Funniest online newspaper comment of the day (so far)

In the course of arguing on the Web with a particularly virulent wingnut who was bitching about liberal media bias, I mentioned that journalists (and specifically newspaper reporters) tend to have higher-then-average IQ’s, thereby making them more likely to lean to the left. (The IQ thing is true, according to something I read a long time ago offline, but my main concern was getting under this hominid’s skin.) This was his response:

“I will put my(or Pat Buchannon, or George Will) IQ up against the average ‘journalist’ any day.”

I laughed my ass off when I read that even though at the same time I was thinking, “this country is so fucked,” which was exactly what a friend concluded after recently watching two 300-pound women debate the merits of extra-large bags of veggie chips in a Costco.

  1. Of course the whole “most journalists are Democrats” meme gets trotted out in the process. That completely ignores the reality that reporters/journalists don’t just pick their own stories and then publish them, they’re told what to write about and it then goes through the edit mill.
