Slamming journalists

I read a commenter today dismissing any comparison between Sarah Palin and Margaret Thatcher because Lady Thatcher has a degree in chemistry, whereas Palin believes that the world was created in six days.

I have no idea if Palin believes literally in the biblical story of creation, and don't really care. However, I, too, think it's ludicrous to compare the two, mainly because we have the benefit of four decades of retrospective to examine Thatcher's accomplishments without a corresponding history for Palin.

But I had to laugh at the writer's point, because Palin has a degree in journalism, so one could argue that the writer doesn't think much of her education. Which doesn't say much for an overwhelming number of journalists in America.

Including, come to think of it, me.
