Fox Business insults the Romney voters
Fox News accidentally insults the intelligence of every Mitt Romney voter in the country.
It appears that a correlation has been made where none exists.
For example, plenty of West Virginians have a college education. The problem is, they leave. Why? Depressed economy. The jobs are limited. However, all West Virginians seem to head back there to retire or spend their final years. I expect the same situation exists in many of these other states.
Now…Indiana? all bets are off. Not a big fan of the Hoosier State.
I am leery of any study that tries to correlate intelligence ass a demographic. Most of my Republican friends appear highly intelligent. But…and here’s the caveat….I believe very much in multiple intelligence theory.
All smarts don’t come from books. An artist or sculptor or fine cabinet maker each has special intelligence that the rest of us don’t have based on skill, creativity and what the mind’s eye can see. I believe a person with that kind of intelligent is just as smart as someone who can take tests well and make good grades. It’s just a different kind of intelligence.
The intelligence of a composer of music is yet another form of intelligence. Being able to hear beat, tone, composition, rhythm, tune in one’s head and turn it into music is pure genius.
A BA or BS is simply one form of intellectual success. Too bad that we generally assign our awe to those who succeed in that area. Some of the dumbest dorks I have ever known have had Ph.D. after their name.
