The United States doesn’t need to know where a coun­try is in or­der to in­vade it.

Ac­cord­ing to a new sur­vey, the less Amer­ic­ans know about Ukraine’s loc­a­tion, the more likely they are to sup­port U.S. in­ter­ven­tion. That sounds about right to Steph­en Col­bert, who be­lieves in demo­crat­ic prin­ciples (es­pe­cially when it comes to geo­graphy).

Plus: A cer­tain news out­let be­lieves the White House cooked the Obama­care en­roll­ment books, and a widen­ing gap between the rich and the su­per rich has the former eco­nom­ic class protest­ing against the lat­ter.
