Perhaps we should put less effort into forcing the release of President
Obama's original long-form birth certificate, and more effort into forcing
release of his IQ. Anyone want to take my bet that it'll be lower than
George W. Bush's?
Perhaps we should require a candidate’s college GPA, their college board’s score, and their IQ to be released to the public. If nothing else, if someone really was the “village idiot” they would have to be public with it and it is unlikely we would elect them.

Republicans who, if summer polls are any indicator, only need to keep
breathing in order to regain control at least of the House on Nov. 2.
The Democrat is trying to portray Republicans in Congress as

houses in the 2008 elections, instead of the other way around.
If Republicans were such obstinate obstacles, why didn't Democrats
approve healthcare last year when they had 60 Senate votes and the GOP was
helpless to halt it? Obama doesn't discuss the dissension among
