Who's Dumber

Huh, the news that John Kerry wasn't a very good student seems to have provoked a bit of a debate about who was dumber: Bush or Kerry. I say both! No, wait… But if I had to choose, this quote from the Boston Globe piece strikes me as particularly damning: "Bush went to Yale from 1964 to 1968... He received one D in his four years, a 69 in astronomy." Astronomy? No, I kid. I seem to remember sleeping straight through my college astronomy class, and might well have failed were it not for a bit of creative number-fudging on my observations of the moons of Jupiter and a kick-ass term paper on dark matter, complete with diagrams drawn in black crayon. Ah, grade inflation...
