"Kerry then told the students that if they were able to navigate the education system, they could get comfortable jobs - "If you don't, you get stuck in Iraq," he said to a mixture of laughter and gasps."Among other things, this demonstrates either (a) Kerry's political tin ear hasn't gotten any less tone-deaf since his presidential campaign or, (b) he figures none of the troops are going to vote Dem anyway, so they can be ignored or, (c) both (a) and (b).
I think the man is despicable, and that the country is indeed fortunate that he was not elected President. I don't know why he was in CA anyway, because there isn't a snowball's chance in hell that Angelides will beat Schwarzenegger. After this, I'd bet that the only people who vote for Angelides will be the hard left Dem base.
Idiots! Fargin' idiots!
Michelle Malkin has video and lots of emailed reaction.
UPDATE 20061031:1238 PST: I can't believe how politically inept Kerry is! Instead of apologizing to the troops and "clarifying" how he was misunderstood, Kerry went into full attack-Chihuahua mode and blamed everyone but himself. Jeez! Next he'll be telling us how Karl Rove has taken control of his tongue. Why do the voters in Massachusetts keep electing guys like him and Teddy Kannedy (D-Snockered)? Is there something in the water there? Where are the Dixie Chicks equivalents in MA, expressing their shame that they come from the same state?
UPDATE 20061031:1314 PST: Video of Kerry's statement here. The psychologists call this kind of thing, "projection." How appropriate that Kerry lets loose with this on Halloween.
