Laugher Of The Week: College Dropouts Glenn Beck and Rush Limbaugh Claim Sonia Sotomayor is "Unqualified and a racist."
Sotomayor graduated with an A.B., summa cum laude (meaning in the top 1% of the class), from Princeton in 1976, and received her J.D. from Yale Law School in 1979, where she was an editor at the Yale Law Journal. (Law Review generally means that the student was in the top of the class.)
Glenn Beck graduated from High School. He took a single class at Yale University under special program that admitted non-traditional students (affirmative action anyone?) and dropped out.
Rush Limbaugh graduated from Cape Central High School, in 1969. His father and mother wanted him to attend college, so he enrolled at Southeast Missouri State University. He dropped out after two semesters and one summer; according to his mother, "he flunked everything", even a modern ballroom dancing class.
Only in America could these two uneducated morons be given a platform to criticize the intellectual ability of Sonia Sotomayor.
