Return of the Kerry Magic!

I had to steal Dean Barnett's post title over on HughHewitt.com on Kerry's amazingly timed gaffe in a speech Kerry was giving to college students.

Apparently the surrounding context of Kerry's unfortunate sentence "you know education, if you make the most of it, study hard and do your homework, and you make an effort to be smart....you can do well...if you don't you get stuck in Iraq" doesn't make his current claim that this was a botched joke about Bush believable at all....not that it would have been anyway.
Amazing the cajones this guy has to not apologies and just like he did in his failed Presidential run he once again thru out that he served and denounces criticism from those who did not. This is so typical of those on the elitist side of the cultural divide in this country....they think if you served in the military, or have Parkinsons, or had a spouse die in the Twin Towers that you are beyond reproach and your motives cannot be questioned.

Kerry was only an honored military man and patriot prior to the day he made those unfounded claims to a Senate committee in 1971 of atrocities committed by fellow soldiers in Vietnam.

If for no other reason than to see Kerry get castigated by the Dems for loosing their shot at a majority in this election I hope we keep control....too funny!

Update1: Victor Davis Hanson over at NRO has a post with more on Kerryism...like how much a joke it was for Kerry to be lecturing students on doing well in the first place, Hanson wrote: How could John Kerry, born into privilege, and then marrying and divorcing and marrying out of and back into greater inherited wealth, lecture anyone at a city college about the ingredients for success in America? If he were to give personal advice about making it, it would have to be to marry rich women. Nothing he has accomplished as a senator or candidate reveals either much natural intelligence or singular education. Today, Democrats must be wondering why they have embraced an overrated empty suit, and ostracized a real talent like Joe Lieberman.

Update2: Black5, who I read regularly and is probably the most widely read military blog calls Kerry an Asshat! boohahahahahahahaha

Udpate3: Victor Davis Hanson nails the continuing Kerry saga.....here's the entire new post:

A man who remembers everything and learns nothing. One of the things I love about America is the spontaneous brilliance and humor that undermine all pretension. No better example was that wonderful banner from our brave and ingenious soldiers in Iraq, blaring:


20 million Americans must have seen it all over the Internet, and nothing sums up the nothingness of Kerryism better than those smiling soldiers. After seeing that, no wonder he's offering deer-in-the headlights apologies. This is a man who remembers everything and learns nothing.Then there was the finger-in-the wind initial Democratic response: their supposedly slight ill breeze suddenly became a Katrina hurricane, and, Presto!, they were all over the airwaves demanding from poor Kerry the apologies that just a few hours ago they thought were not necessary. As for Kerry — how quick the 24-hour metamorphosis from smugness to defiance to purported contriteness! At his earlier blame-the-wing-nuts-and-Rush-Limbaugh press conference, he thought he was a strutting, strong-jawed Napoleonic general leading his troops to rout the evil Bush-Cheney Prussians, and then, alone, suddenly turned around — and Mein Gott in Himmel!! — his Old Guard was heading for the hills.

I think he was trying to make a crack on Bush, but he's so stupid he said "you get stuck in Iraq", instead of "you get US (or the U.S.) stuck in Iraq.

Of course this comes from a guy who had worse grades than GW all through school and who isn't even smart enough to differeniate who is joke is intended to belittle.

Here's what he had to say later (yes, it gets worse):

“If anyone thinks a veteran would criticize the more than 140,000 heroes serving in Iraq and not the president who got us stuck there, they're crazy. This is the classic G.O.P. playbook. I’m sick and tired of these despicable Republican attacks that always seem to come from those who never can be found to serve in war, but love to attack those who did.

I’m not going to be lectured by a stuffed suit White House mouthpiece standing behind a podium, or doughy Rush Limbaugh, who no doubt today will take a break from belittling Michael J. Fox’s Parkinson’s disease to start lying about me just as they have lied about Iraq. It disgusts me that these Republican hacks, who have never worn the uniform of our country lie and distort so blatantly and carelessly about those who have.

