Some Smart Girls Are Easy
I'm not making this up; it's real. Go here to see.
Here is the college brilliance of our President, preserved by Ms. McNear and as quoted but Ms. Daum:
He calls "The Waste Land" "an ecstatic vision which runs from Münzer to Yeats" and encourages McNear to "read [Eliot's] essay on Tradition and the Individual Talent, as well as Four Quartets, when he's less concerned with depicting moribund Europe.... Remember how I said there's a certain kind of conservatism which I respect more than bourgeois liberalism — Eliot is of this type."[What does Münzer (Müntzer?) have to do with The Waste Land? I say nothing at all, but I'm apparently less brainy than the President, or Ms. McNear or Ms. Daum, although I'm not the only one to think the quoted portions are both pretentious and a little vapid.]
Ms. Daub's breathless work here is just another version of the President is the smartest man to ever hold the office.
Until I see his SATs and his transcripts from Occidental and Columbia, he is a 100 IQ Chance the Gardener and certainly the worst President we've had to suffer though since Wilson.
Love Sowell. Haven't had time to watch that series at NRO.
Some of the smartest people I have ever met never graduated university. An undergraduate degree has become a first-rung credential, nothing more. And at least Bush 43 used his Harvard MBA in business. Whatever Obama may have learned at Harvard Law is obscured by his overweening arrogance and narcissism.
Unfortunately, there are 'way too many among us who believe that they already know it all, and so find no need to listen....
Saw photos of your apartment in the ROK. Looks like your room at home. See ya', Bud.
