Another Thought on Liberal Intelligence

I wrote the previous post right before turning in last night. As I was drifting off, I was reminded of a wonderful quote by William F. Buckley about the cluelessness of smart people. He famously said:

I would rather be governed by the first 2,000 names in the Boston phone book than by the faculty of Harvard.

The current bunch of Ivy Leaguers running the government on behalf of the Obama-Pelosi-Reid troika represent a massive validation of Buckley’s insight. ┬áIn the name of creating and saving “jobs,” they have been relentlessly waging war on the nation’s job providers–small and large businesses.

Clearly, I’m not smart enough to understand how that makes sense.
