    It is not elitist to say you need a college degree to do well in this market, the ones that make money without a degree (or a solid trade) are becoming more and more scarce.
    A college degree gaurantees nothing.

    For some reason saying college is essential has become politically divisive.

    Damn partsian Right Wingers would make drinking water divisive if Sean, Rushbo and company told them drinking soda pop was a symbol of freedumb. Hell, I used to argue against some of the folks about smoking cigarettes. In fact, a few of them still think there is nothing wrong with puffing the coffin nails.

    Obviously liberal/progressives do. Shame on them. There must be better ways to get ones claws into kids for life.
    Degrees are only worthless to those who haven't got one.

    No, I'd say it's probably a bigger sample set than that C. Why else would all these kids be crying for student load debt forgiveness?

    Geeze, why proglibs are so anxious to encourage insurmountable debt is remarkable. As I wrote before, there has got to be a better way to enslave kids than the way Progs are going about doing it.

    Does that somehow validate your superiority complex? No wonder ...

    Attacking kids who are not running for office is offensive, childish, and mean spirited.

    You're actually arguing that Palin isn't a cretin from trailertown USA.

    This is what Palin got for her edukashun:


    "This Statue of Liberty was gifted to us by foreign leaders, really as a warning to us, it was a warning to us to stay unique and to stay exceptional from other countries. Certainly not to go down the path of other countries that adopted socialist policies.”

    "Paul Revere warned the British that they weren't going to be taking away our arms, by ringing those bells and making sure as he was riding his horse through town to send those warning shots and bells that we were going to be secure and we were going to be free."

    Hardly germane to the conversation at hand.... No VP's campaign... they are selected. Are you trying to refute the argument at Palin is our generation's biggest beneficiary of affirmative action (she got promoted over the equally to more qualified because she was a woman), because she did not have the chance to "earn" the job? If so, its a weak retort.

    The VP is almost always an 'affirmative action' selection in that the candidate wants a capable warm body (the "best" or "most qualified" is rarely a criteria and never the only criteria) that fills a particular demographic criteria deemed advantageous to the campaign. In 2008, that criteria was "female conservative".

    Obama was running for US Senate. He was already considered a rising star in the Democratic Party (which you would know, given your trading card collection) and known for his oratory skills. Being selected to speak at a party convention is a normal step to showcase a rising star. (Each party does this...but, why am I telling you, you are the astute observer?) It is not even remotely comparable to waking up one morning as mayor of Alaska and going to bed that evening as heartbeat away (and a 72 year old heart, at that) from the most powerful position in the world, all because one person selected you. You had a great analogy, which was comparing Palin's selection to that of Ferraro's.... those are the same thing..... two people selected substantially because they were women.

    Palin's leap from obscurity to national prominence, as a result of being "selected" primarily because of her sex (unless you want to make the argument that McCain was worried about carrying Alaska), is much different than what Obama did, which was to earn his stripes following the traditional path of a rising star in a political party.
