A note on the Amazon ads: I've chosen to display current events titles in the Amazon box. Unfortunately, Amazon appears to promote a disproportionate number of angry-left books. I have no power over it at this time. Rest assured, I'm still a conservative.

I'm overqualified: I'll come out and say it. I'd like a job as an editorial writer/columnist/blogger. I'd like to get paid for writing about whatever I want to write about.

Unfortunately, it appears that I'm too intelligent to qualify in today's newspaper industry.

Exhibit B (exhibit A was Maureen Dowd, below) comes from Xrlq who notes that editorial writers at the Los Angeles Times don't have to master reading comprehension or critical thinking skills.

So, I'm taking suggestions for the most effective and least painful methods for lowering my IQ.

"So, I'm taking suggestions for the most effective and least painful methods for lowering my IQ." Go to college and major in sociology. Or would that be too painful?
 
I think this would be pretty painful, and I'm certainly not planning on trying it, but you could vote for kerry this November.
 
Would voting for Kerry be too painful? Anecdotal evidence suggests that would do the trick.
 
Beer, lots of beer.
 
Four more beers! Four more beers! Four more beers! Etc.
 
We are all overqualified and underpaid :) Except 1% of the population.
 
If you're looking for a job with a west coast newspaper, I'd suggest using what the rest of the writers used. Spend a couple months eating acid and breathing through a bong.
 
Become a judge. :-)

(Old lawyer joke: What do you call a lawyer with half his brain removed? "Your Honor")
 
Go get the friends DVD and watch it non-stop for about 3 weeks. It is a proven scientific fact that every episode drops your IQ by 0.02 points. After the first week you will already be stupid enough to enjoy it.
