PENN JILLETTE SAYS “OBAMA IS WICKED SMART.” A reader emails: “The given subject of the video,’An Atheist’s Guide to the 2012 election’ isn’t what caught my attention. It’s that near the beginning he calls Obama ‘wicked smart’ and says he’s a great speaker! I didn’t listen any further. I lost a lot of respect for him.”

I have to say that the evidence for Obama’s being especially bright is unclear.

UPDATE: Reader Brett Rogers responds to Jillette: “Bullshit.” Heh.
