'Ben Franklin' Offers His Opinion on 'Jersey Shore' (VIDEO)

Ever wonder what Ben Franklin would think about Snooki and The Situation?

Wonder no more. On 'The Dylan Ratigan Show' (Weekdays, 4PM ET on MSNBC) guest host Cenk Uygur had on Tom Blair, who wrote the book "Poorer Richard's America," in which Blair channels Ben Franklin, and gives Franklin's opinions on modern life.

Since it probably isn't in the book, Uygur made sure to ask Blair what the founding father's opinion of America's foremost orange-hued, beach-dwelling reality characters would be.

"I think he would say we're wasting our time to a certain extent.," Blair answered. "That we really need to judge ourselves against people who have been successful vs. entertaining."

"I think he might have enjoyed The Situation, " Uygur argued.

"He might have," Blair responded. "But I think he might have enjoyed it for about 10 minutes a week."

Ben Franklin: Pretty much like the rest of us.
