ARC's 1st Law: As a "progressive" online discussion grows longer, the probability of a nefarious reference to Karl Rove approaches one

John Forbes Kerry: The Intellectual

Which one got better grades at Yale? The goofy (and creepy) looking guy on the Left... (I mean, what kind of smile IS THAT???) or the goofy looking guy on the Right?

.

Woops, not even close. Kerry's recently released grades from Yale show that he earned 5 D's while there. (Bush received one and was a consistent B/C student.) So, I guess that answers this question.

Other items of interest in the story?
One of Kerry's top grades in his Freshman year?
Guess... just GUESS... FRENCH

Kerry's speech during graduation?
against the war in Vietnam which he was about to go fight. He wasn't the disillusioned combat veteran, coming back home to stop the madness. No, he was a disillusioned kid who headed off to Vietnam.

Oh, and one last thing... WHY DIDN'T THE MSM ASK AND PRESSURE JFK FOR THIS INFORMATION DURING THE CAMPAIGN!?!?

It seems that the Conventional Wisdom that Kerry is an intellectual (despite some of the idiotic things he's said and done) has no foundation in reality. Thanks to a B-average senior year, he was able to bring his grades up to just one or two points below Bush's Yale average. Yeah, he's an "intellectual."

Oh, well... Oh, and remember Al Gore, the "intellectual?" Turned out his grades weren't anything to write home about and he flunked out of divinity school for post-graduate... In comparison, Bush completed his MBA from Harvard. Hmmmmm...
