    and far more valedictorians get turned down at princeton than accepted.

    here is some interesting stuff

    Articles: Early Obama Letter Confirms Inability to Write

    from an article from the LA Times

    At every step of her career, race has been central to her own identification and upward mobility. Judging from the quality of thinking and writing exhibited in her Princeton thesis, Michelle would not likely have been admitted to Princeton (and later Harvard Law) had she been white. And of course affirmative action opened up jobs, first in a prestigious law firm and later as the vice president of community affairs at the University of Chicago medical center-earning $300,000 a year. She made it her first task at the hospital to steer more contracts to minority contractors. “She revised the contracting system, sending so much business to firms owned by women and other minorities that the hospital won awards,” the Times says.

    she was a disaster at Sidley Austin btw
    It's amazing that you know the grades and honors of all the students you went to college with. Of course Harvard Law takes a lot of things into consideration -- not just grades. They don't even give grades anymore. Not saying that affirmative action didn't help, but we all know that affirmative action also works for rich white people.

    And an American Stinker cite -- beautiful! You and Conservative are thinking alike today.

    Of course the quote that you attribute to the LA Times is not from the LA Times -- that would be what we call a lie. The quote actually comes from another right wing blog site. The author is a former Reagan official and Labor Secretary under Shrub. Re: Remaking Michelle Commentary Magazine

    So a big wow for one of the most dishonest posts I've read in some time!

    You're calling the poster a "liar" because of an error in the citation?? Still haven't learned your lesson yet? Is it necessary to bring it to your attention again, as well as that of other posters, so they can judge just what sort of person you are?

    You think he just mistakenly copied and pasted the quote from a right wing blog and attributed it to the LA times without providing a link?

    BTW, if you intend to "bring attention" you should probably use complete sentences to avoid confusion.

    Yes, i believe that's what happened and I would certainly give anyone the benefit of any doubt before I called them a liar.

    In fact it is you who are the liar, and we both know it.

    You say I'm a liar? Did you want to ... you know ... post an example? Benefit of the doubt and all that?

    Re: Ann Romney Never Worked a Day In Her Life.

    This is really a non-issue as I don't think anyone expected to hear Ann Romney tell us she worked at Sears in linens for 20 years.
    If she did then everyone would think that Mitt was a jerk making her work while he had millions.

    What is more accurate is that she is probably out of touch with most Americans just as he was with his response to why none of his 5 sons had ever served in the military.

    I also think it's kind of weird to buy somebody presents and gifts with their own money they earn, and I saw a woman's husband say it on the Real Housewives of OC once. I think he made her feel awful, but she stayed quiet cause that's her life line.
    Real Housewives?

    Sure, no problem.

    Here is your lie.

    Wow, you even lie about stupid **** like this?

    There are two Whole Foods stores in Indiana. Whole Foods Market | WholeFoodsMarket.com

    Can we see your statistics on arugula consumption by Indianans?
    You lied that the poster was discussing Indiana when in fact it was Iowa.

    Ooo, now that is an epic fail. It is in fact TRUE that there are two Whole Foods in Indiana.

    Sadly I confused the abbreviation of Indiana with that of Iowa, which is what ICMA was talking about.

    So it seems safe to assume that the attacks on the family of the candidate will continue.

    Shall we now start on the daughters of Barrack and Michelle Obama, or do the Republicans have too much class for this sort of thing?
