    The risk I took was calculated but man, am I bad at math.

    Joe Biden did the same thing.

    As someone who worked damned long and hard to write a Master's thesis--with everything that was not completely my own thoughts carefully noted and attributed--I will never defend any plagiarist. I don't know this woman, but assuming the report is accurate, it makes me disrespect her personally. Then again, I think it is possible for a person who has done something like this to be useful to a President, particularly in a job that can be done well without great intellectual integrity. After all, Mr. Trump is not asking her to write a Ph.D. thesis.

    When Joe Biden (the left) does it, it's funny good ol' Joe with his goofy mannerisms and outbursts.

    When anyone associated with Donald Trump does anything that can be somewhat conceived as remotely negative, they are Satan incarnate and should be burned at the stake for high treason.

    Well, no, he didn't. Biden allegedly borrowed some of a British politician's speech in another political speech; Crowley allegedly committed academic fraud.

    Biden had also properly sourced the Kinnock speech on prior occasions; he just didn't at the debate and a speech to the NEA. Crowley allegedly committed academic fraud.
    Freedom of speech is not freedom from criticism.

    This is what scares me the most about Trump supporters. You attack the very concept of education. Scientists, teachers and subject matter experts are always in on a conspiracy to push liberal ideals. Anti-intellectualism abounds and feelings are just as valid as facts.

    Further cause for concern, you've gone so far as to delegate all of your thinking to a third party. If you adore someone who lies every time he opens his mouth, it's not surprising you don't care when others lie either.

    Its not the the concept of education that is attacked, it is the concept of what your side, the left, has made out of the concept. Its no longer about learning, true science, critical, independent thought and reasoning... to your side it is all about falling in line, being with the in crowd of feigned "consensus". Science is not based on voting in a politically correct manner, its based on continuous systematic observation, measurement, reasonable conjecture and experiment...this the formulation, testing and modification of hypotheses.

    Sorry, but...

    It is YOUR side that has its validity based on feelings, not ours.

    Just a question, brought up by others also knowledgable about the truth here, are you talking about Joe Biden in that last "every time he opens his mouth" statement? I mean, you do admit she is a she and he is a he, and that genders are fairly settled...well, except to your side and its "science"...

    Ted Kennedy was expelled from Harvard for paying a classmate to take an exam for him. Lots of people do really really stupid things sometimes. I have no clue why they believe they won't get caught.

    I usually like her, but this is damning. I think she needs to remove herself from consideration for the job. Sorry.
