Dan McLaughlin at RedState.com notes an interesting parallel in acceptance rates at two of America's best-known institutions.
McDonald's recently received a million job applications during it's one-day application event, while Harvard completed consideration of applicants for its 2015 freshman class. The fast-food chain accepted 62,000 of those applicants, which means, McLaughlin observes:
"That’s a 6.2% acceptance rate. Harvard College’s acceptance rate for the Class of 2015? 6.2%. In Barack Obama’s America, it’s officially now as difficult to get a job flipping hamburgers as it is to get into Harvard."
That's just one of several bracing observations by McLaughlin concerning the must-read piece by The Weekly Standard's Jay Cost on the "Food Stamp Recovery." You can read the rest of McLaughlin's comments here and the Cost piece here.
