Partly because beauty and brains is considered a rare combination. Blonde girls are beautiful, so the other part is assumed like a default. You know it would be unfair if a person has best of both the worlds !
And partly because of jealousy. Don't you think beauty and brains is deadly combination? Wouldn't you like to be handsome and intelligent? But most of the people aren't both. Actually, many of them including yours truly (unless the lights are dim and my mouth shut ) ), are neither. Even this last remark is borrowed from someone from this forum, you see.

Partially so, but part of it is that women who are not real bright and nearly beautiful can die their hair blonde so that dumb men will fall all over themselves to get to them. Something that would not happen if they stayed Brunettes.
A dumb blonde will get farther in the world than the same woman as a brunette.
Same reason why there are so many "Sardarji" jokes !
Ah yes, my vast repertoire of Sardarji jokes... What's a "Sardarji" again? My first guess would some type of canned fish, but I'm probably thinking of sardines.
Build a man a fire, and he'll be warm for a day. Set a man on fire, and he'll be warm for the rest of his life.

What's a "Sardarji" again?
Its a slang (not necessarily contemptuous) for the Sikh religious community. However, some members of the community take exception to being called sardarji instead of Sikh. Sardarji jokes are made and circulated with the same assumption about Sikhs as that for blondes : that they are naive. However, while some members of this community have enough self confidence to laugh at such jokes(as long as it remains decent), others may object to them.
