Scott Walker is going to Harvard.

To give a speech about education. 

Walker, who never graduated from college.

That's a credential, no?

They're gonna need a translator, which for Harvardese just involves adding superfluous words. That means "extra" words in Harvardese. I know my shit.

It is indeed a credential. Harvard has expertly managed its brand. You walk by the place and buy a coffee, and you get a little piece of a degree. Harvard gets just a tiny piece of that; that's all it needs. Like Coca Cola and Disney.

Funny. I thought Walker was besieged by corruption charges and had been fitted with an ankle bracelet to keep him from leaving the state.

That's certainly what garbage's posts indicate.

I sense a trap. Don't go, Governor!

True, true. The humanities at Harvard are dominated by "flat-earth" intellects. Brainwise, they're all living in the 19th century.

What, did Walker claim to be 1/16 Indian?

"Walker, who never graduated from college."

I didn't know that. Given he is a rational, get things done type guy, I should have guessed.

It's a good thing that Harvard is on its summer calendar. Can you imagine the pandemonium on campus if the undergrads were in town? Walker probably wouldn't be able to walk in the room without getting shouted down.

(The comments by the anti-Walker folks on the Channel3000.com article linked in the post are priceless. I felt like making some popcorn.)

Most of the people at Harvard couldn't get a degree from Harvard under the requirements for graduation it had originally. They'd have to master Latin, Greek and at least some Hebrew and read and be able to explain a whole bunch of dead white men's writings. Foreign languages would be beyond most of them and the views those dead white men held on liberty, equality and the obligations of a citizen in a free society would make their heads explode.

The ongoing faith of some in credentialism is naive and rather touching. The amount they're willing to pay for credentials is, OTOH, quite frightening.
