    What you describe here is the calling card of baggers across the board.

    I remember some time ago, when the claim was made, that baggers tended to be college educated, and I wondered to myself, where on earth they would be getting those degrees, after displaying such incredible ignorance about topics that are very basic to American History and American Governance. Some of it very recent too.

    Some people get through college because it's an end to a means. But they are not academics. They imagine that if they stop learning that should make them experts, when often just the opposite is true.

    Thank you for sharing this thoughtful diary. I hope things work out well for you.
