The results from the earlier poll which measured the public's perception of raw intelligence, were interesting. Kunningham and Rugai were in a dead heat for last place, whatever. That was surprising as I don't regard Rugai as lacking in that department. Dart also did very poorly, but something tells me that Dart is not as stupid as everyone thinks. In the end, Dan Hynes bested Mike Joyce narrowly for the ring.
Someone spoke about a runoff. I considered a football throwing contest at Ridge Park but that would give former ace quarterback Hynes an advantage. Then I thought about 3 rounds at the Celtic boxing ring but that would favor former boxer Joyce. Then I considered comparing their ACT scores but that probably wouldn't work because I have a feeling those scores are tied too. So, in an effort to figure out who everyone thinks is the smartest politician, I have decided that I am going to offer another poll that everyone can vote on. Dan Hynes or Pickle Joyce? Voting begins on January 22 and runs til February 26 or until the first nominee gets 100 votes. Winner gets a prize and the loser goes on to compete citywide. May the smartest politician win. This time, only one vote per person.
