I got them all right, but probably couldn't name one one American idol. So where does that put me?

I'm curious as what the correct answers were to those in the lower %. I cringe when I hear the "man-on-the-street" interviews. Politics and current events may be boring to some, but it directly affects every point in our daily lives.

12 our of 13. I couldn't put a name with a face for the first picture. I know that it's Ben Bernake as Chairman of the Fed... I just didn't recognize his picture.

12 out of 13. For the life of me I couldn't remember the name of the current Prime Minister. I even knew that the answer I picked was incorrect, but not which one was correct.

Looks like I've got a few more days before I have to worry about Alzheimer's.

12 of 13, missed how many have been killed in Afghanistan.

13 of 13 questions score top bracket 8% of people when I took this quiz. Looks like the majority only missed 1 or 2 answers.

It's truly amazing what our fellow citizens DON'T know!

On the other hand, it probably helps to be a news junkie.
