Is it possible we're this dumb?

Here's a true "holy shit" moment for today:

The Quad City Times is polling today on North Korea, asking how the US should react to recent nuclear tests. There are five options, ranging in severity from nothing at all to engaging in nuclear war. 31% of poll participants said we should "Impose economic sanctions." I'm not sure there's much more we can take away from them, but that's the answer that seems most logical to me.

On the other hand, the second most popular option, chosen by 27% of voters, was "Strike first: Drop a nuke on them."

In other news, 27% of Quad City Times readers have been diagnosed as out of their goddamn minds.
