Dick Armey Dives Into the Shallow End

September 27, 2002

Re "Armey's Remarks Assailed," Sept. 25:

House Majority Leader Dick Armey (R-Texas), speaking at an event in Florida, was quoted by a local paper as saying: "I always see two Jewish communities in America: one of deep intellect and one of shallow, superficial intellect.

"Conservatives have a deeper intellect and tend to have occupations of the brain in fields like engineering, science and economics," Armey said, while liberals flock to "occupations of the heart." It would seem that Rep. Armey is the exception to the rule.

I suppose Armey is excused from being included in his comment that "liberals are generally not very bright, and conservatives are deep thinkers." His asinine remark is thinking in its most shallow form.

Re Armey's comments on liberals: No wonder Armey feels as he does, after a lifetime spent hanging around such noted deep thinkers as the Bushes.
