(Newser) – Ask the Internet a stupid question, it’ll give you a stupid answer. Greta Van Susteren got an angry email from Brian in Tahlequah, Okla., complaining that her “brain is empty” and she has “a mind like a seive,” and decided to post it on her blog. She then took it a step further and posted a poll asking who’s dumber—her, or Brian for watching someone he thinks is dumb?—and you can probably figure out who’s “winning.”

Max Read “took the poll very seriously and weighed the evidence carefully,” he writes on Gawker. “On the one hand, ‘Brian’ doesn't know how to spell the word ‘sieve.’ On the other hand, Greta actually made a poll asking if she was dumber than a guy who wrote her an email.” He went with Greta—who is, at the moment, leading with 63% of the vote.
