    I paid a ton of money to get my degree from GW..i am offended that she just got it for nothing….ultimately celebreties should start refusing these fake doctorates and have the school set up a fund to educated one person to the doctoral level in thier name instead…

    I don’t believe in honorary degrees. NO ONE should be given something they didn’t work for. It’s an insult to those who do earn degrees.

    An honorary degree does not make you a doctor.

    AMERICAN STATE Says:

    Kerry Washington, a name-change African, like Mrs. Michelle Robinson-Obama, endowed with a fake degree in return for her services to the Obama campaign by the communist and heinously antiAmerican Democratic Party. When all this falls down on Obama and Kerry and their controlling pals, as it is continuing to right now, they won’t be able to leave America fast enough to escape the very real lynching they are each going to receive, each and every one, and they each know it fully well every moment of every day and every night.

    You didn’t think this negro was a real Washington or a real Robinson, did you? Of course, you didn’t.
