Even More Comic Relief with a Tinge of Sadness

My daughter sent me this link. Click here to view it. Another commentary not to be missed. Perhaps the most telling aspect of the link is the question at the end: Why do people respect intelligence in every other field but ridicule it in politics?

I've been wondering the same thing. After nearly eight years of broken English, we have the opportunity to elect a Harvard educated scholar who graduated with honors to lead our country. Yet Barack Obama, who not incidentally walked away from a mid-six figure salary to work to rebuild the community on the South Side of Chicago, gets no credit from the illiterati for having the intelligence to address our nation's problems.

More later.
