Schadenfreude Overload (Part 8)

Is this person really advocating IQ tests for voters? Why don't we just bring back the poll tax?
Are these the same people complaining about voter disenfranchisement?

Funny thing is, if voting eligibility were based on intelligence, Bush would have probably improved his margin. Let's make the (probably justified) assumption that intelligence correlates with education level. If you look at the breakdown of votes by education, Kerry only won in the "No high school" and "Postgrad study" categories. Assuming that we're not going to be too draconian about it, most of the low IQ voters we would throw out would be in the "No high school" category, a net loss for Kerry.
