Most colleges don't accept scores that low unless there are other areas of the application that stand out. I know she was athletic in high school, so I am sure that gave her direct access to college. You know America is something when someone who scores and 864 can be vice president 25 years later.
Again, they are fake

Sorry to go off-topic, but what's the deal with nurses being lumped in with Joe Six Pack? What kind of education do you think nurses have? Do you think nurses are ignorant?

That can be said about anyone. My disagreement was with this:

A nurse can be the best and the brightest. Do you think the president (who we were not talking about, BTW) should have to have a PhD?

841?!?! I scored almost that high on Math and Verbal individually

Can we really afford to have a mildly functional [MOD CUT/offensive] person in the white house????

Wow, my (then) 17 y/o son scored a 1910, first time around. No tutors and he forgot his calculator. Maybe McLame should have chosen my now 19 y/o economics major instead.

What makes you think that Joe Six Pack, who knows how to mix cement and spread it onto a brick, is also intelligent enough to make foreign policy decisions which can potentially result in an international crisis, or domestic policy decisions which can potentially collapse our entire economy?

Would you also want Joe Six Pack to perform Open Heart Surgery on you?

Sarah's a good person (on paper). She's ideally for small government and what this country needs.

However, she is certainly dumb as a box of rocks and thus more susceptible to brainwashing by ingesting the Rovian flavored RINO kool-aid she's been fed for the past month or so.
