I’d say that the state of the union is quite uncertain, when a leader of one of our major political parties doesn’t even know what the three branches of government are.

you know, we have three branches of government: we have a House, the Senate, we have a President, and all three of us are going to have to come together and give some.

According to the Constitution, the three branches of government are the executive, the legislative and the judicial.  There was a time when every gradeschool kid in America knew this. Schumer splits one into two and omits the third entirely.  But hey, it’s all good.  Chuckles and his ilk are the smart ones and Sarah Palin is still Caribou Barbie the Alaskan hayseed.
