A New IQ Test for American Culture

I propose that the simplest and most revealing IQ test would be this: “What can you say about Rush Limbaugh?” The answers should be studied using a content analysis, and the normative results should be published in the American Quarterly Journal of Broadcast Mediocrity. The curve will not take the bell-curve shape. The subjects will be clearly divided between the intelligent and the unintelligent, yielding a pool of subjects useful, on the one hand, for further studies on solutions for difficult problems of our economy, energy shortages, health care, etc., and on the other hand, studies of problems of the educational system, mental health, and antisocial behaviors of many types.


This part of the test has one question to test political savvy:
Should ex-Gov. Palin run for President in the next election for President?
