We're not as smart as we think we are

Fraud aside -- and we can't really put it aside, can we? -- do you wonder how Barack and Joe got elected twice and how Joe and Kamala got elected to fill Barack's third term? Let's examine our ability to listen to these pretenders.

The smooth talking Barack establishes the narrative that is repeated endlessly in the media, and he's really slick. The blogger Neo comments on an interview Barack gave to CNN on race:
Obama is mendacious, among other things, because of course he knows that proud Americans who are white are well aware of the long hard struggle of black people for equality under the law, and its repercussions. Obama’s statement is nonsensical, but you have to actually stop and think about it to perceive that, and he’s counting on the fact that most people probably won’t.

Now what about the few remaining people listening to CNN? Gerard Van der Leun, curator of American Digest, came across this chart:.

To appreciate the chart you must remember that the average IQ in the United States is 98. The chart correlates IQ with the type of work people do. How do you think someone with an IQ of 98 will evaluate the words of a politician?

Just for fun: What do you think AOC's IQ is? Did CNN leave airports because too many people couldn't understand it or because too many people could understand it? So many mysteries, so little time.

"We live in an age in which it is no longer possible to be funny. There is nothing you can imagine, no matter how ludicrous, that will not promptly be enacted before your very eyes, probably by someone well known."
~ Malcolm Muggeridge
