MooPig Correlations "Sorry to report: The Best Minds are not in Charge"

Response to Fondue Symposium at  #71 HERE

“Obama's address [stem cell research] was morally unserious in the extreme. It was populated, as his didactic discourses always are, with a forest of straw men.” (Prager, Dennis. 03.17.2009)

Tuesday, March 17, 2009 | Excerpts from Discourse by Prager
Brilliance is Overrated
by Dennis Prager at Conservative Talk Radio
"That is why people were persuande into having their babies listen to Mozart after it was reported that listening to Mozart -- even in utero -- would make babies smarter. As an occasional orchestra conductor, I am delighted when anyone of any age is exposed to classical music. But love of music was not an issue here -- the Mozart-for-babies craze was about love of brains, not love of music."

"That is why, for example, people assume that a Nobel laureate in physics has something particularly intelligent to say about social policy. In fact, there is no reason at all to assume that a Nobel physicist has more insight into health care issues or capital punishment than a high school physics teacher ..."
"Intellectuals, e.g., those with graduate degrees, have among the worst, if not the worst, records on the great moral issues of the past century. Intellectuals such as the widely adulated French intellectual Jean Paul Sartre were far more likely than hardhats to admire butchers of humanity like Stalin and Mao."
The reason we have too few solutions to the problems that confront people -- in their personal lives as well as in the political realm -- is almost entirely due to a lack of common sense, psychological impediments to clear thinking, a perverse value system, or a lack of self-control, -- or all four.

If we would benefit from intellectuals (as distinct from the very smart) as POTUS, then we would seek out our presidential timber among academe. But many on campuses have too little common sense or real world perspective to pour pisx out of a boot!

Still, Dubya was dense, is a brick and incredibly incurious. As I noted in my 4:25 post, it tells me nothing that a son of privilege like him got into Yale (with scores too low otherwise).

HOWEVER, it ALSO tells me nothing (given AA and PC) that Obama graduated from Harvard Law. He had done NOTHING in an executive capacity in his entire life which suggested the aptitude for this job-- even Presidente Jorge Bush had been a popular 2-term guvner of a large state... but the Peter Principle would be proven in his case-- his Zionist advisers played him like a Stradivarius to get us into the wrong profligate war for Israel's benefit. Just a bit more discernment might have seen thru that.

Elly May Clampett -- Situation Comedy :: The return to the more mundane sensibilities of comedy unencumbered with the angst of messages also seemed to satisfy the needs of television audiences in the 1960s and 1970s. During this time CBS developed the theme of rural (or “hick”) sitcoms, which seemed to hit a responsive chord with audiences. The idea wasn't new.
Indeed, Ma Perkins, a radio soap opera with a homespun countrified theme, ran for 7,065 episodes, realizing its final broadcast on November 25, 1960, with Ma telling her loyal listeners, “Goodbye, and may God bless you.”
In 1959, under the leadership of newly appointed network president James Aubrey, the tone and substance of CBS programming changed. Under his guidance, CBS acquired one of television's greatest hits and longest-running sitcoms. Combining the themes of rural humor and urban chic, The Beverly Hillbillies, which began its network run in 1962 and lasted for nine seasons, was the highest-rated television program for the first two seasons it was broadcast. ... Irene Ryan as Granny. The younger members of the clan were played by Max Baer [Jethro] and Donna Douglas [Elly May]. (SOURCE)

The program struck a comic chord with audiences, who reveled in the down-home behavior of the Clampetts and their ability to best the conniving city slickers who tried to take advantage of them. (PHOTO's from Here)

Draw your own conclusions; but I suppose the outcome is that the greatest minds are not governing the USA like has been the pattern for the first two hundred plus change years.

[... I thank the Lord everyday, as you should too, that I am not leading the Nation ...]

Now we are a nation like all others, where 'Global Chic' meets 'Innocence,' -or- 'Urban Hype' meets 'Bucolic Stupefaction' ... and the former is dominating.

You said: “One day Britney Spears will be no more popular than Donna Douglas is today, but people will still be interested in moving houses.”

For folks like me who don’t recall who Donna Douglas is, she is Elly May Clampett from the 1960s TV series The Beverly Hillbillies. I appreciate these cultural references mixed in with the SEO analysis; it makes things much more fun.

Nice SEO point about the continuing need to create fresh and interesting content in query spaces. I’ve heard the phrase that content is king, but I like knowing that creativity is king instead.

By the way, is Web 3.0 going to be full of creative production-like multi-media websites? If so, this supports the creativity is king theory. NPR is publishing some sites that look as good as some of the Hollywood movie promo sites, but they’re educational and less gimicky.

A link that passes value today may stop passing value at any time in the future for any of the following reasons (among other possible reasons):

1.The linking page is taken offline
2.The destination page is taken offline (this includes changing, moving page URLs)
3.The linking page is penalized or filtered
4.The destination page is penalized or filtered
5.The linking page changes the format of its link

Even when treated as endorsements, links tend to have finite contexts.
A Web document’s link profile therefore can be used as a metric to gauge shifting trends over time. If a document’s link profile grows, we know that the document participates in young but maturing queries. If a document’s link profile remains stable, we know that the document’s queries has achieved full maturity. If a document’s link profile shrinks we know that the document’s queries are either dimming or have lost all activity.

The correlation between queries and links is very strong. The more people who search for a specific term, the more people who will provide links to content for that term. The fewer people who search for a specific term, the fewer new links that appear for that term.
