Don't you have to have a bit more than a Bachelor's degree to be a prof? And what, pray tell, might she teach? Geography? (She knows where Russia is, but didn't know Africa was a continent not a country?) Economics? Are there terminal degrees available in whining and victimology?

How on earth could anyone think this woman knows enough to do the job? Presumably only people without a college education, or a completely 4th rate one -- like hers.

I suppose it's elitist to think college professors should be highly educated people, able to speak well and write.
