John Kerry's Balls Have Emerged!

A funny thing happened today, John Kerry's balls dropped again. I am not trying to belittle his years of service prior to this by saying he was without a sack - I just wished he showed this much passion going after Bush in 2004.

So the story is Democratic U.S. Sen. John Kerry drew election-year fire from President Bush and other Republicans on Tuesday for saying college students could "get stuck in Iraq" if they do not study hard.

Some people thought that he was disrespecting the troops - I dont think so, he's essentially right. Anyway there was supposed to be more said according to the official speech copy that he left out, which was, "Just ask President Bush." Intending this to be a slam on Bush - now it ends up being a "botched joke".

At any rate the Right Wing Media and the GOP are jumping all over Kerry and trying to tear him a new one. Well this isnt your daddy's John Kerry ... he LET LOOSE on the ones talking smack about him, check it out:

"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 ."

Truly some awesome stuff. I'm glad him and the other Democrats are willing to start nutting up to Bush and the GOP. So congrats, Kerry, on your twins bungie-jumping back down into your Fruit of the Looms.

  1. Essentially right? What point was he trying to make other than the soldiers in iraq are not well educated?

    I watched some stuff on the news about this last night, and the only person that supported him (let's not forget that democrats all over the place are cancelling speaking arrangements and pushed him to apologize, so I don't know what makes you think anyone was behind him in making this statement) cited the fact that the 'joke' (what joke?) was supposed to be 'study hard and stay in school or you may end up getting our country stuck in Iraq'... Sooooo.. If you don't do well in college you may end up as president and get our country stuck in a war? Does that make sense either?

    Anyone that would stand behind this type of comment, in my opionion, stands with a large crowd of left wing democratic sissies that are criticizing everything we are doing in Iraq, and shouting "Pull out the troops!" with no strategy. Complaining about the problem without offering a solution doesn't get us anywhere.

  2. Also, let's not forget that John Kerry was a major supporter of the Iraq Invasion. He once was asked how much we should spend and how long we should stay there and his commend was "as much and as long as it takes"....

    Hmmmm... So funny how we forget that we do not live in an absolute dictatorship, and there are a lot of people responsible for the decisions and directions taken by our country and military.

  3. I think his point was that if you study hard and go into higher education you are less likely to get snatched up by the jobless tumble that so many people find themselves in and then end up in the military for work just to be sent to Iraq.

    I have many plans on how to best secure Iraq and to get our troops back to safety and out of the middle of a civil war - so do a lot of other people. I guess it's easy to claim no one has a plan when you just dont feel like enumerating the various plans and options out there.

    But let's not forget our President has a plan "stay the course", oh wait he says he never said that and they have never been "stay the course". I guess his plan is to just "stay" and hope everything turns around well enough to make himself look good in a history book.
