Posted on 02/26/2010 7:29:54 AM PST by Responsibility2nd
1. Raleigh-Durham, N.C.
2. San Francisco-Oakland-San Jose
4. Minneapolis-St. Paul
6. Hartford-New Haven, Conn.
8. District of Columbia
Based on education level and intellectual environment
This MUST be an early April Fool's day.
Are sure this isn’t the onion (I was born in Durham)?
Baltimore? I live in the suburbs and I laughed when I read that. Maybe everywhere surrounding Baltimore, but not the city.
I want to know why they never tell us where the smartest rural areas are.
They probably don’t think we got no book learnin and can’t read no writin.
Gee, they are all liberal....
Things that make you go hmmmmm....
Funny how that works...
IF they are so smart why aren’t their states in better financial shape? I think the state income tax in NC is way high....and debt out of hand.
Seems rather dumb to me.
If these cities are “smart,” I’m glad I live in Stupidville.
Hartford, CT is a dump. There isn’t even University there. The whole idea of the New Haven - Hartford, CT as one of the smartest areas is so frikkin’ ridiculous it’s beyond words.
More education doesn’t mean “smart” in any real sense; it just means “likely to be more liberal” because people have been indoctrinated long.
By the way, the “more education” criterion would treat a masters in education as more educated than a BS in physics. Now, please excuse me while I leave the room to laugh.
HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA! *wipes eyes* HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!
I’m just glad they didn’t include Chapel Hill. They are full of themselves enough as it is.
You may have heard that when plans were being discussed for the creation and funding of the North Carolina Zoo, Sen. Jesse Helms famously said, North Carolina doesn’t need a zoo, just put a fence around Chapel Hill.
The ironic part of this so-called “smartest” cities is that most of them are libtard/progressive in-the-red fail cities....
Somebody bring an Amber Lamps!
Thanks for the before/after pics of the old-guy beat-down. That vid is really priceless!
They maybe can read in RTP, but since about 1988, the f’n transplants still can’t drive. LOL!!
What, no Albuquerque NM? Ya don’t say.....
All they looked at was the cities with the highest liberal to conservative ratios and then decided that they MUST be smarter since they understood the “nuances of hope and change”. Whereas we slope brow conservative Neanderthals need a pamphlet to have Obooger’s wonderful plan explained in simple terms and bright pictures.
In this bastion of liberalism, how does one define “smart”? Because these people vote for folks like Jim McDermott. You cannot be “smart” and vote for him at the same time, can you?
Only until you remember they view themselves as our moral & intellectual superiors. In that light this ‘poll’ makes perfect sense. LOL...liberals
Lots of doctors in Baltimore.
Batlimore is home to Johns Hopkins (University, Medical Center, Physics Research Center, etc) a UofM campus and half a dozen other colleges, with a relatively small population. This probably causes the PHD-MD to pop. ratio to be higher than expected. It may even exceed the murder rate.
Not knowing what criteria they used... I am suprised that DC didn’t rank higher.
Couple of years ago I heard a radio interview with Alex Trabec of Jeopardy fame. (interesting fellow) He mentioned that there was an “entrance exam” to be a contestant on the show and that applicants from the DC passed at twice the national average. ( they may lack sense, but they are smart)
I said the same thing. Ditto on Oakland.
I have a friend who retired as an Oakland police officer ... he says the term the police officers use for Oakland citizens of color is “Oakland Democrats”
It has questions on it like name Santa's reindeer and what is written on the tails side of a penny
Oakland, Baltimore and DC??!! Now THAT’S funny??!!
“Hey...I be smaht, you honkie muhfuggah! Sheeeeit.
Everything else, not so much. And, you don't want to cross the street from the square.
In today’s day and age one merely asserts knowing that people rarely check the evidence underlying the assertion. Such conduct is part of “The Big Lie” technique.
