  •  Clearly, she needs some CPE classes. (1+ / 0-)

    Judging from the bio on her House web site, the Representative is very proud of her PhD in Education. (Throughout the bio refers to her as "Dr. Foxx".) Teachers must take Continuing Professional Education classes to stay abreast of new developments in their field.

    A good response to her statement would be to send her and Liddy lots of e mails asking if she has taken CPE classes, to keep up with the dramatic changes in her chosen field since she got her degree.

    However, if you look at DarkSyde's review off Chris Mooney's new book, you'll see that her position is understandable.  The book discusses research documenting what DarkSyde calls "the smart idiot effect". That is that "the more educated conservatives are, the more sure they are about their false beliefs."

    So be charitable. Foxx is not a sociopath; she just got born with a Conservative Brain, and all that education she worked so hard to get made it harder for her to tell the difference between facts and false beliefs.
