It's Bush's Fault!
After refusing to apologize for saying in Pasadena what he really believes, John Kerry initially blamed his slur against the U.S. military on President Bush, Tony Snow and Rush Limbaugh. He stopped short of explaining how those three men managed to force him to utter those words. Today, Kerry changed course and said his comments were a "botched" joke about President Bush. Considering that the now-infamous remark contained no mention of nor allusion to Bush, Kerry's clarification made a deep hole much deeper. What a colossal boob. (My eternal gratitude to the over 60 million American voters who, in 2004, denied this simpleton entry to the White House.)
Here's one of several interesting observations military historian Victor Davis Hanson blogged about the latest Kerryism:
How could John Kerry, born into privilege, and then marrying and divorcing and marrying out of and back into greater inherited wealth, lecture anyone at a city college about the ingredients for success in America? If he were to give personal advice about making it, it would have to be to marry rich women. Nothing he has accomplished as a senator or candidate reveals either much natural intelligence or singular education. Today, Democrats must be wondering why they have embraced an overrated empty suit, and ostracized a real talent like Joe Lieberman.
After a day of declaring that he apologizes to no one, Mr. Empty Suit was pressured by his fellow limousine liberals into issuing a non-apology apology:
I sincerely regret that my words were misinterpreted to wrongly imply anything negative about those in uniform, and I personally apologize to any service member, family member or American who was offended. As a combat veteran, I want to make it clear to anyone in uniform and to their loved ones: my poorly stated joke at a rally was not about, and was never intended to refer to any troop...I don't want my verbal slip to be a diversion from the real issues.
Kerry couldn't have been that sincere about "personally" offering this apology because it was issued as a written statement that he, no doubt, didn't write. Besides, it's not an apology. He's merely sorry that some people were stupid enough to have "misinterpreted" his words "to wrongly imply anything negative" about the military. In other words, it's YOUR fault for misinterpreting what Kerry goes on to claim is a "verbal slip." Shame on you!!
In truth John Kerry spoke his mind, small as it is. His comments were no verbal slip; if anything, they were a Freudian slip. After returning from Vietnam, Kerry falsely accused his brothers-in-arms of war crimes. Then in 1972, as the AP reports, Kerry expressed disdain for an all-volunteer military and the skin color of those who may volunteer to serve in it:
In 1972, as he ran for the House, he was less apologetic in his comments about the merits of a volunteer army. He declared in the questionnaire that he opposed the draft but considered a volunteer army "a greater anathema."
"I am convinced a volunteer army would be an army of the poor and the black and the brown," Kerry wrote. "We must not repeat the travesty of the inequities present during Vietnam. I also fear having a professional army that views the perpetuation of war crimes as simply 'doing its job.'
Why am I wasting keystrokes writing about this dick?
