    who are offended or intimidated by relatively smart, well-spoken people they define as over-educated, elitist snobs, then I don't think the level of discourse should be dumbed down to accommodate them.  This is why politicians and network executives were so reticent to question the baloney being fed to the masses by the guy with the perpetually goofy smirk and his cohorts - for fear of offending the less-than-discerning voters and viewers, which is not a good reason to dumb down the reporting or the political discourse.
