Poll question: Harvard and Yale over-rated?
After watching Dubya earlier and Lieberman now on Harball, I have to say I am not impressed.

Sorry, polls are turned off at Level 3.

2. Sorry, Must of been a glitch in the software
My poll did not post right and I can't edit it. It must be a Harvard or Yale grad who designed the software.

5. Well Dubya at least is a result of
the elites having special access to such institutions. There is also the issue that having a good academic record when going into college is not neccessarily an indicator of general intelligence and certainly not common sense.

I go to a decent private college and I am constantly impressed by the number of absolute morons who not only got into here, but get better grades than I do because they just happen to have mastered the set of skills needed to get good grades.

8. Good point.
Schools rarely do a good job at teaching critical thinking.
