37. The following post is from a letter published in The Christchurch Press (13/03/'10).
"Lorne Kuehn (Mar8) may be right when he suggests that Sarah Palin, a conservative and an intellectual inferior to Barrack Obama, may garnish enough support amongst her conservative followers to be the next president of the United States.
I say this after reading evolutionary psychologist Satoshi Kananzawa's published study, which showed that conservatives have an average IQ of 97 and Liberals 105.
That suggests that on a numbers game, which half the people in America being below-average intelligence (by definition) and Liberals being 5 IQ points ahead of that bunch, Conservatives would have more than enough dull adherents to defeat the smaller number of intelligent astute Liberal thinkers."
