And the point is-
internet hoaxes are easy to hoist on people?
humor?
or are people willing to believe anything?

seriously, what is the point?

lol@Raph

Clinton a 182?  Now, I loved Clinton, but come on..

The BS is deep on both sides this election...what annoys me is hearing someone spit out what they have heard as if it were the truth...and they get to vote... *sigh*

Interestingly enough, I generally understand what Bush is saying, and after listening to Kerry, I often wonder what I just heard.  

Factually, from what information is available, it appears Kerry's and Bush's I.Q.'s are fairly compatible ranking somewhere in the top 10% and just as likely Bush's I.Q. is a tad higher.

Bush, of course had to settle for Harvard graduate school while Kerry opted for prestigous B.C. law school rather than home town Harvard.

It would appear to me that both men are intelligent and to a level far higher than the norm.  But one should never let facts get in the way of an intelligent discussion, they only cloud the issue.

OH my, now that makes ME smarter than half of them! I have very little confidence in standard IQ tests, but find it remarkable that either political party would not use even half of what IS available to solve world/domestic problems better.
If this is useable info, we should be allowed to see the numbers for the military and the other elected officials, as well as the judicial members. But would it change anyone's vote? I doubt it.
LOL, 'nucular' is one of my pet peeves, one that seems to irritate me more than half Bush's other lame spoken blunders. But one word doesn't in and of itself make me  vote/not vote for any given candidate.
It's an interesting article nonetheless, and thanks Kraw, since it's from a source I don't usually read.

Did anyone else notice, or just me? they listed GW Jr as a (D) Democrat? Now that is really really funny!
BTW, I'm still voting Kerry, but would like to see his score too. LOL, just for fun.

I don't believe this. I don't think these are the real IQ numbers.

I thought I remember reading somewhere George Sr. Bush's IQ was 125, and Ronald Reagen's 132 or something.

Clinton's IQ couldn't be 182. I think it's more like 140.

Anyway, I'm not going to vote solely depending on IQ numbers, no one should. It's their performance in office that should be judged most of all. And it's not because of Bush's frequent misuse of words and bad use of grammar in his Bushisms that I've voted him out. It's his bad decision-making in office.

Sincerely,
Noah Eaton

To me Bush is a flag under which stand those,
like Condelizza Rice and Colin Powell, whose motives
and  judgment I trust.

I have no trust or faith in John Kerry.  I think he
is a patrician opportunist who views
Americans as an ignorant gullible mob.

The title has been altered from its original posting which portrayed the article as true.

Now it has a ? to indicate there is some doubt as to the validity.  

Why is the question mark there? do you really believe there is any validity in the story?

It's crapola.  I'm pretty darn sure they ended up editing and putting that ? there due to reader scorn.  To later go back and alter their original intent speaks of cowardice, which, sadly, is very typical these days of poll-watching politics.

--That pretty much sums up my view. The amazing thing is that so many see him as 'one of us'.
