Al Gore Gets Global Warming Science Right According To Experts 177
Look, some guy claimed that Bush has an IQ of 91. That didn't sound right to me, plus he refused to cite where he got that number. So I did a quick search, found an article that estimated a Bush IQ of 120, and posted it. I made no particular claims to its accuracy, I even used the word "probably", for the mid 120s IQ, and I cited the article that explained it was an estimate based on other, non IQ tests.

Then you posted stuff about the SAT test that said the SAT isn't an IQ test. But of course I had never said it was, nor did the original article.
Then you posted a couple of replies that essentially repeat what the article said - that the 120 or so IQ is an estimate based on other tests. So your replies added nothing to the discussion, since I had already posted the article that explained that, and I had never claimed otherwise.
If you think that estimate is wrong, fine. Its an estimate. Though the methodology outlined in the article certainly seems better than your suggestion of judging Bush's intelligence from his speeches, since he almost certainly doesn't write them.
