    question of Affirmative Action.  I know that Affirmative Action is used as a pejorative by the GOP.  They prefer the term "legacy" when it works in their favor, and it most often does.

    Romney has a first class education "on paper." And of course he "earned" his way in just like W did.  Obama has been accused of a myriad of evils, but he also has a first class education.

    Last night's debate made it crystal clear who belonged at the big university and who took best advantage of that opportunity and who made the country richer for having it.

    The legacies of the world, the Mitts and the W's didn't earn it, didn't deserve it and shouldn't have occupied a chair of someone who could.

    It's an embarrassment that Romney is so ignorant and so incurious and so poorly prepared. It gets noticed in the foreign press, but not by our librul lapdog press.

    I think that Republicanism is revealing itself as a personality disorder, not so much an ideology." -- Naomi Klein
