DOES A HARVARD EDUCATION MEAN THAT YOU ARE SMARTER THAN EVERYONE...AND SHOULD IVY LEAGUE GRADS BE THE ONLY ELIGIBLE CANDIDATES?
I ask this because I have read several blogs that state exactly that. The President should be superior to you and me. To me this sounds like a country run by rich elitist academics. Why can't the Sarah Palin's of the country, regular citizens, stake a claim for a shot at the Presidency? Why is it she is innately stupid because she wasn't educated at Harvard? Is this where our country is? Only the highly educated, elite, rich, intellectuals need apply? I think this is an altruistic approach to leadership. I heard a reporter asking someone who knew Sarah Palin if she was "intellectually curious". WTF? This has been a claim of the intellectual media types about George W. Bush. He isn't intellectually curious. Freaking blowhard academics who talk like Thurston Howell the third from Gilligan's Island. I ask this question because now the left and some on the right are saying Sarah is dumb. First she is a bad mother, then she is inexperienced and now its Dan Quayle-isms from the up the ass intellectual types who are stroking on the political canvas of Harvard uppity aristocrats. Seriously, how does the humble populist crowd really expect us to believe they give a shit about the "people" when they act like constipated, anal retentive wind bags whose brains are a bigger circumference than half the western united states because they are HAAARRVARD effing GRRRAADDUUATES. Big friggin'deal. So there you have it folks. Only the super smart and Ivy League educated need apply to run this country. That means the rich and the successful. So get off your moral high horse Dem's. Quit acting like you give a damn about the "common folk". YOU really just want to be above the serfs so they can worship your extra-curricular vocabulary and nuance bullshit. Excuse my french. Its hard not to be so refined being educated at a western NON ivy league school and all. We done been taught nuthin good about stuff. I's just stupid about what I should be sayin and doin with all them taxes. Guess I should just build me some roaads and give some talkin to some presidents in china. Such a splendid philosophy. How do we function without the intellectually superior? I suspect, according to some, that Obama is more qualified strictly because he has a Harvard education. Pretty elitist attitude oozing from the left who claims such a populist message.
