The Claremont Review has a long article by William Voegeli explaining the Tea Party movement in part as a rebellion against educated elites. "Our new meritocratic masters have been more conspicuously smart than wise. They know a lot, but don't know what they don't know." President Obama, the article observes, "is a graduate of Columbia and Harvard Law School, married to a graduate of Princeton and Harvard Law. His mother had a doctorate in anthropology, his father was a Harvard-trained economist, and the grandmother who raised him in Hawaii was a bank vice president."
