Being a home mechanic is a technical skill, politics isn't. You can buy an old car and teach yourself how to repair it, you can't buy a politician and learn politi-- nevermind.(this is separate from my main point so I'll make it a different post)
This kind of attitude is a big pet peeve of mine, I have a degree in business administration, yet I have been working in IT for the past 14 years, with more than a few people with no formal college degree at all.
Also despite 0 formal education in being a mechanic the only things I haven't (and wouldn't be comfortable with) done on cars is tranny rebuilds, major wiring and body work (well I've prepped cars before but never actually did painting/bondo).
Formal education is irrelevant, these days you can learn anything and everything without ever stepping a foot into a traditional classroom (including legitimate courses from MIT) and not have any piece of paper to show for it.
