Canadianna got me thinking.
In any debate over the relative intelligence of the Left or Right, Lefties always claim the high ground. They claim that they are the intellectual elite, while any Conservative is usually portrayed as a knuckle-dragging, mouth-breathing, gap-toothed moron.
And why do they consider themselves so far above we who are on the Right? Because they are the "intellectual elite" who are controlling the colleges and universities of this country.
Big deal. There are maybe a few thousand of them with a liberal arts degree that was turned into a PhD because of nothing more than their political views. Their thesis didn't have to make any sense whatsoever. As long as it meshed with their professor's political viewpoint, it was judged a passing grade.
As I've said before, some of the most idiotic people I've ever met had college degrees. Usually, college doesn't teach you how to think, it teaches you how to kiss your teacher's ass. If you do it for long enough, you get the Holy Grail of tenure.
But Liberals, having no grasp of the reality of numbers, think that because 1/100th of 1% of their ranks control the universities, that they are more intelligent than Conservatives.
Apparently, having a few thousand people in your ranks makes you the "intellectual elite".
It never occurs to them that the majority of the people voting for them are on the lower end of the IQ scale. They just know that they're smarter than the rest of the country!
Business degree vs. Liberal arts degree. Who do you think is more intelligent?
Running a business vs. running a beauracracy. Who do you think needs more brains?
