    @Anonymous Moot point in regards to posting this on bwog/spec — everyone got the email anyway. It was the same with Sarkozy; as long as everyone finds out before registration opens, it doesn’t matter who is devoted enough to check the WLF website errday and who just dutifully reads bwog.

    2. the worl where says:

      @the worl where he served in Congress, was vice-president, almost won a disputed election, became the poster child for the environmental movement and the fight against global warming, and won a Nobel Prize for his efforts. What have you done?

      1. CC'14 says:

        @CC'14 Uh, National Merit Semifinalist, Varsity Track, founded Scrabble Club, and will be writing “Freshman Follies” for the Spec, so take that back.

            @You were successfully trolled.


        @JEWISH AMERICAN PRINCESS WHO'S ALWAYS SAD it isn’t THAT hard when your father was a US Senator, you only apply to one college – HARVARD – because that’s all you had to do, and almost flunk out your first two years of college, admit to sucking at math and science, before being snagged on as Vice President because Bill Clinton found it to be strategic that his VP isn’t as smart as he is so he can make all the decisions (unlike the Bush/Cheney thing)

        that’s real talk – whether it sounds good or not, regardless of what party you believe in. truth is truth.
