Not sure if this was directed at me or not. If so, I'm by no means dissing her educational accomplishments. My point wasn't that she couldn't have gotten where she was without her family money. It was that given her family background, I'm not overly impressed with those accomplishments. She's managed to get the same level of education as W. Woo hoo.

So you are saying she spent over$100K of her own money defeating a guy who didn't have a chance in hell of winning? That's not exactly an indicator of good decision making skills.

And yeah, compared to Deputy Dawg Walker, she's the fucking Wizard of Oz. Then again, so are some of the corpses in the morgue.
So how effective has calling Walker an idiot been so far? You really think bragging about Burke's brains and calling Walker an unducated lout is going to get him out of office?
