Of course, Conservatives are dumber and have lower IQ's than liberals. It doesn't take an extensive scientific study to prove this point. It's simple common sense.
How can anyone with half a brain tolerate the kind of balderdash that spews from the mouths of "Conservative" commentators and spokespersons every day ad nauseum. For example:
From Media Matters For America -- February 26, 2010:
"Conservatives Mock The Uninsured:
For the Conservative perspective on the country's health care problems, look no further than Rush Limbaugh and Glenn Beck. Since the beginning of time, politicians have used personal anecdotes to accentuate policy points, and the bipartisan health care summit was no different. But conservatives went out of their way to respond to the summit by mocking the uninsured -- specifically, remarks from Rep. Louise Slaughter (D-NY), who told the story of a woman without health insurance who "had no denture. She wore her dead sister's teeth."
Multi-millionaire Limbaugh, who has claimed "there is no health care crisis," responded to Slaughter by asking, "Isn't that why they make applesauce?"
LIMBAUGH: You know I'm getting so many people -- this Louise Slaughter comment on the dentures? I'm getting so many people -- this is big. I mean, that gets a one-time mention for a laugh, but there are people out there that think this is huge because it's so stupid. I mean, for example, well, what's wrong with using a dead person's teeth? Aren't the Democrats big into recycling? Save the planet? And so what? So if you don't have any teeth, so what? What's applesauce for? Isn't that why they make applesauce?
Multi-millionaire Glenn Beck similarly stated, "I've read the Constitution ... I didn't see that you had a right to teeth." One of Beck's co-hosts responded to the anecdote by talking in a baby's voice: "I have no health care, Mr. Pwesident, and I have no feet and no tonsils because doctors took 'em out."
Conservative attitudes to the health care crisis perhaps can perhaps best be summed up in Limbaugh's advice to a caller who couldn't afford the $6,000 cost to treat his broken wrist: "Well, you shouldn't have broken your wrist."
Media Matters' John Santore wrote: "Politics aside, the real question is this: Why do ordinary Americans continue to listen to Conservatives who don't even pretend to care about the senseless indignities and horrors experienced by countless citizens of this country?"
The answer to Mr. Santore's question is simple: "Because so many ordinary Americans are too damn dumb."
