I'm currently in the process of re-reading Beverly Gray's insightful book Roger Corman - An Unauthorized Biography of the Godfather of Indie Filmmaking (2000). It was a pleasure reading it the first time around. Last night I came across this little passage discussing Corman's politics:
... Roger once informed his young children (in the presence of then assistant Anna Roth) that Democrats are naturally superior in terms of both "IQ and compassion."
I've long admired Roger Corman.
