Flashback: McCain Admits He's Dumber Than Bush

Another great video catch by Jed:

When McCain was asked last year at a Candidates@Google event how his GPA compared to President Bush's C average at Yale, McCain offered up some straight talk, my friends:

McCain: My GPA earned me fifth from the bottom of my class at the Naval Academy status. So, the GPA was based --since that was in the Coolidge administration it was a different measurement, but I can assure you in today's standards it would be barely passing.

For good measure, Jed adds to that a clip from a January interview with Politico's Mike Allen where McCain admits that he's "an illiterate" who lacks the ability to utilize decades-old technology. At least Bush knows how to use "the Google."

One note, if the McCain campaign is going to rely so heavily on his military service to make the case that he's more fit to be commander-in-chief, why won't the media actually take a look at his military record, especially considering he freely admits he placed 894th out of 899 in his class? Oh, that's right. Apparently it's a secret.

When John Kerry refused to release all of his military records before the election in 2004, which he subsequently did, the press relentlessly pushed him to do so. So why is McCain getting a complete pass? Are there any real journalists left in the U.S. who aren't part of McCain's base? Apparently not.
