A Cow Is Born

A measure of the absence of any realistic self-appraisal is
Ms. McCain's failure to grasp that her prominence as a "writer," rather than as a Paris Hilton-style reality show performer, is owed first to her famous father, and second, to the fact that this is the Age of the Idiot.

Idiots have come into their own in a big way, courtesy of depraved consumers, and complicit TV producers and publishers, of pixel and paper alike. The duller you are and the louder you crow in contemporary America, the better you do. Clearly, Meghan McCain is not working with much ─ and is eminently qualified to dim debate in the Age of the Idiot. A familial predisposition, it would seem. John McCain finished 894th out of 899 at the Naval Academy and lost five jets. As IQ ace Steve Sailer once quipped, "To lose one plane over Vietnam may be regarded as a heroic tragedy; to lose five planes here and there looks like carelessness." -- By ILANA MERCER

Your Say

Lose five planes and you will never make Admiral, even if your father and grandfather did.

Steve Sailer may be an "IQ Ace," but he's apparently not above cribbing from Oscar Wilde.

I can't quite believe what I just wacethd. Can someone really be so blinkered, ignorant and plain misguided?Speaking as a neutral with only half an eye on the US elections from over here in the UK, I'd be with Obama if voting McCain might let this sort of nut near the corridors of power.
