Heh, Gotta Love Best Of The Web

I came upon a bit in today's Best of the Web from the Opinion Journal. They were talking about how the Democrats could be seen as Wile E. Coyote holding up a sign that said GENIUS, pointing to himself. Then to further their point, they quoted someone with an over-bloated ego that decided to post this on Democratic Underground.
"#1 - I would dare to assume that most of us here are in the upper 1%-20% of the population intelligence-wise. We must come to the realization that the majority of the population is in the lower 80% to 99% percent of the bell-curve. WE are not the norm. The Republicans understand that the average American is not very bright. They cater and pander to the masses. The Democratic Party tries to appeal to the population about "issues" that these people just don't understand."
All I have to say to that is this: Ummm, no.

I posted about this topic in February, and shortly afterwards my ultra-liberal Government teacher tried to say this same thing, but here's what I have to say to you...again.

Sorry to burst your overly self-blown bubble, but conservatives with higher degrees outweigh liberals 2-1 (41% to 20% with a masters or doctrine, and 44% to 21% with a Bachelor's degree). And of the conservatives, 71% vote Republican, and a measly 6% vote Democrat. As for the liberals, only 30% of liberals vote for Democrats, and 15% of Democratic voters are Conservative. And with conservatives over liberals in every level of degrees, that tells me that a lot of smart people are over at GOP headquarters.
