While I'm posting about Bush and world consumption, I thought I'd add an educational history comparison of Sarah Palin with Barack Obama. I know.

  • Matanuska-Susitna College, for one semsester (fall 1985)

Wow, Palin has a LOT more experience because she's been to a lot more schools! That proves that she was a much more well-rounded candidate.
