You want undergraduate? Here it is, from the home of the perpetual under-graduation of the human spirit, the UK Guardian, in the form it took before some post-posting censorship.
The pre-text for this are the Bush-Kerry debates.
Quite frankly, [Bush] the man's either wired or mad. If it's the former, he should be flung out of office: tarred, feathered and kicked in the nuts. ... Each time he recalls a statistic (either from memory or the voice in his head), he flashes us a dumb little smile, like a toddler proudly showing off its first bowel movement. Forgive me for employing the language of the playground, but the man's a tool.
