I can see why you would not want a wonderlic type test to run for office. About half the stupid liberals in Congress would fail it. Also we would all be shocked to see how utterly stupid half the politicians we like are. My dad was a great EE and sent things into space working for JPL, Corning, Perkin Elmer and others in a long career.
he always told me the smartest and best our country has to offer go into the private sector. The dumb ones who can't cut it in their field go into politics.
