  • Are they really sure she graduated or even went to law school? If she lied about medical school, could she have lied about law school?

    Beauty is not the standard of whether someone is telling the truth. It just means you look better than another person.

  • How on earth do people get away with this? I don’t know what’s more unbelievable; lying about a degree or the fact that no one caught her sooner.

    Also Maggie, just letting you know in case you missed it, Maggies Notebook was just on Fox’s The Five! I’m not sure why, but a picture of Sarah Palin credited to you was on the screen for a few seconds. I wish I could have caught what they were talking about, but I guess that’s the price of doing Chemistry homework while watching the news.
