Do you ever watch something and then feel like the only response is an exhausted sigh? That's us right now.
The culprit is Jimmy Kimmel's latest late-night sketch. On its face it's actually pretty funny, but it's also making us very depressed about the state of the country. The concept of the bit was two-fold: First the late-night host and his team hit the street in Hollywood to ask passerby a loaded question: Do they think that Barack Obama is a Muslim? It may seem ridiculous to still be entertaining this idea, but a recent poll actually showed that a majority of Republicans believe that he is, in fact, a Muslim. (Cue sigh again).
Then the studio audience was tasked with guessing each person's response based on only their name and hometown. Now we know what you're thinking: Holy typecasting! Hilariously, some of the audience's assumptions were spot-on—like when they overwhelmingly agreed that the guy decked out in head-to-toe Marines paraphernalia would answer "Yes."
