I'm baffled

We elect a president who pronounces nuclear as "new-kyu-lar" and seems to take particular pride in not speaking well.

We have one presidential nominee who answers different questions with the exact same answer.

We have another presidential nominee who is articulate and well spoken. And he's branded an elitist.

I just heard Treasury Secretary Paulson speak, listing all the things the average American does with his money. In this list is "Send your kids to college." If those who display a low level of education are praised, those who are well-educated and show it are disparaged, why does anybody still want to send their kids to college?

The contradiction baffles me.
