What John Kerry Meant to Say:

Updated below...

"I can't overstress the importance of a great education. Do you know where you end up if you don't study, if you aren't smart, if you're intellectually lazy? You end up getting us stuck in a war in Iraq."
- Senator "Scary" Kerry

Uh....yeah, that's it.

(Click the photo, trick-or-treater...and don't forget to scare a liberal today)

11/01/06 UPDATE:
Now this is what humor looks like:

from Michelle Malkin, by way of Flopping Aces

I think John Kerry is a GOP plant. He must be a plant. No one can be that stupid...except maybe a plant.

I'm sure Kerry thought he was being cute, but even if you took this 2nd or 3rd version of what John Kerry meant to say,
“Do you know where you end up if you don’t study, if you aren’t smart, if you’re intellectually lazy? You end up getting us stuck in a war in Iraq. Just ask President Bush.”
at face value, it makes no sense as a "joke". It sounds like he is spinning what he meant. I think he said it, the way he meant to say it, not realizing how it would be taken- as a slam on the military. Of course, he wasn't trying to slam the military. He was trying to encourage students to pursue education by using a "boogieman" in the form of the Iraq War. The problem is, it is revealing not only of his outlook on Iraq as a disaster (as MSM will have you believe), but his perception that our military are made up of victims. His statement is reflective of how he really feels about the military. He sees it as a loser's option, populated by the poor and uneducated. It's the prevailing attitude of many on the Left. We know better.

Senator Kerry shouldn't be worrying about his 2008 Presidential bid. He should be worrying about whether or not he'll be able to keep his Senatorial seat, after this latest in a history of slandering and disrespecting the military.

It almost makes you forget that Kerry went to Vietnam while the current administration was hiding. Almost.

OMG!!! John Forbes Kerry served in Vietnam?! I had no idea!

Don't forget: Kerry also went into Cambodia with his "magic hat".

And then after 4 months service, he came back to throw his medals...I mean ribbons...no, no...I meant someone else's medals over the White House fence.

Frankly, thanks for your service in Vietnam, Kerry, for whatever that was worth. But what have you done since then? He's squandered any capital in credibility he garnered from his 4 months of honorable (some will dispute this, but I won't "go there") service in Vietnam, to the time he joined the anti-war movement, and his 2 decades serving in the Senate, doing what exactly?

As far as "hiding", Bill Clinton was the one in hiding.

As far as those in Congress who have served in the military:

Republicans with military service: 15.6%
Democrats with military service: 9.6%
Independants with military service: 0.2%

When Marie Antoinette said, "Let them eat cake!" she got beheaded. Perhaps if she'd had a sympathetic 24 hour news cycle, an Alan Colmes would have emerged to point out that she was really only referring to Marat's birthday celebration.

Hey Wasp... John Kerry's been AWOL ever since he got managed to write his own purple heart citations for paper cuts.

You proud of that guy?

LOL Wordsmith, Kerry isn't scary anymore... not even on Halloween! The man has absolutely no common sense, and the Democrats have to be livid! To top it off he thinks coming out and saying he wasn't talking about the troops, he was talking about their Commander in Chief makes everything okay. Still unable to shut up, he calls Tony Snow a stuffed-shirt. Every time he opens his mouth he shows his arrogance and what an unlikeable snot and snob he truly is.

By the way, do you have any clue as to what Bill O'Reilly may be smoking? He brought up the Kerry statement on his program tonight, and made the statement that he didn't believe Kerry meant to say what he obviously said, then he brought in two Democrats to give their points of view, but he didn't bring in a Republican. If he's trying to prove he's "fair and balanced" I think he went too far. Usually he has one person from each side.

Mike, I've tried everything to get the load time down. It has to do with the Wordpress platform and the different calls to the various stuff on the sidebar. Thats why I got rid of so many of the different sidebar plugins I had. Gets worse when I get alot of traffic as I am getting right now from Real Clear Politics.

I do have Cache installed also so after u load it once it shouldn't take too long if you have to click back.....

Sorry guys..

Word....I freakin love that frankenstein pic, gotta steal it!

Gayle, Bill was on HH tonight also and said the same thing. He believes he was trying to make a joke....nothing should surprise you with Bill, he is so wishy washy I can't stand to watch him anymore.

Curt, I just now added that photo in; blogger has not been kind today, when it comes to photo-uploading.

And I just now switched the photo (which I can't remember where I got it, as I've had it since before I started blogging) to the one with the comment. Too bad I had to cover up Bush with the captioning.

