99% of Hollywood is liberal which leads me to believe that this study was done on a curve.

His argument seems to be that liberals are concerned about the welfare of those not genetically linked to them, ergo they are more evolved (read 'intelligent') than us knickle-draggers who, oddly enough, concern ourselves with our families and communities.

Wouldn't the world be a much, MUCH better place if liberals (and those who vote liberal) spent a little more time on thier families and communities and putting their efforts into that venue? Instead of, say, putting in endless hours blogging on DU.

One could also mention that they don't seem to care much about others if they happen to be Southern or Midwestern or don't share their views.

Generally, "more evolved" today means more suited to survive and reproduce with success. That's obviously not a left-leaning political characteristic. So, in this case "more intelligent" is taken to mean more compassionate or more virtuous.

In terms of charitable giving, liberals around the world are less likely to give and less likely to give time. In this country, people identifying as Democrats are more likely to be felons (not very virtuous) and more likely to believe in ghosts, psychics, and supernatural payback (more likely than Christians) so that's not too intelligent by the standards of this study.

As always, observer bias and demographics are big problems when people attempt to define intangible traits. :rolleyes:

I betcha this unnatural one did not include those blacks and whites that are on welfare who are predominately Democrats/Liberals. You know the ones that are riding in the wagon rather than pulling it. The guy is so full of shit that if he took a good bowel movement there would be nothing left.

What hasn't been mentioned here is that Satoshi Kanazawa has also stated that sub-Saharan Africans have lower I.Q.s.
