Pitch a Show 3

Who wants to help me flesh out this idea for a quiz show:

Who’s smarter than an elected official?

H/T Karen for the inspiration. If we go national, she gets credit for creating the show.

    Could really embarrass some people with that. Would be fun in a perverse way.

    I’d love to be a contestant. we could ask questions like “how much does it cost to fill up your car?”, “what is the average interest rate on a Visa or Mastercard, and how much notification does the credit card company have to give you before jacking your rate?”, “if you give people lots of money with no conditions on how it should be spent, do you have the right to be upset when they don’t spend it the way you’d prefer?”

    or how about this one: “would it be ok if we tortured your daughter the same way your vote indicates you think people should be tortured?” or maybe “can I listen to your private phone calls since you listen to ours? explain why or why not.”
