    smarter!?!? Good lord.

    Think how "smart" they are when they figure out how they are going to pay for universal health care. Thats right folks, if you are a hard working individual you has an education, a job, and health insurance... you too will be able to pay higher taxes to increase the size of the social safety net for the dead beats.

    Re: I knew it. Liberals are smarter!

    I have difficulty equating liberal with smarter. Whenever they craft a national agenda, it's always what regulations they'll pass, what welfare programs they'll create and how they'll protect you from your own decisions. We never hear promises about how Liberals will save us from government, only about how Democratic government will save us from everything else on Earth. Liberals want to think they're the party of social freedom, but they're just the party of reinforcing and benefiting from irrational fears.

    Re: I knew it. Liberals are smarter!

    One read through two Orwells classics, Animal Farm and 1984, will tell you all you need to know about liberals. They are both brilliantly simple and shockingly accurate. Some of the quotes I hear from that side of the aisle sound like they belong on the front page of the former Soviet news source, Pravda.

    With this administration using scare tactics to support an unnecessary war, pushing through legislation that limits our rights to privacy, and firing judicial branch employees for having a philosophy contrary to the administration, I've always thought it was the Republicans that most closely mirror 1984.

    It's true, it's true. I start off every day by eating a baby on rye (or california club sandwich, as we like to call it). Then it's off to work at the oppression/tolerance camp, where my fellow progressives and I work tirelessly to stifle religious expression, force abortion upon all womyn and make everyone gay, whether they want it or not.

    Just like my conservative friends who ride endangered bengal tigers to their sweatshops, where they calmly strangle puppies and slake their thirst with the blood of the oppressed indigenous people.

    Or, you know, liberal & conservative are just labels applied to us by the media and politicians, who try to divide us as much as possible.

    Federal prosecutors are actually part of the Executive Branch and not the Judicial branch. They form part of the President's mandate to "enforce" the law.

    More proof that libs are not smarter than conservatives.

    Joking of course.

    Oops. My bad. Maybe I've been a conservative all along and just didn't realize it.

    Great post buddy and I really mean it. People need to stop being so defensive over small beans. Could it actually be that this study has some merit??? Who knows! These are simple stats, they're not branding DUMB your neighbor's forehead because he has conservative beliefs.

    Also, "smarter" was never once indicated in the article so it's a complete misinterpretation of the study to use that word...

    However, check this out...

    Maybe their study should've started here...

    Did you really buy into that political witchhunt? Seriously, it is the President's right to dump anyone, at anytime, for any reason. Please type your response, because it would be hard to understand you with that hook in your mouth

    Did I buy into the political witchhunt? You bet. And I never said it wasn't the President's right. But dumping them for purely political reasons isn't justified in my opinion.

    Also, I don't have a hook in my mouth, but I hope everyone realizes I did have my tongue securely in my cheek when I started the thread.

    If a judge was going to be investigating something that would shine badly on the president and the president fired the judge for that reason, then it would be a problem.

    Re: I knew it. Liberals are smarter!

    I just don't get this liberal versus conservative distinction. If George Bush's foreign policy makes me want to vomit but I agree with much of his domestic economic agenda, what does that make me?

    Re: I knew it. Liberals are smarter!

    Liberals probably read more. That makes their thinking the way it is. Conservatives are probably more about getting their work done and do not have time to read. They watch TV. Just kidding.
