Americans for Brains

Joe Klein has a funny/disturbing post over at Time’s Swampland about Newt Gingrich’s latest kernel of wisdom making rounds in the wonkiverse.

It would be doubly hilarious if I weren’t convinced that people actually *believe* Gingrich’s brand of fearmongering.

Sigh.

I know I’m biased—especially since I have $120K plus left to pay for my terminal degree—but this recent and more virulent wave of anti-intellectualism has got to stop. It’s morally irresponsible and totally cuckoobananas.

I’m going to propose a pro-intellect, pro-reason campaign as election season begins to pick up: Americans for Brains. Who’s with me?
