Mediocrity R Us

Frank wrote:"We live in a debased age, run by credentialed mediocrities."  
Which brings to mind the classic statement by Sen. Hruska, on the nomination of Judge Carswell, widely seen as mediocre at best, to the Supreme Court:   ''Even if he were mediocre,'' the Senator said,''there are a lot of mediocre judges and people and lawyers. They are entitled to a little representation, aren't they, and a little chance? We can't have all Brandeises, Frankfurters and Cardozos.''
