Now, I have to admit I never understood the concept of ‘hey, I can see having a beer with this guy, I should vote for him for president’. First, not so sure the President should be a big drinker. Two, I know lots ofpeopleI can drink with and I’m really not sure any of them have what it takes to be President. And Three, I just think it takes brains, not beer-drinking to be President. Today a friend link me to an essay by Libba Bray on why she wants a smart President. Now I’ve enjoied her novels ( I have one left) and reviewed them here, but this is a well written essay. She asks the question lots of people I know have been asking, “When did being smart and educated become a bad thing”?
