The IQ of anyone that believes the Bush vs. Clinton IQ scores should be questioned as well.

Depending on which political agenda an individual supports, you can find different IQ scores and SAT scores for famous people online... it doesn't make any of them true.

Woodrow Wilson (D) was the ONLY president to hold a PhD. He earned it at Johns Hopkins University.

Failing to thoroughly research "information" before passing it along is just as ridiculous as stocking faith in "information" without the same effort.
