Foot in Mouth
Yep, John Kerry sure did botch this one. With only six more days till the election. Nice work, bro. Still, he obviously didn’t mean to say that members of our armed services are uneducated. That just doesn’t make sense. Kerry was himself a member of our armed services ... and he went to Yale. In context, the lame joke is comprehensible. He was merely pointing out that we need educated citizens to prevent the country from getting mired in a pointless war. Also, it’s worth pointing out that a much more intense form of disrespect for our troops is sending them to fight a war we didn’t need to fight in the first place. But maybe that’s just me. Come on, a little perspective, please.
