That's the same excuse all of Clinton's sycophants offer as well. I don't want a scumbag in the Oval Office, no matter how "smart" he is, and I don't want one paid with taxpayer money to teach young people, either.
Besides, how smart can they really be? Clinton doesn't even know when he's having sex and Churchill doesn't think fake credentials can be traced.
Whether he is as bright as you believe or not, he is a fraud and a liar. Character trumps brains every time.
As far as his cleaning Hannity's clock, Hannity never claimed to be an articulate intellectual. That is not his forte. His forte is being willing to go toe to toe with vermin that would sicken most people to have to associate with on a regular basis, day in and day out, and call them to accounts.
Let Churchill try and clean Rush's clock. Then you might not be so enamored with the ability of such trash to"raise the scale" of anything, and you may learn to be more discerning and less easily swayed by every good liar that comes down the pike.
I commend you for making the effort required to be a "Teenaged Conservative" rather than taking the easy route and swallowing hole the propaganda that immerses you from every direction and calling it "enlightened".
But unless you learn to spot the vipers you'll be sucked in and find yourself mouthing the liberal mantras preceded by "I used to be a Conservative", as if you've seen the light rather than having been sucked into the darkness.
So as someone who has been around a good deal beyond my teens, and come through a reverse transformation from being a gung-ho "Teen-aged Liberal", I just ask that you evaluate what you hear, and who you hear it from, carefully.
