Once again, from Andy Borowitz:
S & P Downgrades Iowa's IQ
Straw Poll 'Alarms' Ratings Agency
AMES, IOWA (The Borowitz Report) – Calling the results of today's Iowa straw poll "alarming," Standard and Poor's took the unprecedented action of downgrading Iowa's IQ.
While the effects of such an extraordinary measure are hard to predict, experts say the IQ downgrade could result in Iowans having difficulty completing sentences or operating a television remote.
"This downgrade would be very upsetting to Republicans in Iowa," said an S & P spokesman. "Fortunately, there's no way they'll understand it."
The winner in the straw poll, Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-Minn), gave a rousing victory speech that was simulcast in English across the state.
But there may be tough sledding ahead for Rep. Bachmann, as a new poll shows her losing support to Texas Governor Rick Perry among voters who describe themselves as morons.
Gov. Perry kicked off his presidential campaign today in South Carolina, unveiling a new stump speech in which he promised to repeal the twentieth century.
