Swabbing decks in the hallowed halls doesn't exactly mean working in higher education. If you don't think quotas exist I now have TWO bridges for you. Are you Ward Churchill?

Once he starts being himself....Unfortunately for him being himself would constitute being the most liberal democrat.

You said, 'grade quotas', I am well aware of the painful debates that occur in our miserable 'academic council' meetings in which we discuss grade inflation and how to combat it ad nauseum, I can assure you, there are no racially based 'grade quotas' that exist in any institution of higher education.

Now there are issues that can get complex when it comes to admissions, but in the classroom itself, every place I've been involved with, your grade is based on your academic ability, and that alone (well, there was that one case were that student and that professor had, uh, a relationship not sanctioned by the school, but that resulted in a loss of a job )

Yes he must weigh each word to make sure he doesnt say the wrong thing, instead of just saying what he really means and thinks! I think that is all part of the whole hope and change gig!

You're right. Luckily, Obama doesn't have a coke addiction. BTW, how much time did Cindy do for her drug addiction and stealing again?

Oh, and this ex-JAG paralegal can tell you that adultery in the military is very much illegal. Mr. Navy man should know that.

He's talking about how blacks can't possibly be intelligent or hard working, and CERTAINLY not better than any white man. Anything we get in this country is because white people were benevolent enough to give it to us. You know, like freedom or the right to vote.

Who is the dumb ass?

How are you going to spin this? He got 5th place?


No spin needed
Obama is a dumb ass because he prissed in thinking he would nail this deal, much like he often does.
He might have a law degree, but that does not help him answer questions off the cuff.
He always looks like a dumb ass.
What he learned tonight is he has got a fight on his hands and one that he
will likely loose.
It was said tonight on CNN several times that Mccain did far better than anyone dreamed.
