Carol Mosely Braun: Elect Me, I Have Advanced Degrees From Harvard

It's an annoying credentialist argument in the first place.

But, in the second place, it's also completely untrue, as this Harvard Crimson article notes (but then spins that she has "some connection" to Harvard).

In fact Mosely Braun never attended Harvard as a student in any capacity and holds no degrees from there, advanced or basic. She was a "visiting fellow at Harvardís Institute of Politics in 2007." Which means, um, nothing.

This story came out last week; no one in the MFM noted it. Compare and contrast to Christine O'Donnell's erroneous LinkedIn page.

A page, it was noted at the time, that required users to select from only a small number of pull-down menu options and so could not differentiate between this sort of thing -- visiting as some kind of celebrity "fellow" -- and actual enrollment at the school.

Mosely Braun wasn't so hampered by limited technology when speaking. She claimed she had advanced degrees plural from a school she never attended. And then, later in a show, when a caller specifically praised her Harvard education, she just thanked the man for the compliment.

But no interest from the MFM. Gee, you'd almost think they were employing some kind of double-standard or something.

Thanks to Brother Bewapitis.
