    First, that's a funny sign, no matter what.

    But neither conservatives nor liberals have a monopoly on people "deficient in those areas."

    Some of the most intelligent people I have ever known have been liberals, and some have been conservatives (and moderates as well!).

    I would say the same for the least intelligent.

    But sometimes the most intelligent people do not have a lot common sense.

    Also true, and I've also seen both conservatives and liberals with a great deal of common sense and those with almost none.

    I used to work in Christian academia, and I knew an economics professor who was very conservative but who lacked all manner of common sense. I also knew a math professor (who was an administrator by that point) who was very conservative and had a great deal of common sense.

    An English professor from my undergraduate alma mater is a liberal (well, moderate, really), and he has probably some of the best common sense, fiscal sense, and intellectual capacity of anyone I've ever known. He came from abject poverty to become an upper middle class professor in a field he loves.

    My point is simply this--political orientation (thoughtfully done) is a matter of philosophical assumptions and extensions thereof, not one's ability to reason. Now, I wouldn't trust the political musings of anyone who couldn't articulate their position with reason and logic, even if I agreed with their ultimate policies.
