This documentary about stupidity tells us the history of the word “moron”, the difference between stupid, moron, smart, intelligent, genius and questions the regular practice of classifying peoples intelligence through standardized IQ tests. Of course also Mr. Bush is examined in this report. A well educated guy who, nevertheless, acts in a completely dumb way — or at least wants us to believe so.
Albert Einstein said:
“Only two things are infinite the universe and stupidity.
and I am not sure about the former.”
I applaud CNN for raising the issue of uninformed Americans. THEN I WANNA SMACK ‘EM BOTH OUTTA THEIR CHAIRS for insulting our intelligence!
Sanchez for saying “terrorists” were freed from prison in Afghanistan. How do you know their terrorists Mr. Sanchez? and Shenkman FOR NOT ONCE CRITICIZING OH SAY CNN FOR DOING ITS PART TO KEEP AMERICANS UNINFORMED.
