Anatomy of a Thread about Kerry-Bush IQ

As a newby blogger, I was intrigued by the complaint of David M that he had been plagarized by Dave's Blurbs and how it had cost him reads and clickthrus. When you are trying to build traffic, a connection to a high traffic blog is important. I saw my traffic jump when I got a mention in Hugh Hewitt's blog. We also want to get credit if we are first or near the top of a developing story. Sometimes I try to anticipate whats going to catch the news cycle's attention or try to be out in front with an article that I think will attract interest in the future. I can then be classed as an expert (?). An overriding factor: it has to be of interest to me! So it was interesting to see how the information disseminated from the V-Dare article that was published October 21st.

Kerry's IQ

Looks like Steve Sailer has divined John Kerry's IQ from his AFQT and is ready to publish on VDARE Thursday. The Bush-Kerry comparison will be interesting. According to Sailer, estimates of Bush's IQ based on his SAT are 120 or a bit higher.
