Super Size This

David Adesnik has a fabulous post on the documentary Super Size Me, BoBo morality, and the plight of the lumpenbuergertum.

You should read it in its entirety, but here's a taste:
Brooks identifies the SUV as the ultimate Bobo vehicle because of its pseudo-ruggedness, but I think he'd now agree that the smart set has come to regard SUV's as a guilty pleasure. Someday, it will loath them as it does McDonald's.

"Although Spurlock never explains exactly how this is possible, the implicit message is clear: educated people simply know better."

Educated people know better for a very simple reason: THEY'RE EDUCATED.

What's so hard to understand?

I think you confused educated with wise. Not that same thing dude.
