We’re Wicked Freakin’ Smaaht

The People’s Republic of Massachusetts has been named the smartest state in the USA.  Judging from how the majority of my smarty pants neighbors voted in the last election, I’m not so sure. 

BOSTON (CBS) – A new survey says Massachusetts is most-educated state in the nation.

The Kauffman Foundation looked at the education of each state’s work force.

It found 61-percent of residents in the Commonwealth have some college education and 16-percent have advanced degrees.

Maryland and Colorado were second and third in the survey, followed by three New England states – Connecticut, Vermont and New Hampshire.

More than 60-percent of New Hampshire residents have been to college and more than 11-percent have advanced degrees.

Advanced degrees don’t translate to smarts.  Look no further than the current occupant of the Oval Office for proof.

Maureen Dowd’s Brother Rocks

It’s hard to believe Maureen Dowd and her brother, Kevin, came from the same womb. 

She hands her column over to him today and it is a delight.

As a semichastened Barack Obama appeared at the press conference following the election, he conjured up the image of the curtain opening in “The Wizard of Oz,” revealing a little old man working the controls, not the great and powerful Oz.

The president had to wonder how this could happen in two short years. He must long for the days when the media routinely referred to him as “cerebral and brainy” (savvy was never mentioned) and salivated over “Michelle’s amazing arms.”

The voters left no doubt about their feeling for his super-nanny state where the government controls all aspects of their lives and freedoms. Warning signs were up in the three elections held in Massachusetts, Virginia and New Jersey and with the noisy birth of the Tea Party. But the president, swathed in the protective cocoon of adulation and affirmation from the media and his own sycophants, soldiered on in his determination to turn our country into just another member of the failed European union — France without the food.

I recommend a full reading.

Not only is he on the right side politically, but he is a much better writer.

John Kerry Steps In It Once Again

My very own botched joke of a senator has an explanation for his party’s and Obama’s tanking poll numbers.  According to John F-ing Kerry, we are just too darned stupid to see how good we have it.

Howie Carr tells the story like only Howie can.

Let them eat ketchup. 

That in essence is what Liveshot Kerry recommends as his prescription for the little people suffering in the so-called economic “recovery.” That ketchup line, from an anonymous Internet poster yesterday, perfectly captures Kerry’s breathtaking smugness. As he intimated this week in D.C., the hoi polloi just don’t understand his greatness, nor that of his fellow national Democrats, from Barack Obama on down.

These all-time lows for Barack and the Congressional Democrats in various national polls – John Kerry knows what’s happening

“I think there’s a comprehension gap,” he explained to a breakfast of Beltway bumkissers.

Comprehension gap. In other words, you’re not smart enough to understand how wonderful he and the rest of his Democrat pals are.

Keep reading for a good laugh on a Friday morning.
