Avatar said something yesterday that got me thinking about Beck and Maddow having some kind of debate. Avatar said Beck has read more and would kill Maddow in a debate. I find this all hard to believe but please take a look at the following. (I will start this off with, 'insert lesbian jokes here', _______________________ then read her credentials) Dr. MAddows credentials...(or did you not know this?) A graduate of Castro Valley High School in Castro Valley, Maddow earned a degree in public policy from Stanford University in 1994. At graduation she was awarded the John Gardner Fellowship. She was also the recipient of a Rhodes Scholarship and began her postgraduate study in 1995 at Lincoln College, Oxford. In 2001, she earned a Doctorate in Philosophy (DPhil) in politics from Oxford University. Her thesis is titled HIV/AIDS and Health Care Reform in British and American Prisons. She was the first openly gay American to win a Rhodes scholarship. She is a doctor of politics and a Rhodes scholar. You are comparing her to beck knowledge wise? Seriously? Beck is an alcoholic and a shock jock. Beck was born in Everett, Washington and raised as a Roman Catholic. He obtained his first broadcast job as a disc-jockey for his hometown radio station at the age of 13 after winning a contest. When his mother died, Beck moved to Bellingham, where he attended high school. After graduation, he worked at radio stations in Provo, Utah, Washington D.C. and New Haven, Connecticut. Along the way, Beck married and divorced his first wife. He also struggled with drug and alcohol abuse, and went through recovery in the mid 1990s. After marrying his second wife Tania in 1999, the couple converted to Mormonism. Beck's array of media outlets have brought him wealth and popularity, along with recurring controversy and criticism. Beck's provocative and polarizing views can range from being seen as principled and revelatory, to erroneous and offensive. His supporters believe he is a Constitutional stalwart defending traditional American values from secular progressivism, while his critics contend he promotes conspiracy theories and employs incendiary rhetoric. Beck has read more than maddow? Seriously? You said this. Wow. Again, other than the ubiquitous lesbian jokes, what have you got? Avatar, please come back in here and explain why you think Beck has read more or is more intelligent than Dr. Maddow. Yes there are some dumb educated people out there, but show me where Dr. Maddow has shown herself to be "dumb".