I dare him to go meet with our military men and women. Not only would they out-smart him, they'd out-class him with ease!

One of my favorite parts of this whole thing is Kerry pretending he was talking about Bush. This is especially rich, since they both attended Yale, and Bush had better grades than Kerry did.

Sheesh! What a loser!

O'Reilly is a contrarian. Since conventional wisdom sees the hypocrisy and contempt in Kerry's remarks about our military, Bill has to put a different spin on it.

Spin free zone indeed.

kerry's (self) service in 'Nam was easy to forget, it was so fleeting. The spin kerry and the dems are trying to put on his remark are almost as insulting as the remark itself. What that was, was the real kerry coming out, pure and simple, just as we saw the real kerry back then when he betrayed our country and our military.

Wow. Republican response on this has been desperate-sounding.

"yes! Please forget how poorly this Iraq Invasion is going or its questionable legal status. Please forget WMDs, bringing democracy, "mission accomplished," and, "we know exactly where they are."

Please forget the dozens of indictments, convictions and investigations involving Republicans going on.

PLEASE talk about this poorly delivered joke from Kerry in which he was promoting education instead. Please?"

No. I don't think we the people will be buying that particular sack of excrement. Thanks just the same.

You're right, Dan. I should absolutely not mind when John Kerry calls my family unlettered yokels with no other prospects than bullet stopping. I mean, the fact that we all have college degrees and advanced academic work doesn't take away from the fact that we are mere peasants to Kerry's Lord of the Manor.

Oh, and please stop it with the WMD talking points. My husband served in the ISG in Iraq. He was awarded a Bronze Star for his service there. There's nothing you can say that I don't know already, and I know it without your spin.

If you don't like the change in focus of the election, blame John Kerry for causing it instead of trotting out the "Meany Republicans" line. I'm not a fan of Don Imus at all; drunk, stinky, sloppy men don't do it for me. But he had a point.

Republican response sounding desperate? I think it sounds more gleeful...

It's the Dems who are also demanding an apology from Kerry that sound desperate... cancelling appearances with Dem candidates... scolding Kerry... btw, where's Nancy Pelosi???

Dan, I updated my post at the bottom. What's to talk about? Double standard, much?

Macaca, anyone?

Kerry has a history of putting his foot in his mouth; then being too dense to see himself for what he really is. A douchebag. If he wasn't so dense, he might have figured out, before he said it, how it would be received. And no, I don't buy into his 2 or 3 different versions of what he meant to say. He's just trying to exercise damage control...and because he can't help but be who he is, he just ends up digging himself into a deeper hole.

LOL :-)Dumbass is right!! I just can't believe even Kerry has botched this so bad. There is absolutely no way to spin what he said. Everybody has the video and the exact quote. It wasn't a joke and it wasn't about Bush. It is the dumbest and most pathetic attempt to spin something that I've ever seen. He has made 5 or 6 statements now and still hasn't owned up to what he said. Tony Snow said it best, we are throwing you a lifeline here, just apologize that you said something stupid. Kerry saying that his words were misinterpreted is just the height of arrogance.

I agree with Mike.

Also, thank you Curt. I lost a lot of respect for Bill O'Reilly for doing that. I don't mind him when he's fair, but he only showed one side last night, and that's decidedy not "fair and balanced."

LOL. Kerry is calling himself an un-educated hack then since he joined the military and went to Vietnam.

Now I'm not saying there aren't stupid people in the military, because there is. And there's immature people in it as well. However ... we have some of the best people in America currently serving our country. And just because you graduate High School and choose not to continue your education in a school setting doesn't mean you're any less smart than those who go to Yale and Harvard.

Kerry is just stupid. Ha ha ha, no one is laughing at your stupid jokes.

This shouldn't come as a surprise any way, this was said by the same man who said we go into Iraqi homes and terrorize women and children. And he said the same thing (almost) about his fellow service members in Vietnam. Then he claimed that there were no POWs.

Has anyone heard from pelosi or reid or any of the top dems lately? It's pretty bad when, in order to not botch an election, you have to muzzle your top people for fear their real persona will appear. Too bad they didn't get a muzzle to kerry in time.

I wouldnt count on Kerry making any visit's to the Troops any time soon. (If he ever has)

Like your other commentor above, where is Pelosi and Reid and the rest of the Far Left?

I can undertsand why they locked Kerry away, but what have they done with the other usual suspects?
