Stupid or clever?

by Mikhail Simkin

All sophisticated people know that George W. Bush is stupid. In contrast, John F. Kerry is clever. Can you tell the difference between their college grades? Take this quiz to find out.

Both men attended Yale. Kerry graduated two years earlier than Bush. Under Yale's grading system in effect at the time, grades between 90 and 100 equaled an A, 80-89 a B, 70-79 a C, 60 to 69 a D, and anything below that was a failing grade.

In addition to his four D's in his freshman year, he received one D in his sophomore year.
