Its political oversimplification, but I like it.

I see a lot of commentary from the american right about how the "liberal intellectual elite" are trying to take over the nation and I think... surely the intellectual elite would be a better group to run the place than what they have now. It just seems to me that *clever* people could do a better job.

trying to take over the nation

Which is a funny accusation, coming from the people that ARE taking over the nation. (See: Prez, both houses, new noms for Supreme Court...)

I know, I mean for an intellectual elite they're doing a pretty shite job of it, which would lead me to believe they're not all that... um... intellectual. I have no idea WHERE that leaves them.

Where it usually leaves them! Contradiction.

They are?!? Shit. No one told me!
Seriously, I'm clever, and I don't WANT that job, but you're pretty much right. :)
