    No doubt the truth is quite the opposite, and I can't wait for your sources.

    Not coincidentally, liberals now outnumber conservatives and are winning more and more elections without any intellectual merit to their platform whatsoever. Campaign strategies have to be designed at a third-grade level these days.

    Dark, scary days ahead with this worthless, brainless voting bloc running things.
    What exactly is the conservative preoccupation with intelligence? 90% of the conservative posts on this site (and pretty much every other one) don't even try to make a point, they just call liberals stupid and consider that to be a winning argument.

    Conservatives are the party of free thinkers....they're all free to think exactly the same thing. Maybe you should get the Hulk as your spokesman. CONSERVATIVE GOOD. LIBERAL BAD. HULK SMASH GOVERNMENT.

    When I first read the OP statement, I had to hold back from laughing. Anybody with any political common sense know that health and education are liberal strengths while guns and religion are conservative strengths.


    Hell was education even a topic in the republican primaries???

    I think his point is that Erod's conclusion did not follow from his data. That is flat out fact. You simply cannot draw conclusions about who is smarter in the US based on the data presented.

    LOL. The jump from 'Murican's bein' dumb to "its the liberals fault" was comical. This is no better than a Head of Joaquin thread. You gotta try a little harder than this. Especially considering the majority of states now have a Republican for governor. They have much more influence upon education than anyone in Washington.

    I'm pretty sure it was. Most of the Republican candidates agreed that our education system was so bad that we should stop doing it.

    Unfortunately, I am not surprised. We've been heading in that direction for about the past 30-40 years. It shows in our educational rankings as compared to other 1st world nations, and we have been on the decline.

    Brought race in AND created a red herring straw man. Is there anything you can't do?
    Nobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.

    Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.

    All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.
