Requoted for Truth

PZ Myers got e-mail. And for once, it wasn't about cracker smashing:

Dear friends, In these times, with extremely serious, complicated crisises
confronting us both economically and internationally, we need to have
intelligent, educated people as president & vice president:

Educational Background:

Barack Obama: Columbia University - B.A. Political Science with a
Specialization in International Relations.

Harvard - Juris Doctor (J.D.) Magna Cum Laude

Joseph Biden:University of Delaware - B.A. in History and B.A. in Political

Syracuse University College of Law - Juris Doctor (J.D.)


John McCain:United States Naval Academy - Class rank: 894 of 899

Sarah Palin:Hawaii Pacific University - 1 semester

North Idaho College - 2 semesters - general study

University of Idaho - 2 semesters - journalism

Matanuska-Susitna College - 1 semester

University of Idaho - 3 semesters - B.A. in Journalism

Kind of hard to believe that we may be electing a new President who is even LESS educated and intelligent than Bush. Yes, the very Bush whose very name is an embarrassment and a liability to that very candidate, ahd who has similar politics, is probably MORE competent than McCain, before factoring in senility.
And, you want flip-flopping? Sarah Palin apparently flip-flopped all across Idaho before she landed her B.A. in journalism (which, of course, is a major that causes me to raise my eyebrow ever so slightly). Is she trying to hide something by hopping from school to school like that? Trying to avoid showing that she doesn't love America enough to commit herself to one of its fine learning institutions, which are the pride of the entire planet? So, where do your loyalties lie, Ms. Palin? Pick a University, we're at war!
