Now we have proof; we're smarter - nyah, nyah, nyah

A new AP-Ipsos poll finds that Liberals read more books than conservatives.

I’ll pause to let THAT shocking news sink in…

According to the poll, 34% of conservatives have not read a book within the past year.. as opposed to 22% of Liberals and moderates.

The president of the American Association of Publishers, Pat Schroeder, tried to explain it thusly; “The Karl Roves of the world have built a generation that just wants a couple slogans: ‘No, don’t raise my taxes, no new taxes. It’s pretty hard to write a book saying, ‘No new taxes, no new taxes, no new taxes’ on every page.”


Naturally this bought a harsh attack from White House spokesman Tony Fratto; “Obfuscation usually requires a lot more words than if you simply focus on fundamental principles, so I’m not at all surprised by the loquaciousness of liberals.”What?? Because we read?? Well then, by that logic, couldn’t we call conservatives gun-toting crazies???


It should also be noted, because I can, that a recent Pew Research Study survey found that viewers of Fox “News” had the lowest knowledge of national and international affairs

Yeah.... like we needed a study to tell us that FOX news viewers were idiots.
