And that guy is just as stupid as those people for taking the results of polls as conclusive evidence of other people’s IQs without knowing the questions they were asked.

Or the inebriation level slash mischeviousness of the respondees. If you called 100 drunk trailer-park residents just as dinner is served, you’ll get quite a variety of responses, most of them rude and/or obscene.

Don’t be surprised just how many twits are actually out there.

45% characterized Watergate was “just politics”

Mr. Harris is also one hell of a grammarian.

There is actually a chance that 22% of Americans are that stupid, though.

I love how stupidity is equated with certain moral opinions. Since when does having a different opinion (or any opinion based on a defined set of morals) than the mainstream automatically indicate a lower level of intelligence? Mr. Harris would make a great anthropologist.

Believing that Saddam has or does not have WMD’s is a difference of opinion. Believing that the United States has found WMD’s even though it has not, is stupidity … or at least ignorance.
