View Full Version : Stupid People Love Bush New Study Shows Correlation Between Decline Of IQ&Rise Of GOP

Stupid people love Bush" new study proves According to the prestigious Southern California think tank, The Gluton Group, stupid people prefer President George W Bush over Senator John Kerry by a 4-to-1 margin. As Chief Resident Dr. Louis Friend characterized the results of the research, "the less intelligent you are, the more you like Bush." This landmark study, conducted over a 5 month period, involved 2400 likely voters bridging all economic stratas in the 17 states generally considered up for grabs on November 2nd. Participants were tested for intelligence, then asked to fill out a 12 page series of questions involving the Presidential candidates with results released earlier this week.

The consensus: the higher the IQ, the less people trust Bush and respect the job his administration has done. The lower the IQ, the more people admire his steadfastness. "It was pretty much a slam dunk. There's no nice way to say this. Dumb people like him. They think his unwavering nature is a positive personality trait. They even venerate him for never admitting mistakes, even when he's wrong. On the other hand, smart people think he's a lying bully. I mean, c'mon, you have a deserter accusing a decorated veteran of treason. Who's going to buy that besides stupid people?" Preliminary results: IQ Above 140: Kerry 80%, Bush 20%. 120-140: Kerry 65%, Bush 35%. 100-120: Kerry 54%, Bush 46%. 80-100: Bush 54%, Kerry 46%. 60-80: Bush 60%, Kerry 15%, Dale Earnhardt Jr. 25%. Apparently, Bush's good-evil, black-white philosophy resonates on an inverse relationship with higher education, whereas it became evident over the period of analysis that John Kerry's nuanced arguments are only understood by people who paid attention in any class above the 5th grade. Doctor Friend elaborated: "It has to do with intellectual curiosity. Folks see Bush in front of a stream talking about the environment and they assume he's in favor of it, even though if you read his legislation, I'd be surprised to hear him endorse shade. This also explains why Bush gets away with pretending he doesn't know how the Senate works, allowing him to call Kerry a flip-flopper." Friend released evidence that this type of disconnect exists across the board: education, foreign policy, the economy, post 9-11 security response and State Dinner entertainment choices. Also discovered was a direct correlation between the number of preset Country Western stations on car radios and Bush's approval rating. Dr. Friend attributes this phenomena to the simplicity inherent in the messages indigenous to both. Classical music listeners were preponderantly Kerry supporters, but surprisingly, on heavy metal, the two split down the middle. Spotting a trend, Friend cautioned, "Because of the deterioration in public education, larger and larger segments of the population are creeping downward IQ-wise, cementing the hold Republicans have on the electorate." However, if the election were held today, Bush would hold a lead of 52-48 in the popular vote, but would be virtually tied in the Electoral College, which Bush supporters argue against because the word College angers them. When contacted, a Kerry spokesman just chuckled. No Bush spokesperson was made available for comment. It was also found that Ralph Nader supporters were the brightest of all political proponents tested, but Dr. Friend dismissed them as "too smart for their own good." In a related study, smart people prefer baseball because the pace is such that there is time to read.

I didn't need a scientific study to tell me what I already knew. People should have listened to me to begin with.

Told y'all, Stupid Moronic Idiots that can't pull their finger outta their ass, like GWB. :nerner:

Thanks for the article Warrior.

Unfortunately for us, in the USA, as in much of the rest of the world, the stupid outnumber those of us that actually think with a logical brain. I just wonder when those of us that are smart, will actually break off and form our own government?

uh, no. That survey was obviously both biased and scientifically meaningless. Anyone who would believe such crap displays his or her intelligence and closed-minded ignorance in doing so.

mboyle, don't call survey's "biased" unless you can properly explain how you figure, statistically speaking. Usually it helps to know such things as, who was polled, what exactly the questions, who administered the questions, and under what conditions.... among many other things.

That, and I can't believe you're getting upset over a joke ;)

You can tell this is phony without even making it out of the first paragraph by reading this:

As Chief Resident Dr. Louis Friend

and having seen "The Silence of the Lambs."

I have to admit, I do personally attack, slander, and trash people who voted against me all the times I was nominated for an Oscar. But I was actually in the running, so I think that's understandable. But when I'm not nominated, then I don't take it personally if me and some of my Academy friends vote differently. For instance, I was really entralled with The Bone when she did Casino and I voted for her. Well, Patricia Neal really laughed at me and told me The Bone was a flash in the pan and rubbed it in and made it sting with Sarandon won. But she never called me stupid. And when she voted for Bette Midler in "For the Boys," it was the same thing the other way around, but I never called her stupid.
