#1 Bull. Most Ivy League alumni are children of Ivy League alumni. And the few co-opted from outside that group, advanced due to factors other than intelligence (fauxahontas, anyone?). For that matter, academic prowess =/= intelligence (unless you define intelligence as good memory + sucking up ability).

#2 this regime has done more to expose the Ivy-League Elite™ as incompetent ivory tower liberal losers than even Clinton's.
How's that economy going again? "The private sector is doing fine"

#3 I do think there is an elitist cabal at the Ivy League universities. The remainder of the article, for the most part. is BS.

#4 Off topic, but on the same Telegraph page: a short article about a UK Labour Peer, a nasty piece of work named Lord Foulkes. Back in 1993 he had one drop too many at a get-together with the Scotch Whisky Association. 'Is Lordship wound up staggering down the street, eventually attempting to dance with a passing 70 y/o lady, the end effect being both of them falling onto the pavement. The article refers to the noble Peer as having "suffered a nasty fall on the slopes of Glenfiddich."
