As much as I hope it will backfire, their target audience is littered with radical anti-Americans. Local students (who are seeing little of such on their campus) need to say enough is enough.
Yeah... President's Bush shouldn't have gotten an education from such disreputable places as Harvard and Yale. Probably should have gone North to, uh.. what was that school's name again?
Time to ship the Molson's across the lake to me. I'll put them to better use and at the same time respect the world leader that is taking on Islamofacism.

Sounds like a real bastion of intellectual enlightment /sarc.
What kind of school has to engage in crass ad hominem childishness to attract students, especially one that mocks a school of far more renowned and a man far more successful than any of their graduates ever have been or ever will?? Who has even heard of this little rinky dink university?
Finally, why would anyone send their kids to a school that has to resort to such low brow tactics to attract students? Don't good schools usually attract students without having to lure them with sophomoric nonsense?

Yeah, right. (Rolling eyes.) Why waste your time at a place like Yale when you can be getting a real education at Lakehead?
Anyone who believes it, deserves it.
Just because you went to an Ivy League college doesn't necessarily mean your smart.

Can't imagine why you post stuff that primarily attracts FR's moronic habitual bashers of ALL Canadians.
Besides, Lakehead's opportunistic stupidity was answered in last Saturday's National Post:
EDITORIAL: The National Post
Saturday, August 26, 2006
It is a tired conceit of the political left that conservatives, simply because they hold different views from their own, are inherently stupid.
Consequently, whenever a Republican occupies the world's most powerful political office -- the U.S. presidency -- the incumbent is generally portrayed as sort of an idiot-in-chief. It was the case both for great Republican presidents like Ronald Reagan and Dwight D. Eisenhower, and lesser ones like Gerald Ford, who opponents said was so stupid he couldn't walk and chew gum at the same time. Predictably, this slander has now attached itself to George W. Bush. That in the course of political discourse the left so often falls back on what amounts to name-calling says a lot more about them and the weakness of their arguments than anything about their ideological opponents. It is pathetic, really, which makes you wonder why an audio book company and now a university in Canada would want to play the same stupid game.
Simply Audiobooks Inc. is currently trying to hawk its wares with the help of an unflattering picture of President Bush beside the words "Don't read enough?" in its smart-alecky billboard campaign. Now Lakehead University in Thunder Bay, Ont., has joined in the attacks, unveiling its own ads featuring a photograph of President Bush, a Yale University graduate, and the words "Yale Shmale: Graduating from an Ivy League university doesn't necessarily mean you're smart."
In unveiling Lakehead's ad campaign yesterday, Dr. Fred Gilbert, the university's president, said, "The Yale Shmale campaign speaks to the unique personality of Lakehead University and our community of students." It is a serious mistake for Lakehead to try to inflate its own appeal by attacking other, far more prestigious institutions. Let's face it, for all its much-vaunted status as "Canada's No.1 Value-Added University" (whatever that means), it would take a "unique personality" indeed, given the opportunity and resources, to choose Lakehead over Yale.
In much the same way as those on the political left who think they can advance their cause by hurling insults, Lakehead University comes off looking, well, stupid.
