Meghan McCain: Sarah Palin must be anti-education because she uses common phrases I don't understand

Ace of Spades flags this revealing passage in Meghan McCain's latest column which is — surprise! — another attack on Sarah Palin. Anyway, remember how Sarah Palin called the Bush family “blue bloods” after they tacitly endorsed Romney? Well, here's what Meghan McCain had to say about that:

The reference to “blue bloods” was made after former President George H.W. Bush and his wife Barbara said in an interview that they thought Mitt Romney was essentially the man to watch in 2012, followed by an extra zinger from the notorious straight talking former first lady Barbara Bush who said she thinks “Sarah Palin should stay in Alaska.” Sarah Palin responded on the Laura Ingraham radio show saying “of course they think that, the Bush's are blue bloods.”

I actually had to Google what the meaning of “blue bloods” was, although I could surmise that it was some kind of knock against education and coming from a family of some success.

Meghan McCain, posessor of an Ivy-League degree, had to Google this extremely common phrase? And then she uses this as an excuse to knock Sarah Palin for being against education or something?

Someone please tell me why it is that Meghan McCain is a noteworthy pundit? I think it has something to do with her own blue blood pedigree, because it sure doesn't have anything to do with her general level of self-awareness.
