When you're winning, be sure to make a fool of yourself.
Then [John Kerry] said: "You know, education, if you make the most of it, you study hard, you do your homework and you make an effort to be smart, you can do well. If you don't, you get stuck in Iraq."The uproarish response is that Kerry seems to be saying people who go into the military are teh st00pid. I'm guessing he was trying to make a jab at Bush, but it doesn't help to have worse grades than him when making this one. The response is the defensive "OMG RIGHTWINGERS!!!" type, rather than the "whoops, I misspoke" type.
By the way, the Chron article should probably have put this passage:
"This is the classic GOP playbook," Kerry said in a harshly worded statement. "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."and this one:
A potential rival to Kerry in 2008 — Republican Sen. John McCain — said in a statement that Kerry "owes an apology to the many thousands of Americans serving in Iraq, who answered their country's call because they are patriots and not because of any deficiencies in their education."much closer to each other, just for the humor value.
Like Kerry, McCain is a decorated Vietnam veteran.
