Lots of Ph.D's are smart, but apparently the degree itself is no guarantee.

The Heritage Foundation recently produced yet another important sounding report, this one using dubious chains of logic to argue, among other things, how costly immigrants are to the American public. But the report turned into a minor disaster for Heritage when it turned out that one of the report authors wrote his doctoral dissertation on the intellectual deficits of Hispanics. Since "Hispanic" is a government created category, not a biological one, the argument, in the context of doctoral work, is monumentally stupid. Whatever committee approved the line of research and then the dissertation should be closely scrutinized, as should the accredited university that granted old dude his credentials. 

Then we find out that the dissertation came from Harvard. Sigh.

Here's the story of the dissertation of Dr. Jason Richwine. Academia takes a well-deserved hit on this one. We are producing far too many immodest little emperors who lack proper clothing.

The Harvard Dissertation That Became Too Racist For Heritage
