"I'm Smarter than you...

and I'm voting for Kerry"

Hey guys, I thought it would be cool to design a bumpersticker to this. It would make an interesting parody. Any design ideas?

BillO and I have often talked about this bizarre phenomenon that many liberals seem to really think they are smarter than the rest of us, and that this intellectual superiority should translate into political deference. I remember a letter to the editor in the local paper claiming that since university professors and reporters are largely democrats and since they are much smarter than us and/or better informed on the issues then the democratic party is the intellectuallly 'correct' party. These sort of things pop-up often. I saw a bumpersticker (apparently not a parody) that read "Democrats: the thinking person's party."

This is a general line of observation and criticism that I'd like to persue. Pls contribute your own observations on this intellectual arrogance. For instance Teresa is a veritable font of arrogant statements.

These two at NRO are a good place to start. And here's a great quote from Ann Richards, who lost the governorship to Bush in 1994, "The president speaks in terms that are so simple on the most complex issues that it sort of leaves you with your mouth hanging open." This is meant of course to be an insult, but I've always admired those who can condense complex issues to simple terms. Also, a truly decisive individual doesn't need to condiser 256 shades of grey before making a decision. A fact which is sorely lost on JFKerry and the intellectual elitist lefties.
