    Did I sepcifically say Ken Lay?

    This morning’s USA Today focuses on Harvard Business School, the bad bahavior of some of its alums, and on its ethics courses that are now offerred as a result of the many huge corporate scandals of the past several years. It points to such naughty alums as Enron’s Jeff Skilling and former Cendant Vice Chairman E. Kirk Shelton who was found guilty last year of cooking the books. Harvard serves as the article’s poster child for bad MBA behavior, although clearly other schools also have their share of grads who may have benefitted from ethics classes, which have been offerred at Harvard since the 80’s but only became mandatory a few years ago.

    Again, a degree from Harvard, or any other school for that matter, isn't a guarantee of intelligence and integrity.

    PBO probably got a social promotion, anyway.

    Not all. Only a Libbos would ask such a silly question.

    And you guys wonder why the rest of the country has turned it's back on you? You just keep wondering. It's keeps you out of trouble.

    As a conservative registered Republican I have prior said Palin is not qualified/ready for high office. But I am steadily coming to see her as no less viable than any other contemporary politicians;
    Chuck Todd's interview with Obama - First Read - msnbc.com
    OBAMA: I don't think it will be offensive at all when he's convicted and when the death penalty is applied to him.

    TODD: But having that kind of confidence of a conviction - I mean one of the purposes of doing - going to the Justice Department and not military court is to show of the the world our fairness in our court system.

    OBAMA: Well --

    TODD: But you also just said that he was going to be convicted and given the death penalty.

    OBAMA: Look - what I said was people will not be offended if that's the outcome.
    For all his supposed brilliance, the President is as flawed as the rest. And he has nothing but a slew of bad policies for the nation. At least Palin promotes values and policy I side with.

    Look at Biden's recent guest spot on Stewart's show. Every Republican who speaks as well is labeled a moron. Bush 43, nothing more need be said for his many slips in both word and policy. Clinton was too immature to behave like a President. Ted Kennedy was made to look like a utter fool in several interviews.

    Palin can't do any worse than anyone else seriously seeking the Presidency.

    Why are you talking about Obama in a thread about Sarah Palin?

    I believe I did have some words about Palin. But I used the President as an example to make my point. As I said, despite his education and presence, Obama has nothing on his predecessors and peers. The quote I attached shows some really dumb comments in its contradiction. And today before Congress, AG Holder was flat stumped.

    Palin would probably be alright.

    Yeah, okay. The thread is about how the facts in her book are being reported to be fiction. So maybe you want to address that?

    He quit the Illinois state senate to become a U.S. Senator in 2005.

    He quit the U.S. Senate to become President in 2009.
