In the never ending quest to make myself feel better  
First the credit. The following chart is from http://chrisevans3d.com/files/iq.htm. If you link anywhere, you should link to him since he made the chart. I've simply grabbed the HTML because I can't control the longevity of someone else's site, and I want to save this.


As an aside, if you've read the papers today, GWB has said he has been given a mandate by the population to push his agenda forward.
"When you win there is a feeling that the people have spoken and embraced your point of view, and that's what I intend to tell the Congress," the president said at a news conference two days after Americans gave him a majority of their votes.
Now... for ChrisEvans3d.com's chart:

</font> </center> The IQ numbers were originally attributed to the book "IQ and the Wealth of Nations", though they do not appear in the current edition. The tests and data were administered via the Raven's APT, and the The Test Agency, one of the UK's leading publishers and distributors of psychometric tests. This data has been published in the Economist and the St. Petersburg Times, though this does not mean it should be taken as fact. Though the data does correlate somewhat to IQ of students per state based on SAT/ACT data, though this would be biased for those that had completed a high school education. Someone has also taken 2000 census data on percentage of state residents that have earned a college degree and used that to compare the voting in the 2000 election, it's funny, but that seems to correlate as well.

Dude, fuck off. My comment had absolutely nothing to do with any of the information listed above. All I was laughing at was her comment that Mississippi is borderline retarded.

Correction: The fundies have the Presidency. You have whatever they will allow you to have as a gay man.

You have to copy the HTML source for the table and turn off auto-formatting. If you use Semagic, you also have to turn off that feature that auto-adds non-breakable spaces automatically. Otherwise, it just goes in the same way.

everyone supports a balanced budget, but deficits in war time are necessary

Kerry was honest?

And the military is under smart management (I don't even know how you can think it's not)

and otherwise... I agree.

Or whatever I can get for myself, since I'm not dependent on others for my status or rights.

It certainly would explain a lot (like their no gay marriage ban passing by a ridiculous margin).

Not exactly a think tank down there.
