Sentinel's Harmon claimed parasite "explains" Bill Clinton's supposed "lower" IQ and education level

››› ››› MEDIA MATTERS STAFF

Discussing the single-celled parasite Toxoplasma gondii in a December 28 column, Gary Harmon of The Daily Sentinel of Grand Junction stated that "men infected with the parasite are characterized by lower IQs, lower levels of education and have shorter attention spans, which pretty much explains [former President] Bill Clinton ... "

In 1968, Clinton graduated from Georgetown University, where he majored in international affairs. He went on to earn a Rhodes Scholarship to Oxford University and received a law degree from Yale University in 1973.

From Harmon's December 28 column in The Daily Sentinel,
" '007 may get license to shill":

If you love your botox, '007 could bring the next, even better best thing: Toxoplasma gondii, a common parasite that infectious-disease researcher Nicky Boulter said has some outstanding properties.

Women infected with this particular organism are considered more outgoing, friendly and attractive, and, uh, way more friendly, than are non-infected females.

On the other hand, men infected with the parasite are characterized by lower IQs, lower levels of education and have shorter attention spans, which pretty much explains Bill Clinton, who clearly doesn't share with Hillary.

Toxoplasma gondii "can make men behave like alley cats and women behave like sex kittens," said Boulter, who is employed by the Sydney University of Technology in Australia, where he [sic] remains in hiding from the makers of Viagra, Cialis, Coors, Budweiser, PBR, and other concoctions, who have formed a consortium to hire Jack Daniel and the Gallo brothers to "explain" the concept of turf.
