Given the state of education here in the US, I always cringe when I see articles/graphs like this. College education is no longer a marker for intelligence or knowledgeability. It is nothing more than a marker for trainability.

There's an old southern black proverb: "The price of your hat ain't necessarily the size of your brain".

It's simply too easy to fall into the trap of demonizing those who voted differently as "dumbfucks" and serves no ones' purpose except those who wish to keep us divided and powereless.

"People aren't grapes, you can't take them in a whole bunch. You've got to take them one by one."
Cora, from the
Rita Mae Brown book Six of One

Do you get this is sort of tongue in cheek data? Did "Dumbfuckistan" give you a clue?

Most people with college degrees are Republican and voted for Romney. The overwhelming number of high school (and grade school) drop outs are Democrats and Obama supporters.
