10. Chomsky, though intelligent, often acts like a major twit.

If I'm not wrong, isn't Chomsky's Ph.D. in linguistics? Is not it rather ironic that he would criticize people for discussing physics without an advanced degree in it, when he constantly discusses politics without an advanced degree in political science? Or does having a post-graduate degree in anything qualify you as an expert in anything?

I'm not a 9-11 truffer or anything, I'm more offended by the rampant display of academic elitism.
