Yale study finds tea party members smarter than liberals on science

Oh my, proof that we are actually smart people and not a bunch of knuckle draggers.

A certain lawyer from Texas will be along shortly and tell you that you are mistaken and that the Yale professor must be a frat brother of Bush 43......

And so it goes.

Now there's a "man bites dog" story for you. A liberal Ivy-league college professor who incorrectly assumed that liberals are smarter and better-informed than conservatives.

Who could imagine such a thing?

Hate to break it to the professor but, that study, he didn't build that.

Is math a science or a language or..........both?

Most of the liberal yahoos aren't smart enough to get through a math/science based curriculum. With rhetoric there are very few absolutes and no wrong answers. All depends on your feelings that day as to the correct answer and if you can rationalize your standpoint. Same as their belief system

You mean getting a Ph.D. in "lesbian feminist poetry" doesn't make you brilliant?

I think the professor's analysis had much too narrow a focus and if he took the time to correlate knowledge about politics, mathematics, history and English with political ideology, he would be even more embarrassed.

The professor is a douche nozzle....I think that is the scientifically correct term.

Intelligence level of Liberals, does not correspond to Intellegence level of Democrat Voters.

One is a small part of the other.

Kinda like the brain of a dinosaur.

I wonder if a liberal douche nozzle instinctively understands the Venturi Effect.

Yes, the smaller their orifice, the quicker the douche flows....and I think they've got some pretty small orifices.

Yeah, but how does it affect the effect when it comes from an Oval Orifice?

If the Tea Party is so smart where were they for Bush Jr.? Liberals can't even do simple math, so it's kinda like picking on kids that ride the short bus. Dabby Do will be along shortly to prove me right...

Dabtl should be along shortly to remind us how the study was racist and therefore incorrect.
