Smarter Than the Average Politician


A team of Israeli members of parliament finished in the middle of the pack in a televised IQ quiz. They beat teams of models and bodybuilders, but finished behind high school students and lawyers. But the models and bodybuilders may want to demand a rematch. The politicians have admitted to cheating on the test. "Like children, we want to succeed, (because) the whole country is watching," said Haim Katz, a member of parliament from the ruling Likud Party.
