    No but Sarah Palin sure has a grasp on history when asked about her tour of Lexington, Mass.

    "We saw where Paul Revere hung out as a teenager, which was something new to learn. And you know, he who warned the British that they weren't going to be taking away our arms, by ringing those bells and making sure, as he is riding his horse through town, to send those warning shots and bells, that we were going to be secure and we were going to be free."

    My God even a sixth grader knows more than this woman!

    Could they meet the minimum "standers" to be a corpsman?

    My point was that not completing school, or jumping around schools, doesn't inherently mean a person is unintelligent.

    Better factors to gauge Palin would be her professional record. The woman fancies herself a political powerhouse but abandoned her term in office to further her own career. That tells me all I need to know about her political credibility and intelligence. But were that not enough, I've seen her speak enough times to have plenty else to use.

    So, Columbia, and Harvard and president of Harvard review is better than Mat-Su college and Univ of Idaho?


    She is a dip$***, just admit it.

    But I thought were supposed to ignore academic superiority? You know like Obama's over Palin's?

    But if any of us ever run for president I can assure you some of our posts may come back to haunt us.

    In a way I feel sorry for the Internet generation for that reason.

    My problem with Kerry isn't his short three months in-country but what he did after he got back to the world, his actions with the VVAW.

    I think Lt. Col. Oliver North spoke for me and millions of other vets out there when he wrote an open letter to John Kerry.

    >" Dear John,

    As usual, you have it wrong. You don't have a beef with President George Bush about your war record. He's been exceedingly generous about your military service. Your complaint is with the 2.5 million of us who served honorably in a war that ended 29 years ago and which you, not the president, made the centerpiece of this campaign.

    I talk to a lot of vets, John, and this really isn't about your medals or how you got them. Like you, I have a Silver Star and a Bronze Star. I only have two Purple Hearts, though. I turned down the others so that I could stay with the Marines in my rifle platoon. But I think you might agree with me, though I've never heard you say it, that the officers always got more medals than they earned and the youngsters we led never got as many medals as they deserved.

    This really isn't about how early you came home from that war, either, John. There have always been guys in every war who want to go home. There are also lots of guys, like those in my rifle platoon in Vietnam, who did a full 13 months in the field. And there are, thankfully, lots of young Americans today in Iraq and Afghanistan who volunteered to return to war because, as one of them told me in Ramadi a few weeks ago, "the job isn't finished."

    Nor is this about whether you were in Cambodia on Christmas Eve, 1968. Heck John, people get lost going on vacation. If you got lost, just say so. Your campaign has admitted that you now know that you really weren't in Cambodia that night and that Richard Nixon wasn't really president when you thought he was. Now would be a good time to explain to us how you could have all that bogus stuff "seared" into your memory -- especially since you want to have your finger on our nation's nuclear trigger.

    But that's not really the problem, either. The trouble you're having, John, isn't about your medals or coming home early or getting lost -- or even Richard Nixon. The issue is what you did to us when you came home, John.

    When you got home, you co-founded Vietnam Veterans Against the War and wrote "The New Soldier," which denounced those of us who served -- and were still serving -- on the battlefields of a thankless war. Worst of all, John, you then accused me -- and all of us who served in Vietnam -- of committing terrible crimes and atrocities...">

    There's more of the open letter to John Kerry. -> Oliver North: Bring it on, John

    I signed one oath of office for an insignificant board of directors position on a county workforce training board...that was enough government for me.

    Hey I take offense at that. LOL

    I graduated from a community college with honors and transferred to a state university. Guess what? At the CC I had small classes, a prof in each classroom, and individual attention. At the state college I had none of that. The state college's claim to fame in the business school was how many they flunked out. If the grade point average on the quizzes were above a C the AI's were blasted.
