JOHN CHUCKMAN COMMENT: TRUMP AND PALIN – AMERICAN POLITICS’ NEW ODD COUPLE – THE PART OF PALIN’S MAKE-UP NEVER DISCUSSED BY THE PRESS   Leave a comment

COMMENT POSTED TO AN ARTICLE IN THE GUARDIAN

 

There is a very big difference between Trump and Palin, one not noted in the article.

Trump, despite some awful views, is essentially an intelligent person. Sometimes smart people embrace bad views.

Palin, however, and I don’t know why few ever say it in the press, is simply stupid. She says things which are just plain stupid many times, and not just things which are controversial.

Palin didn’t have the ability to even finish her one term as governor of one of smallest-population and least complicated states in the union.

Palin also took 6 years at 5 different colleges to earn a BA in a “bird” subject like “communications.”

Now, for those who understand American education, that says a very great deal.

There are so many marginal to nearly worthless academic institutions in America run as for-profit businesses, where you can sail through virtually buying a degree, that her educational Odyssey is bizarre and telling.

But she still has, remarkably enough, a bit of a fan club out there, and Trump’s shrewd enough to exploit it.