The people who owe our troops an apology are George W. Bush and Dick Cheney who misled America into war and have given us a Katrina foreign policy that has betrayed our ideals, killed and maimed our soldiers, and widened the terrorist threat instead of defeating it. These Republicans are afraid to debate veterans who live and breathe the concerns of our troops, not the empty slogans of an Administration that sent our brave troops to war without body armor.

Bottom line, these Republicans want to debate straw men because they’re afraid to debate real men. And this time it won’t work because we’re going to stay in their face with the truth and deny them even a sliver of light for their distortions. No Democrat will be bullied by an administration that has a cut and run policy in Afghanistan and a stand still and lose strategy in Iraq.”

Another "STUPID" liberal confirming that "THEY JUST DON'T GET IT"!!! Amy Altschul from Oakland, CA had these words of wisdom which were posted on Michelle Malkins blog. This is her comment in regards to Jon Carry's, (whoops, I new I shud of staid in skool and not joind the Air Force) remarks.

"Why should a person apologize for telling the truth? The truth is, for those who are not educated; the military is one of their only outlets. This does not mean the people are stupid, it means they are uneducated. Their lack of education often means the military, which currently means Iraq."

Good God Almighty! Where to begin? Let's just start with all the uneducated attendees of the United States Military Academy at West Point, which has been producing uneducated Army officer's since 1802. The United States Naval Academy at Annapolis, which has been producing uneducated naval officer's since 1845. You get the point.
And how about all those college graduates that enroll in ROTC, graduate and move on to Officer's Candidate School without attending a military academy?

Let's try one more: The highest-ranking Non-Commissioned Officer currently serving as the Command Chief Master Sergeant for the 86th Tactical Fighter Wing at Ramstein Air Base, Germany is CMSGT Renee Starghill. Chief Starghill is so uneducated that she graduated from high school and joined the Air Force. I mean what else was she supposed to do since that was her only outlet. Well stupid is as stupid does. Chief Starghill, who by the way is an African American woman, has an Associate degree in human resource management and personnel administration, A BS in Administration and Management from the University of Maryland, and a Master of Business Administration degree from Webster University. Damn those uneducated, no way out but Iraq, military folk.

For all of you who don't know what an uneducated liberal looks like, go to Michelle Malkins blog and check out Amy Altschul. I can't believe that Amy is not in the military and currently serving in Iraq.

Good points Anonymous!

Even if Kerry was truly trying to make a rip on Bush, it shows his contempt for the military that liberals have using it in the joke....it also shows they think they're smarter than you....from Ed Morrow at the National Review:

Throughout the 2004 presidential race, Bush’s stupidity was one of the principal themes of the Kerry campaign. Bush = Stupid, while Kerry = Genius. Indeed, liberal mental superiority has been the overarching conceit of liberalism; conservatives are troglodytes, glowering out from their dark caves at a world they only dimly understand, while liberals are just one or two mental leaps short of transcending this mortal coil and ascending into one of those glittering, non-corporeal energy beings that are sometimes featured in science fiction productions heavy on pedantry and short on space babes and explosions.

James Baldwin wryly defined a liberal as “someone who thinks he knows more about your experience than you do.” To that, we can add, “and who thinks, because of his superior knowledge, he should be making your decisions for you.” While one might suppose this would be offensive to the ordinary herd, liberals have included a stepladder in their construct, allowing lesser folks to climb up to their level (or at least to a level just under where the decisions are made). If you agree with them, you’re a smartie, too! In fact, if you base your agreement on nothing more than your feelings of superiority, you’re even smarter and more superior, because you know “The Truth” without the mundane bother of having to reason it out. Democrats have been playing to this too-common weakness by promoting the charge that Bush is stupid.

The latest apology says that he's sorry if anyone misinterpreted what he said.

WTF? You said what you said, there it is on record.

Oh wait, I get it, you're sorry that I'm too stupid to know what you MEANT to say.

Got it.
