    Funny you should make that comment.  I heard Claude Pepper, the deceased and former Congressman from Florida talk about his reelection campaign for the United States Senate.  This was during the late 1940s, when the Republican slime machine was just starting to get rolling.  However, his Republican opponent widely dispersed the information that Pepper's sister was a thespian, which was true since she was a professional actress.  The yahoos misconstrued the smear (which was its purpose) and Pepper lost his Senatorial bid by a close margin.  It may sound funny but Republican scum will use it if they can sneak it by.

      when she was in college she matriculated.  

      It's one of the great political legends.
