Quote of the Day, Tuesday February 17

“It is ironic that the United States should have been founded by intellectuals, for throughout most of our political history, the intellectual has been for the most part either an outsider, a servant, or a scapegoat.”— Richard Hofstadter, former Columbia University professor and historian

It’s a day that seems richin irony. What can I say?
