The DUmpmonkeys are dead wrong about Rand Paul.

The guy graduated from the Duke University School of Medicine, and went on to become an ophthalmologist.

He's a nut, but he's intelligent as hell.


Well, the pecan doesn't fall far from the tree and all that!

Mulvaney was an honors scholar at the Georgetown School of Foreign Service, he attended Harvard Business School and he got a law degree from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. This is the man who the Sunlight Foundation now says uses the diction and syntax of a seventh-grader? The least evolved speaker in Congress?

Something is flawed here. I’m beginning to think that the Flesch-Kincaid test, which invented the “reads at an nth-grade-level” metric, is a crock.

Rudolf Flesch was an Austrian who immigrated to the United States, advocated phonics in the teaching of English and published “Why Johnny Can’t Read” in 1955. In the 1970s, he and J. Peter Kincaid, a psychologist and Navy scientist, first created their readability test for the military’s use with technical manuals.

The notoriously opaque U.S. Constitution merits a whopping 17.8 grade level, and the Federalist Papers come in at 17.1. Oh well, sorreeee you fancy founding documents of the Republic!

On the other end of the scale, the Gettysburg Address lands at an 11.2 grade level. “I Have a Dream” gets the grade of a freshman: 9.4. 

Feeling as though I could now face the test myself, I plugged this column into a Flesch-Kincaid readability index calculator. It came in at grade 11—slightly below Lincoln at Gettysburg but safely above Martin Luther King Jr. and “I Have a Dream.”

I’m better than King. Somehow I’m not convinced.

It is said that branches draw their life from the vine. Each is separate yet all are one as they share one life giving stem . The Bible tells us we are called to a similar union in life, our lives with the life of God. We are incorporated into him; made sharers in his life. Apart from this union we can do nothing.

Give the man a break, he is the first President to govern over 57 states.  :rotf:
With two left to go.
There were only two options for gender. At last count there are at least 12, according to libs. By that standard, I'm a male lesbian.

I know that one of the new states is Massatoosits. At first I thought it was a simple mispronunciation, but then he said it again in another speech, so it must be one of the seven previously unknown states to which Obama is referring.

I have an online friend by the forum name "NWPilot". He is from Washington (state) and he insists it is Patty Murray, naturally. There is quite a strong competition for the honor though.

Any US Senator that is stupid enough to suggest that al Qaeda builds day care centers in Pakistan and Somalia, has a special depth of stupidity.

Like they think (R) means Republican. Many a lib/dem/socialist representative has taken advantage of that.

How many times to these fools go on about how libs don`t message well or how they need to reframe an issue?

Guess what,the truth and facts don`t need long drawn out speeches or elaborate words,it is simple and to the point.

Tis one of my pet peeves when someone is giving me a 10 - 15 explanation only to realize they could have cut out the impertinent crap and explained things in 2 -3 minutes or so.

I wonder where the sentence " Democrats are all a bunch of dumb asses!" would rank on their collegiate scale? Not a lot of big words and nothing fancy about how they are arranged. Does the way I speak make me any less intelligent? Does this sentences structure indicate that I do not have a college education?

How about "the progressive populists' dearth of aptitude is frightening!"

Does this sentence make me any smarter then the first one? I don't see how it could. Speaking plainly and saying what you really mean is always the best avenue of approach.
