my brilliant realization: those who support Bush just aren't as smart as those who don't

Okay, so maybe it's not a brainstorm, but I was watching the ye-gawds-early news today (couldn't get back to sleep at 6:30am when sanju_devil_cat was peeping her brains out at me), and the newsies were showing soccer-moms (now called "security moms") who support Bush and those who don't. It was really clear that the B-supporters were the easily brainwashed type, and they all appeared... well, there's no other way to say it: They all seemed dumb. And have you ever watched the Fox "News" Channel that these people use as their source of propaganda? If you have, I need say no more.

So does anyone know a B-supporter who isn't 1) dumb, or 2) a rich, selfish jerk who cares more about his/her stock portfolio than the health of the nation and our world?

It also occurred to me that it's very strange Christians support B. Have they ever heard the teachings of Jesus? The self-described "Christians" who support him act like Old-Testament-types, not followers of Christ. I suspect real Christians do not, in the main, support B. Unless (wait for it...) they are 1 or 2 as listed above.

Am I onto something, am I off base, or is this a "duh" moment?
