Thursday, April 05, 2007...doesn't mean you can read. No offense to those of you out there who have gotten their Ph.D.'s. God knows I don't have one yet. But when I'm watching CSPAN and this professor is claiming that George Washington was a serious intellect on the grounds of the depth of the Farewell Address, well, I'm just amazed. Anyone who's read about the writing of the Farewell Address knows that James Madison wrote the first draft of it (when Washington considered retiring) and Alexander Hamilton wrote the final draft four years later (when he finally did retire). It's hard to claim that someone is an intellectual heavyweight when he doesn't write his own stuff. Do you homework before spouting off, dude.
