Politics and Education In The Same Post

How could I not link to this article, which discusses President Bush's and John Kerry's Yale grades?

And Chimpy McBushitler (did I get all the bashing right, you lefties?) was the dummy and Horseface (or the other end, as it turns out) was the nuanced intellectual? Well, that's not what the transcripts bear out :-)

And ladies, of the two pictures shown, which one would you want to date?

It probably wouldn't hurt to round that out with a reference to his beady eyes and/or his ears, but I'm not sure how you'd fit it in.

Actually, that isn't on the official list:

Let's see your college photo, wiseacre (better yet, high school yearbook photo).

My take on that, even with Bush, is that a 77 cumulative average at Yale, in that era, is still pretty damn impressive. A 'C' at Yale is still, after all, Yale. Give the President credit for his willingness to be self-deprecating about it.

Darren said...

I'm not sure which wiseacre you're referring to, but I'm not afraid of my high school or college yearbook photos. Back when I still had all my hair....

Andrew said...

I think that was meant for me.

And it should be noted, in all fairness and for the record, George Bush *wishes* he had my hair.

I don't think the beef with W is specifically that his grades were insufficient. Moreso, the complaint concerning his intellect is, well, you know, that he's been in office for five years and still can't read off the teleprompter, that he has trouble putting together complete sentences, that he doesn't seem to have changed his ways from back when he was busy running three different companies into the ground, that he takes pride in not being very smart...

Darren said...

And yet he got himself elected President. Twice. How dumb can the man be?
