The education president: U.S. has too many intellectuals
This quote must be read to believed. It comes from former Indiana senator Dan Coats, the White House "point man" on the Harriet Miers nomination:
"If great intellectual powerhouse is a qualification to be a member of the Court and represent the American people and the wishes of the American people, and to interpret the Constitution, then I think we have a Court so skewed on the intellectual side that we may not be getting representation of America as a whole."
Finally, the mediocre will be getting their voice on the high court. Well, the ignorant have theirs in the White House, so I guess that's fair.
