    Pick another topic, such as the neurological evidence that ultra-conservatives are lower functioning unreasoning beings than are liberal leaning persons.

    No one knows whether Republicans will ever reach IQ parity with Democrats, but the prediction that gun-hugging, ideological, privileged, white male Ayn Rand worshipers will have high-IQ children and grandchildren is difficult to argue against.
