I think Ms. Couric is hardly an example of your typical murkin. She's  
a member of the elite media, and they are the most insular and  
provincial of us all. A more earthy term might be "arrogant  
shithead." (Especially the ones who live in New York.) Those of us  
who live out in what is euphemistically known to the elites as  
"flyover country" would never make such a blunder. Many of us can  
even find out own nation on a map of the world. Those who are  
particularly advanced can find the state they live in, and even the  
county. These people tend to be shunned by their neighbors, however,  
and so are becoming increasingly more difficult to identify. Of  
course you never should make too much of all those surveys  
demonstrating what a nation of dolts we are. It's becoming  
increasingly more apparently that larger and larger numbers of people  
contacted to participate in such surveys find that messing with the  
survey taker's mind is much more rewarding than simply answering the  
questions in a straightforward and truthful manner. I myself have  
been known to have a few survey takers on, from time to time, when  
the spirit moves me.
