    I see it as, he should definitely have taken the job, absolutely. There is no doubt it was the smart thing to do. It doesn't mean he's all that good at it or that I agree with his opinions on some things, or that I think he's all that intelligent overall, but he sure as hell made the smart decision to take this job.

    Although that seems like a no-brainer on his part. Even I'd be smart enough to make that decision.

    Exactly. I'd do it not only for the money, which I'm sure is decent, but the travel opportunities. How often does one get the chance to visit all of these different countries just to ask people questions?

    I don't get why they feel the need to discredit Joe "the Plumber"? Doesn;t the need to discredit someone imply that they have a reason to be creditted to begin with?

    Commandment I: Thou Shall Not Make The Obama Look Bad.
    Commandment II: Thou Shall Villify All That Do.

    Why?

    You kinda slipped right off into the deep end there.

    My point was merely that academic credentialing is nothing more than a credential. And has we have seen recently, academic credentialing has not prevented journalists from becoming daily editorialists in their articles or mitigated their social change activism.

    We should just consider that everyone is just as smart as everyone else and we can all do each others jobs just as good... Hey, Kenneth Lay got busted so that means that Joe Plumber could run an energy company?
    Hyperbole, much? You'd do well to read more closely.

    No, what it means is that academic credentialing is nothing more than a credential.

    Talk to old school newspaper guys and they'll be up-front with you that j-school ain't all that and, in fact, has become as infected with liberal do-goodism as the cultural studies departments leading to j-school grads who want to solve social problems rather than report the news.

    So do their heads explode because they then would have to villify Obama whenever he makes a gaffe?

    Example: Warning warning 57 states! Warning!!! Head must explode! Warning!!! Boom!

    Their Commandments naturally lead to contradictions.
    If their heads explode trying to deal with them -- well, that's OK by me.

    As if the bar could be lowered further...

    True.

    But I place him one slight notch below Ann Coulter.
    No men are anywhere, and Im allowed to go in, because Im the owner of the pageant and therefore Im inspecting it, Trump said... Is everyone OK? You know, theyre standing there with no clothes. Is everybody OK? And you see these incredible looking women, and so I sort of get away with things like that.

    I don't know. They keep surprising me. Joe The Plumber was definitely a surprise.
