Hi Janine,

After the recent vote of the Republican controlled senate to reject the 
Nuclear Test Ban Treaty it would seem your uncle is right that 
conservatives are dumber than liberals! Seriously, though, it is unlikely 
that two such broad groups of individuals would differ much in average 

As for the KKK, bigotry is learned, not inherited with one's IQ. There 
probably are both smart and dumb people in the KKK but they share the 
common trait of having learned from the wrong teachers.
