    She's intelligent and educated and the idiocy that passes for news and entertainment in this country is downright insulting to such a person.

    I'll betcha 50 cents she has no idea who Snooki is--and if she knew, she'd be appalled.

    •  Its not like she couldn't find good sources if she (5+ / 0-)

      bothered to look.  That she doesn't even bother merely shows that, like most Americans, she's just the midern equivalent of fat, lazy white trash - albeit with an education.

      And yes, I know that's damned harsh.  It was meant to be.  This country used to pride itself on civics education and the even the hardiest working blue collar workers used to have pretty informed debates b/c they at least passed around one paper at work.
