37 percent of people completely lost

Mark Morford

Six percent of Americans believe in unicorns. Thirty-six percent believe in UFOs. A whopping 24 percent believe dinosaurs and man hung out together. Eighteen percent still believe the sun revolves around the Earth. Nearly 30 percent believe cloud computing involves… actual clouds. A shockingly sad 18 percent, to this very day, believe the president is a Muslim. Aren’t they cute? And Floridian?

Do you believe in angels? Forty-five percent of Americans do. In fact, roughly 48 percent – Republicans and Democrats alike – believe in some form of creationism. A hilariously large percent of terrified right-wingers are convinced Obama is soon going to take away all their guns, so when the Newtown shooting happened and 20 young children were massacred due to America’s fetish for, obsession with and addiction to firearms, violence and fear, they bought more bullets. Because obviously.

In sum and all averaged out, it’s safe to say about 37 percent of Americans are just are not very bright. Or rather, quite shockingly dumb. Perhaps beyond reach. Perhaps beyond hope or redemption. Perhaps beyond caring about anything they have to say in the public sphere ever again. Sorry, Kansas.

Did you frown at that last paragraph? Was it a terribly elitist and unkind thing to say? Sort of. Probably. But I’m not sure it matters, because none of those people are reading this column right now, or any column for that matter, because reading anything even remotely complex or analytical is something only 42 percent of the population enjoy doing on a regular basis, which is why most TV shows, all reality shows, many major media blogs and all of Fox News is scripted for a 5th-grade education/attention span. OMG LOL kittens! 19 babies having a worse day than you. WTF is up with Justin Timberlake’s hair?!?

Hey Dumbo, your little piece of fiction was just as void of facts.

Do you have a problem discerning the difference between fact and fiction?

You aren't able to prove that any part of my post is false - because it isn't, it is 100% truth, unlike your posts.

Dumbo, your post contained no facts or documentation to even claim it was factual. At least post a link to a factual piece that can be verified - not some San Francisco Looney Tune Character's blog post where he documents nothing.

There really is a difference between fact and fiction. Some day maybe your Mommy will tell you all about it.

Now we are posting op ed piece from a Left Coast news rag and calling it fact! What is interesting is that in reading his bio, he is a big supporter of the Gay rights movement, which has to make the Bob of Many names from St Paul really happy!

Good catch on the bio. I simply read the blog entry and looked at the source.

Normal people would be embarrassed to put up such garbage and expect others to take it seriously. Poor Bob.

You bring up a good point though. Perhaps Bob is the gay husband (wife?) of the Sludge?

I like perhaps, especially coming from the AT Sea-Tac 30 day challenge "guy". Between that noise & the "collectible" Corvair, you're MY best joke !! LMAOROTFU~! Thanks for the memories ! LMAOROTFU~!

Here is the data on education which is highly correlated with IQ:

Not HS Grad College Grad & Post-grad

% of Democrats 32%/ 15%

% of Independents 22%/ 18%

% of Republicans 19%/ 23%

Here is the data on people who earn incomes over $75,000 which is also highly correlated to IQ:

Income under $75,000 over $75,000

% of Democrats 74%/ 26%

% of Independents 72%/ 28%

% of Republicans 57%/ 43%

here are the facts. Many studies have been done on non-voters level of
income and education; non-voters match independents exactly.

To recapitulate: The Republican average IQ is higher than non-voters and
independents and all three are higher than the Democratic average IQ.
