Default Re: Post-Post-Racial America (John McWhorter & Glenn Loury)

Quoting Don:
we call her ignorant and uneducated because she is obviously out of her depth when she discusses policy. If anything, this has very little to do with where she went to school and everything to do with her attitude towards knowledge and expertise. Someone interested in good governance should continue to learn about these things long after getting a diploma. Palin obviously has not.
Sounds reasonable, but would examples of "good governance" include, for example, waiting 60 days to get down to business and meet with the BP CEO, declaring Arizona's law unconstitutional when it is a facsimile of the unenforced federal law, firing your Afghanistan commander over a Rolling Stone article, firing Sherrod and rehiring her over the course of the same weekend and blaming Youtube? Is that what you mean by good governance? Is it a Harvard Law degree and all the other b.s. community development bona fides that enable you to perform such good governance?
