You should be proud. You are the only person in the United States on a Friday afternoon that is watching this show.

Harvard. Isn’t that a Dutch word? Ard meaning earth or land of and Harv meaning woman of the night.

You only take flak when you’re over the target.

Evidently, she hit a nerve.

Good for her.

For someone who they say has zero chance of winning, the rats sure spend a lot of time agonizing over every little move that Christine O'Donnell makes. Is there something that they know but they're not saying? Hmmmmm?

Christine studied political philosophy at a lesser known institution with the same intensity as our Founding Fathers.

Yale and Harvard would be hard pressed to find a professor unwilling to teach in place of his teaching assistants.

I actually think the Dems are scared to death of this one because Delaware is so small and COD has a lot of money in the bank as well as a visit probably coming from Palin. The Dems cannot afford to lose this race.

If they do, you can start dusting off the Presidency for Palin in 2012.

What this country needs is fewer Ivy Leaguers in the Executive, Legislative and Judicial branches of government.

The consulting company I had, had a retained search division. We would find directors, CEO CFO’s, Medical Directors etc. My instructions to the staff: Any resumes with MBA from Ivy League go into the round file followed by Lawyers. Most are legacy, and don't know what the word work means, they are arrogant and destroyers of organizations. Most Lawyers couldn't run a Lemonade stand so end up in politics.

entertaining - but Jonathan Alter is too puny a figure to have killed journalism

certainly he represents a particularly grotesque instance of the breed, but so many “journalists” and editors of recent decades share his essential characteristics

Christine O’Donnell has done a great public service. The Dems and the lib-media are giving her all the heat, and meanwhile we see gop candidates build up leads in NH, WI, MO, CO, FL, NC, IL, SD, AR, and several other states, making a GOP Senate majority more possible.

Truly sublime!

Yes, I was wondering if you had a quotation. The actual words the man said, the sort of thing you put in between quotation marks - that’s what I meant. Alter said, “Not going to Yale is a cheap political trick”? Or was there more to that sentence? Did he actually say, “Christine O’Donnell not going to Yale is a cheap political trick”?

Even for Alter, that sentence makes no sense. What was the context?

Crap, I hate when I use the wrong pull quote. I meant to pull from the title, which actually has the word ‘cheap’ in it.
