There has been a running commentary in the politics of the past few years that Glenn Beck touched on today. Anyone not neck deep in democratic dogma is ridiculed as being stupid. The left have for years portrayed themselves as the educated class. And yet, the left makes just as many downright stupid comments as the right.
A perfect example of this is 2008 Vice Presidential nominees Sarah Palin and Joe Biden. Joe Biden is the original Gaffe Machine. He has suffered from foot-in-mouth disease for decades. And yet, who is universally known as the 'idiot'? Sarah Palin, of course. There's even a bumper sticker to prove it! Biden, however, is a well-educated senior statesman, or so we're told.
The liberals are always squawking about their intelligence. But then one of them says something like this, and blows the whole theory out of the water (via Fox Nation):
Chris Van Hollen of Maryland, chairman of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee said THIS about Ted Kennedy's Senate seat...“Why would you hand the keys to the car back to the same guys whose policies drove the economy into the ditch and then walked away from the scene of the accident?” “For the Republicans to say vote for us and bring back the guys who got us into this mess in the first place, I don’t think it’s a winner."
Now that's an idiot.
UPDATE: David Schuster shows us his IQ.
Speaking of intelligence, let's not forget this
