Wow - the amount of John Kerry posts has gotten out of hand. I understand why though - we all do.

As it was said last night, Bush (and therefore Wizbang) is too stupid to know when someone is calling them stupid.

"John Kerry is awful, and anything we can do further to degrade his political prospects is worth doing. But really, I saw a clip of him making the much-deplored remark, and it was obvious that the dimwit in Iraq that he referred to was George W. Bush, not the American soldier. It was a dumb joke badly delivered, but his meaning was plain. My pleasure in watching JK squirm is just as great as any other conservative's, but something is owed to honesty. There's a lot of fake outrage going round here,"

Over the last two days:
-Pentagon Report, progressing towards chaos in Iraq
-Rummy asks for $1-Billion more for training Iraqi death squads
-Air Force asks for $50-Billion more to fly dead soldiers home
-Nuri Kamal al-Maliki is taking orders from al Sadr
-103 soldiers dead in Oct

And all you can talk about is Kerry? That is why the Republicans will loose this election.

jp2 - My view is that the Republican echo-chamber is doing the Democrats a service by dragging this out.

For one thing, it's gotten Kerry off the streets for a while (and that's a good thing). Secondly, it's shows a great deal of desperation on their part - this is the party that 24 hours ago was saying Democrats won't engage on the issues, and here they are acting like children.

And what has Bush apologized for lately? Cheney? John Kerry was born with a silver foot in his capacious mouth, yes -- but he's a man. He went to Vietnam (which you don't like to hear, do you?), and now he's apologizing for something he said.

Clearly, Democrats are superior in very way.

My ass. Which is another story.

I hate to even acknowledge some of the idiotic comments here. I can only refer you to the number of Dems (including Clinton and Ford in Tennessee) running like crazy away from poor, misunderstood Kerry. So much for this being a Republican plot. If so, why are so many Demo leaders cooperating? As Tony Snow said, it would have all been over if only Kerry had apologized. His arrogance alone has caused and continues to cause the uproar that is obviously hurting the Demo candidates. People can accept an apology. They can't take arrogance and stupidity.

Hilarious. My turn now:
Bush was going to veto the joke before he was for it.

I know, it may take some context. Like knowing Kerry was for one type of funding for the Iraq War (the kind Bush threatened to veto), before he was against a different type of funding for the Iraq War (the kind Bush was for).

Steve Crickmore:

13 of the last 14 threads unbelievably have been about John Kerry and his ten second sound bite ( I still haven't seen the prelogue or the prologue) so don't blame moonbats if they have little else to comment on. It is not as if Kerry won the last election and his woe begotten words have influence on Bush administration policy. The only thing that's worse than being a sore loser, is being a sore winner..that is till next Tuesday.

Steve Crickmore:

Thanks sheik for correcting me. I have always had blindspot for the prefex pro meaning pre in this case...I would still like to see a fuller video of Kerry's remarks... where he was coming from and where was going. I rarely look at Dkos. There alot more interesting sites for me than that one. Bush is much more public target than Kerry, so I suppose it is only fair that Kerry in brief return to the national limelight gets criticised for a 'Bushism'. If Bush had said it, he would have been vilified. But if Kerry didn't mean it, it is only a stupid slip of the tongue story, like most of the Bush gaffes. Worse was what Kerry said on November 15, 1988, at a businessmen's breakfast in East Lynn, Massachusetts, when he made a joke about president-elect George H.W. Bush and his running mate, saying "if Bush is shot, the Secret Service has orders to shoot Dan Quayle...He intended that.

US Iraqi security force goal was 325,000. They reached that goal, but now Gen. Casey wants 100,000 more and Rummy will ask for an additional 1-Billion for training. Are you telling me that Iraq does not have one goddamn soldier that can stand up, so one of ours can stand down?

Meanwhile, over 14,000 small arms are missing, and the civil war keeps getting worst.

Sounds like "stuck" to me.

Please link to the transcript of his apology. All I've heard is the same old JFnK horseshit where he blabbers on in that "I can do no wrong" condescension of his.

"Of course, I'm sorry about... (Below threshold)

"Of course, I'm sorry about a botched joke."

You call that an apology?


What he should be "sorry for" (or, to put it correctly, what he should apologize for) is what he said and the effect that what he said, botched or not, had.

He's trying to hide behind this "oops. I slipped. I'm sorry for the ice which made me slip."

He's just a big ol' pussy, and if you buy into his garbage, you're a friggin' sympathizing idiot.

To all you appeasing idiots... (Below threshold)

To all you appeasing idiots on the left--lets see his script--oh there was none--until he shit in his and the democraps nest-then they had to rewrite it so a script is worthless. Admit it-this excuse for a human is nothing more then a traitor to the troops now and when he was in Vietnam (4 frigging months). Not only that he met with the ones he socalled fought against as soon as he returned. Go ahead and make excuses for this piece of shit--it only shows what the democrap party if made of.

Diane:Wow, Asti... (Below threshold)


Wow, Astigafa---If your definition (as well as other Democrat voting people) of a "man" is Kerry, that would well explain the difference between Republicans and Democrats.

Well Diane, let's put it this way. Back in the '60s, we were at war with communism -- actual war, with guns and everything.

The men -- the patriots -- who went to fight that war were manly in a way that those who did not go to fight that war were not. See?

And there's also something about being able to admit a mistake that says something about facing facts, a thing that grown-up males (i.e. "men") will do.

Your boys have done neither of these things; George Bush did not go fight in that real war with real communists who were trying to kill us all, perhaps ultimately with (gulp!) WMD. He couldn't face up to it, Diane, because he wasn't what we call a "man." Bush will continue to deny his very costly mistakes until he finally faces his god -- because he's not a man; he's a facade, a fake, a failure, the worst president in the history of the United States.

I can explain further, should you so desire. You seem to need a lot of help understanding things, and the remedy for ignorance is ever my golden standard, dear.

There has never been a moment since I became aware of John Kerry's existence that I did not actively wish that he did not exist. Kerry is a hack and a bullshitter and (I'm fairly sure) something of a drunk.

However, he did actually go to the actual war with actual people who were actually trying to kill John and you and your mommy and whoever else was standing around back then.
