    Certainly not. Those two law schools are not necessarily better than many others. It’s the quality of reasoning that counts.

    It’s disturbing and an example of the elitism that permeates much of the thinking in Washington, DC.

    The folks in “fly over country” see this as another disconnect between them and a dysfunctional Federal government.

    It’s a great example of what feeds the Tea Party movement in the United States.
