Bloopers, part II

Here is some more inadvertent humour from student papers and exams:

Concerning conservative statesman Edmund Burke: "He wanted to keep up with the status quo."

"In 1798, Madison and Jefferson issued the Virginia and Kentucky Resolutions in response to the Alien and Sedation Acts which aimed at silencing Jeffersonian Republicans." Sure. If you can't keep them quiet any other way, by all means put them to sleep.

The followers of at least one ideology seem to gravitate towards nudism: "Too often, conservatives look to the past with nothing but rose colored glasses on."

Did Canada's foremost philosopher write his famous Lament for a Nation in the local pub? "Grant raises several good pints in his assessment of the Canadian people."
