Democratic Pol: We Need Stupider, "Noisier" Reputation
— Ace

Not the best slogan with which to win a Democratic primary.

"Our congressman is the smartest person in the district, and we might be the only place in the country that can say that," Rinck said. "But he falls somewhat short on the charisma meter. And it might take a somewhat less intelligent -- although much noisier -- person to get some things done for this district."

They're the only district that has a Congressman who's the smartest in the district? Is he saying this guy is that smart, or his constituents are that dumb?

I don't think that's going to fly. Democrats tend to have Lake Woebegone syndrome, where they all imagine they're smarter than average.

5 This guy is actually running against my congressman, Vern Ehlers. I'm not a huge fan of Vern's, but you can't fault his credentials on the whole "smart" thing. From his bio:After three years of studying at Calvin College in Grand Rapids, Ehlers transferred and received his undergraduate degree in physics and his Ph.D. in nuclear physics from the University of California at Berkeley in 1960. After six years teaching and research at Berkeley, he moved to Calvin College in 1966 where he taught physics for 16 years and later served as chairman of the Physics Department. During his tenure at Calvin, Ehlers also served as a volunteer science advisor to then-Congressman Gerald R. Ford.

7 And the republicans have this father-knows-best attitude about, oh, lying to us about going to war, lying about the costs of war, lying about the costs of a drug program, lying about war profiteering, keeping us from seeing images of the war dead, ignoring warnings about 9-11, ignoring the evidence about uranium from Niger, ignoring warnings about Katrina, appointing political hacks to positions of real importance, misrepresenting the long term effects of the tax cuts, lying about social security...

Because they are smarter than us, you know.
