Kerry's grades revealed in his "long awaited" released records

Kerry and his camp made a big deal out of Bush's intelligence during the '04 Presidential campaign. Come to find out, Kerry did worse than Bush.

It's this kind of hypocrisy that really burns me. You take a candidate... ridicule him, call him names, insinuate that he's stupid... and you are the moron!

According to Kerry's own words...
''I always told my Dad that D stood for distinction," Kerry said yesterday in a written response to questions, noting that he has previously acknowledged that he spent a lot of time learning to fly instead of focusing on his studies.
Well, isn't that special!

Kerry received a cumulative 76 for his four years, according to a transcript that Kerry sent to the Navy when he was applying for officer training school. He received four D's in his freshman year out of 10 courses.

He received a cumulative 76 for all four years and he graduated with a high honor...

It is noteworthy, however, that Kerry received a high honor at Yale despite his mediocre grades: He was chosen to deliver his senior class oration, a testament to his reputation as a public speaker. He delivered a speech questioning the wisdom of the Vietnam War, in which he would soon see combat.

The transcript shows that Kerry's freshman year average was 71. He scored a 61 in geology, a 63 and 68 in two history classes, and a 69 in political science. His highest scores were a 79, in another political science course, and a 77 in French class.

Kerry's got me so mad, that I'm off to create him a little something... stay tuned!
