Einstein, just after Gandalf tricked him and he turned into stone - per Conservapedia, pic from j.colman at flickr.com

Yesterday Watertiger made note of a study that America’s Generation X was XIIth in the world in college degrees. As I’m at least a decade older than the nation’s 25 to 34 year olds let me say “Suck It!”, my generation was at least Top 5. And we didn’t have Liberty U., Regent U., or even Kaplan U. (go Fightin’ Strip Malls!).

I credit Art Fleming’s Jeopardy over the inferior Alex Trebek’s Jeopardy.

But really is this a decline in our national intellectual resources? We must bring on the analogies that disprove this finding. Conservatives you love analogies (wonder if that plays a role?) show me brains are for thinking, not eating:

Conservapedia founder and Eagle Forum University instructor Andy Schlafly — Phyllis Schlafly’s son — has found one more liberal plot: the theory of relativity.

Oh for f**k’s sake!



In 1949, I decided to wrestle professionally, starting my career in Texas. In my debut, I defeated Abe Kashey, with former World Heavyweight boxing Champion Jack Dempsey as the referee. In 1950, I captured the NWA Junior Heavyweight title. In 1953, I won the Chicago version of the NWA United States Championship. I became one of the most well-known stars in wrestling during the golden age of television, thanks to my exposure on the Dumont Network, where I wowed audiences with my technical prowess. I was rumored to be one of the highest paid wrestlers during the 1950s, reportedly earning a hundred thousand dollars a year. My specialty was "the Sleeper Hold" and the founding of modern, secular, Turkey.

Oops, sorry, that's the biography of Verne Gagne with a touch of Mustafa Kemal.

I'm just an average moron who in reality is a practicing civil rights and employment attorney in fly-over country .
