Wow. Just wow. It's worth recalling that Kerry at one time aspired to command these same men and women from the White House, and claims to still want to lead them. How would these people react to taking orders from a Commander-in-Chief who believes them to be uneducated, lazy losers?

We'll see if Kerry's peers in the Democratic Party support Kerry's description of our fighting men and women. If Democrats that have had John Kerry campaign on their behalf refuse to address Kerry's remarks or openly supports their characterization, it will expose the hypocrisy and the contempt that the Left has for the military. All of the talk of "supporting the troops" will be revealed as lip service.

Will Ned Lamont repudiate Kerry's words? Will Bob Casey, Jr dispute his mentor's characterization of our military as a junkyard for goldbricking idiots? Will Benjamin Cardin affirm that soldiers, sailors, airmen, and Marines don't have what it takes to succeed in life? Here in Minnesota, does Amy Klobuchar agree with Kerry's analysis?

The joke was supposed to be in reference to Bush's bad academic record, and how Bush got stuck in Iraq. That's not how it came out, but that's how he meant it. So Kerry is a bad jokester. Unless there are members of the Republican National Committee on this board, I don't see why we can't be fair about this.

How does Kerry make a joke about "Bush's bad academic record" when Bush had a higher GPA? To be fair, I think it is obvious that Kerry badly misspoke what he intended. But as is so often the case in politics, its not the original gaff that counts, but how you react to it. He chose to blame and attack everyone else for misunderstanding him. The problem is that what he said was perfectly clear for all to hear, it just wasn't what he meant to say. So the story won't go away. He should have come out right away and just admitted that HE f*cked up and misspoke and apologized. Case closed.

What you propose was certainly the explanation provided, and what many talking heads on CNN and CNBC were falling all overthemselves trying to spread around. However, there's really no way to be sure that's what Kerry meant.

Despite his service, he does have a long-standing and well documented distaste for the US Military and servicemen and woman. Its just as likely that his joke was meant as many soldiers and veterans understood it.
