    because of the hypocrisy. Virtually all Rethug politicians have been to some sort of college, even those as wilfully ignorant as Palin or Imhofe. Many, maybe most (if not currently the most public) of them have been to elite Ivy League institutions, along with the Villagers who present Rethug climate anti-science as perfectly reasonable. They all know better; they've all just agreed to say "Devil take the hindmost."
    Nor do they literally believe that graduates of public universities working as, say, freelance copy editors belong in any practical sense to an "elite," but they get paid to say so on TV. And just because the strategy didn't work on Obama in 2008 doesn't mean it's not worth trying until it does.
