Is Rachel Smarter Than Keith??

Postby Karen'sKeithie » Sat Dec 06, 2008 2:31 am

:roll:

Entertainment Weekly seems to think so. They named the smartest people in television and Rachel made the list; Keith was no where in sight.

Idiots. [-X

Keith was smart enough to notice Rachel's TV potential and push for her to have her own show in primetime. Does that count?

Also, he graduated from HS -- and consequently from Cornell -- two years early, at age 20, then got hired straight out of college by the country's premier wire service (UPI, prior to its decline and eventual purchase by the Moonies).

Rachel is smarter than everybody.

What Michael said about being knowledgeable in different areas -- maybe that's why they don't feel they need to compete with each other. If we're talking raw IQ, tho, I'd say they're about the same level. What they've done with it is way different, but isn't it cool that they look up to each other like they do? It's definitely a mutual admiration society!

Well, I would say Entertainment Weekly wasn't making the comparison, they were just listing Rachel and not Keith and I took umbrage with that. I do think that Keith has a wider world view than Rachel, just by virtue of his age and experience.
I dunno, I guess it's just a matter of taste and opinion.

I would say that Keith and Rachel are both intelligent. I honesly don't know if one of them is smarter than the other. :grin: To me, they are equal with each other.
