Who's Reaching The Masses?

From the Drudge Report - 7/9/12

BOOK SALES RACE 7/1/12: GLENN BECK 'COWARDS' TOPS WITH 11,903 SOLD FOR WEEK [73,392 SINCE RELEASE] KLEIN 'AMATEUR' IN PLACE SCANS ANOTHER 9,596 [114,913] O'REILLY AT SHOW 'LINCOLN' 7,907 [324,977]

Just about everything academia and modern elites hate, more Americans seem to love. Success is the sweetest revenge. Gotta love it.

And here's even more evidence that the self-appointed "experts" who want to tell the rest of us how to think, what to think, and how to interpret events that happened 150 years ago (when they can't even interpret what happened yesterday), don't even have a clue about what they're doing in their own back yard:


Public-school employees have doubled in 40 years while student enrollment has increased by only 8.5%—and academic results have stagnated.

Quite damning, isn't it? Any they have absolutely NO excuses. They've brought it on themselves. Which is why they should, as a general rule, be ignored. Astonishing. More here.

And, finally, reality . . .

Two-thirds of likely voters say President Obama has kept his 2008 campaign promise to change America — but it’s changed for the worse, according to a sizable majority. 
Meets utopia . . .

However, a president can alter the mood of the nation, making changes possible that once seemed improbable.
The former is based on facts, the latter on what historian Paul Johnson refers to as "leagues of intellectuals" verdicts:


"Beware committees, conferences and leagues of intellectuals. Distrust public statements from their serried ranks. Discount their verdicts on political leaders and important events." ~ Historian Paul Johnson (Intellectuals ~ page 342)

Again, best to ignore, or at the very best distrust, these people. They're no wiser than the rest of us. As a matter of fact, many of them appear to be quite stupid.
