She knows FOR SURE now that there’s a God, and that He punishes unrepentant sinners (Democrats) who thrice vote him out of their party platform, and who advocate for mothers contracting for the murder of their children.

Microbi was her baccalaureate degree. I suggest that most of the physicians are her equal there.

This is more Leftist academic bias like referring constantly to Dr. Jill Biden while skipping Ph.D and M.D. degrees held by people who don’t follow their creed.

I predict when they hold the special election and the Democrat predictably wins, the news media will excitedly report that it’s a huge repudiation of Trump and his policies.

RIP Rep. Slaughter. May you be greeted by all the faces of every baby you and your party condemned to, ahem, slaughter.

Her Masters was in Public Health. She never did anything with it.

Slaughter. Flake. Hogg.

Sometimes the name says it all.

I wonder if the Dems will push Rochester Mayor [Not so] Lovely Warren to replace her.

She only had a B.S. in biology and an M.P.H. (Master of Public Health) — she was no research scientist, professor, or practicing “microbiologist”.... he Wiki says right after earning her M.P.H. in the ‘50s she went to work for Proctor and Gamble doing MARKET RESEARCH.

So to call her a “microbiologist” seems to be an absurd stretch, but apparently she used the term herself in public, to give herself unwarranted scientific authority.

What? She didn’t counsel BHO on the dangers of encouraging 3rd worlders to invade the US with formerly eradicated (in the US) diseases?

She was 88.

By dying, did she lower or raise the average age of the Democrat Congresscritters?

That’s a wake up for me; everytime I heard it (and that is ALWAYS the way she is referenced in the news) I thought that Dr. Jill Biden was some sort of surgeon. Instead, she’s got a mediocre PHD in education. Between that and her husband, Plugs, plagiarizing equally mediocre speeches, I don’t know what to think other than that the media lies.

Nope. She only has a Doctor of Education (EdD), which is considered academically beneath a PhD.

Yep, an educational leadership degree. This is the sort that was created for administrators to acquire a new title. Mrs. jimfree (that's Dr. mrs. jimfree to you) has a Ph.D. in a branch of history.

Bill Cosby has the same D.Ed. degree, but you rarely hear him referred to in the press as Dr. Cosby.

Ha, that’s funny. Technically, every lawyer in the US has a “Doctor of Laws” degree. Thank God we don’t have to call them “doctors”; even Biden himself would have that title.
