~ All I did was state that Mike is a good debator and unbiased in his political reasonings, and then was subsequently called (unprovoked of course), not only a "superman genius," but a "mindreader" even after an initial apology was made.

"And I'll tell you what ... if Stephen ever brags about his education, especially an education he has never been able to demonstrate, you have my permission to call him a genius, super-human or otherwise."
~ As you know, politics is a subject matter much like religion. Many people have opinions about which political party is best or which direction our country should take, etc. Yet, unless a person actually learns about the political process through books and study, that person is not going to understand politics, but merely spew forth opinions based on conjecture and biases of what one reads or sees through the media. Furthermore, that is still not enough! The ability to synthesize the political knowledge one obtains into unbiased and objective reasoning is the key to demonstrating one's education, and demonstrating that education in a, at the very least, above average manner.
