an interesting lesson

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

Steve Benen writes in AlterNet about Bush’s recent comment while introducing an economist:

"It's an interesting lesson here, by the way. He's an adviser. Now, he is the Ph.D., and I am a C-student -- or was a C-student. Now, what's that tell you?”

What that tells me is that intelligence and education are not valued by the current administration. It tells me that the privilege inherent in being a scion of a wealthy and powerful family can buy Ivy League diplomas, a business career, and public office. It tells me that someone needs to quit pretending to read adult books and get back to his brush clearing and bike riding.
