational system. More like the product of a beauty pageant crazed upbringing.

  7. JanieBelle says:

    That’s a good distinction, Janine, and a very valid point.

    I’m not sure if I feel better or worse about the whole thing, though.

    Kisses

    It is bad no matter what. It could she never had the intelligence to be more then what we see but it is hard to know for sure.
