Duh!
Intelligence Study Links Low I.Q. To Prejudice, Racism, Conservatism
Quote :
Are racists dumb? Do conservatives tend to be less intelligent than liberals? A provocative new study from Brock University in Ontario suggests the answer to both questions may be a qualified yes.

The study, published in Psychological Science, showed that people who score low on I.Q. tests in childhood are more likely to develop prejudiced beliefs and socially conservative politics in adulthood

I think this is something liberals already know. How about a study that shows liberals have a better sense of humor too?

I don't know about better, but they do have a hard time distinguishing satire from reality. There was that study from a while back that showed they didn't realize the Colbert Report was a fake show. And now there's a similar instance with a news story from the Onion:

Quote :
Congressman Falls for The Onion's Planned Parenthood 'Abortionplex' Story

Meet John Fleming, the unfortunate Republican U.S. Representative from Louisiana who made that wonderful and all-too-common mistake of thinking that an Onion article was real and telling his Facebook followers to read it. Fleming's Facebook status was posted by Literally Unbelievable, a Tumblr that collects images of Facebookers who think Onion satires are the real deal and post them on their walls.

Not terribly surprising. So little of their arguments are based on facts, logic, or reason, so it goes without saying that at some point they're going to have a hard time differentiating their own bullshit from others. Add to that Poe's Law, and they're at an even bigger disadvantage.
