    Now, let's not draw any hasty conclusions just from the number of colleges one attends in a short period of time. I'm a few years older than Palin, and I have to say that the '80s (i.e. the Reagan years) weren't exactly a hunky-dory time to be a college student for those of us in a certain low-rent economic class.

    Personally, I started off the decade at the university whose basketball team is now coached by the brother-in-law of the President-elect. Then I lost my job and moved to the other major state university where I could live at home. Then I made a couple of stupid choices for classes (don't take Japanese if you're already on academic probation) and decided to regroup at the local community college. Then the entire economy went south and I dropped out for a few years, until I got a short-term scholarship to the college from which I graduated, had to take some summer language classes at yet another state university to graduate on schedule, and wrapped up the decade with a graduate summer institute in NYC.

    I want to get stickers for all those institutions, but I'm afraid my car's rear window is too small.

    Not that I don't think Palin's an uneducated idiot, but she could have done that at one school.
