Sarah Palin brags of D in Economics Class (macro)
September 19, 2008

During her campaign for Governor of Alaska Sarah Palin bragged about 

getting a D in her economics class. Since we are in the worst economic times

since the combo of WW II and the Great Depression it is nice to see Senator McCain put country first with a D Economics student on board a heart beat away as they say.

I’m an undecided, independent voter and this news is troubling to me. College level Macro Economics is not rocket science and a poor mark in this class would show a general misunderstanding of the overall economy. Not to say she couldn’t have learned since.¬†

Of note, a student who gets a C or below in any Graduate level class will not qualify for a masters degree. So we can be certain that Senator Obama graded B or better at the hardest schools in the country.
