Liberals: Are They Smarter than Conservatives?

Satoshi Kanazawa, an evolutionary psychologist at the London School of Economics, has determined, among other things, that liberals are more intelligent than conservatives. Read more here. The psychologist also has a few other ideas up his sleeve: For instance, dating in a big city is mathematically difficult (read here) and that intelligent people are more likely to be atheists and stay up late at night (read here).

Big Think is an online think tank unaffiliated with either the Republican or Democrat Parties. NYT has called it “youtube for smart people.”

Since its launch, the think tank has interviewed over 1500 notables, including the late Sen. Ted Kennedy (D-Mass.), Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.), former House Speaker Newt Gingrich (R-Ga) and NYT columnist Paul Krugman. It has also hosted global forums with headliners such as financier George Soros and White House economic chief Lawrence Summers.

We trust this photograph we found of donkeys chewing on wood isn’t an indication of liberals’ intelligence.
