STUDY: CONGRESS FILLED WITH MORONS!
WWN ^ | 26 July 2011 | Frank Lake

Posted on 07/29/2011 9:17:13 PM PDT by smokingfrog

CAMBRIDGE, MA – A groundbreaking study has determined that 83% of the members of Congress are certified morons!

The Kennedy School of Government did a longitudinal study over the last 30 years that looked at the average IQ of members of Congress – the Senate & House of Representatives.

The study found that, despite the many advanced degrees from prestigious universities, and despite the fact that many in Congress are millionaires, the average IQ of U.S. Representatives is 101. The average IQ of U.S. Senators, is surprisingly, even lower at 98.

“We spent one hour a month with each member of Congress over the last thirty years. We gave them a number of IQ tests – including math problems, verbal problems and analytic reasoning problems. The results were consistent year-in-year out. Members of Congress are morons,” said Professor Thomas Turley of Harvard.

So what is a moron? A moron is a person whose IQ is less than 100 on a consistent basis.

The lowest IQs were typically the leaders of the two-parties.

In response to the study, Senator Harry Reid said, “Is that bacon?”

John Boehner said, “We will not back down and we will not give an inch and we will kill the cows when they come home. Hand me a tissue.”

Congress is filled with a professional Aristocracy.

Congressman in the US typically stay in power longer than did any Monarchs.

Will Rogers already stated such years ago.

"Suppose you were a Congressman and suppose you were a moron, but then I repeat myself.?

It doesn’t really matter since Nancy Pelosi has determined the world will end this coming Tuesday. :-)

Back in the 17 hundreds we had the brightest and most educated declare our independence from England and write our Constitution. As the years past, the average IQ of our elected officials seems to have dropped considerably. Now we are stuck with morons for elected officials. GOD help us.

There’s no way that the House and Senate have average IQ’s that high. And Pelosi’s perfect score of zero does drag the average down further still.

Old Bela Pelosi got her krystal ball out and declared gloom and doom shall decend upon us Tuesday. She reminds me of that guy that declared the world would end May 21st.

Way to much botox. It froze her brain.

This article is BS. The IQ scale is a numerical representation of a bell curve with 100 equalling the average of human intelligence measurements. Said differently, there are just as many people with an IQ below 100 as above 100. Those previously called “morons” have IQ’s significantly lower than 100. As one approaches the “tails,” either higher or lower than 100, one approaches the measurements for geniuses and “morons.”

Will Rogers already stated such years ago.

If Will Rogers said that years ago, it was larceny. The original quote is from Mark Twain.

It's from the Weekly World News of "Batboy!" fame. Pretty much the definition of BS.

Ted Kennedy being one example. 40 + years, even re-elected after killing a woman on a drinking binge and a woman raped on another drinking binge. Like I said many times, we must treat them as public servants not as monarchs. How about we start with a Constitutional amendment that they submit to random drug tests like just aout every othr govmnt. employee? Liberals would love that as weed would be legalized in two seconds if that were the case, but more importantly it would create a way to immediately remove these psychopaths from office. They want us to believe Nancy Pelosi with her eyes bugging out of her skull half the time is clean? That Barney Frank is? Yeah right. I wouldn’t be suprised in the least if those two lunatics are doing more meth than Charlie Sheen at a hooker party.

I’m thinking Sheila Jackson Lee (D-Texas) just by herself, has severly lowered the median IQ of the DC dynamos.

Pudd’nhead Wilson is one of Twain’s great works, IMHO, and very few Americans (even literate ones) have ever heard of it.

And we, fools that we are, have allowed them to vote themselves pensions that we can’t afford for ourselves paid for by our money.

How about we cut that first?

I heard DeMint say something about retiring yesterday. What the hell is anybody doing “retiring” from “public service”?

What the hell is going on?

One thing everyone knows for sure though is that the writers room at the WWN IS full of morons.

An IQ of 100 is considered normal intelligence while an IQ of 50-69 is considered a moron.

The WWN has been sharing their idiocy with us for decades.

I shudder to think what Shelia Jackson Lee’s IQ is.

She could probably count to it without taking off her shoes.
