Incidental Acts of Spontaneous Cerebral Violence

W was to Yale in the 60's as Jalen Rose was to Michigan in the 90's

When I walked into my very first class in Ann Arbor (Comm 103-Intro to Mass Communication) and saw the entire Fab Five, I knew I was home. It's comforting to know that the President is playing on the same level as the inimitable Ray Jackson.

Closely related to this aggressive ignorance is a third feature of Bush's mentality: laziness. Again, this is a lifelong trait. Bush's college grades were mostly Cs (including a 73 in Introduction to the American Political System). At the start of one term, the star of the Yale football team spotted him in the back row during the shopping period for courses. "Hey! George Bush is in this class!" Calvin Hill shouted to his teammates. "This is the one for us!" As governor of Texas, Bush would take a long break in the middle of his short workday for a run followed by a stretch of video golf or computer solitaire.

Dubya is the living epitome of The Peter Principle at work. Read this and be truly aghast that 50.4 million Americans voted for this horse's ass of petulant ineptitude.
