Ed Lauter: What's the capital of Washington?
Photog
: Seattle?
Ed: See, this is the trouble with Americans.

Ed Lauter: Click to watch
Character actor Ed Lauter gave our photog a pop quiz on state capitals -- and judging by the embarrassing results, it's pretty clear someone wasn't paying attention in Geography class.

Dear "Duh" and "Who Cares" -

Please move out of the United States and go live on a rock in the middle of the ocean. Why the heck would you not care about the rapidly falling IQ standard in this country?

...oh, right.

What a sad, sad state we live in.

I have met some stupid people will be all confused between Washington, DC or Washington State.

This guy has a point. Nobody knows geography, anymore. Hell, someone thinks Austria is Australia! Jesus!!

If someone claims to BE FROM Washington state, and they don't know the capitol, that's just sad...

Ed Lauter, the best character actor from the 1970's. Somebody needs to give this guy a role in a big budget movie.

Good job Ed!
BTW, Capital it's a geographic place that enjoys primary status. Capitol it's a building!!! Idiot.
