Fidel Castro Falls For The Lovenstein Internet Hoax

Ok, not Fidel Castro exactly. (Who knows if he actually reads the bilgewater the Communist Party of Cuba actually puts out?). But I find this from the "Official Organ of the Central Committee of the Communist Party of Cuba":

Bush Intellect Lowest among US Presidents

George W. Bush has the lowest IQ of the 12 US presidents over the past 60 years, states a report published by the Lovenstein Institute of Scranton, Pennsylvania.

To come up with their ranking the think tank used two basic criteria: Writings that the presidents produced without aid of staff and their ability to speak with clarity.

Bill Clinton scored highest on the intelligence rating with 182 points followed by James Carter with 175. Bush finished last with 91 points.

The Lovenstein Institute explained that Bush’s low score was due to his difficulty in expressing himself, his limited vocabulary (6,500 works compared to 11,000 of other presidents) and his lack of scholarly achievements other than a basic MBA.

Following Clinton and Carter in the intelligence ranking were: John Kennedy (174 points), Ricard Nixon (155), Franklin Roosevelt (147), Harry Truman (132), Lyndon Johnson (126), Dwight Eisenhower (122), Gerald Ford (121), Ronald Reagan (105), and George Bush Sr. (98).

I went to "", and could not find the article. It's either buried somewhere in the site (I didnt exactly do an exhaustive search), or it has been deleted.
