DES MOINES, Iowa A Democratic Congressional candidate from Iowa is canceling a campaign event later this week with Senator John Kerry.
Brucy Braley says Kerry's recent comments about the Iraq war were inappropriate. Braley's decision to distance himself from Kerry came as a furor grew from comments Kerry made about the Iraq War during a campaign stop in California on Monday.

You are really pleased with that one ... huh....:-)
The rats have no shame.
Way to shoot your party in the foot...
Time to crank out the Kerry in '08 bumper stickers.....
Scaramouche is taking on water!! Teresa! Put down the vodka and start bailing!
Now isn't that a special state for a candidate to blow off Kerry....
Kerry must be crying like a baby tonight.
LOL - great stuff.
Quotes from John Kerry, just to refresh our memory:
"And there is no reason, Bob, that young American soldiers need to be going into the homes of Iraqis in the dead of night, terrorizing kids and children, you know, women, breaking sort of the customs of the of the historical customs, religious customs," Kerry said. "Whether you like it or not ... Iraqis should be doing that."
"They told stories at times they had personally raped, cut off ears, cut off heads, taped wires from portable telephones to human genitals and turned up the power, cut off limbs, blown up bodies, randomly shot at civilians, razed villages in fashion reminiscent of Genghis Khan, shot cattle and dogs for fun, poisoned food stocks and generally ravaged the countryside of South Vietnam in addition to the normal ravage of war, and the normal and particular ravaging which is done by the applied bombing power of this country,"
Scraping the slime off of the walk way must be quite a job.
Let Kerry keep yakking, he is actually doing the Republicans a favor by showing his true colors (and that of the Donks as well).
I am confused. Why would there be any furor over Kerry's comments about the Iraq War? The MSM has assured me that the public agrees with the democrats about the Iraq War. They don't support the War in any way shape or form. Thus, why would a crack about our troops in Iraq cause democrats any concern?
Could it be perhaps that the MSM's action line on Iraq has missed the point? The public is not for quiting, but for achieving victory in Iraq. Kerry's comments serve as a stark reminder that the democrats are for quitting, something thatthey have tried to make the public forget. I certainly hope the Republicans drive that point home.
Oh No!!! How are Chris Matthews, Keith Olbermann and Markos going to limit this story to a single day now???
Kerry had just seen his future flash before his eyes...
Guess he saw the writing on the wall, huh?
...And to think there are still some people who think this will just dry up and blow away.
I hardly think so.
Especially since he Kerry refuses to scrape the dog crap from his shoes.
Yay! This story has legs up until at least tomorrow. And if Kerry holds out doesn't give a decent apology until Thursday, this will take over the week in the media.
Thank you Kerry for the November surprise.
Better have the suicide watch out after this mess!
The DemoRATS are jumping off the sinking ship. LOL
You gotta love this, I heard his appearances for the next two days have been cancelled. Maybe he will do us all a favor and Vince Foster himself.
Well, they do historically feed on bilge and excrement.
Open mouth, disengage brain.
Hey John, no one likes you.
Petition calling for Kerry's resignation. PASS IT ON
Enough with this calling for Kerry to apologize crap. The call should be for his RESIGNATION.
It's positively brilliant.
Kerry wasn't content to screw up the Dem's chances in 2004, the attention whore has shafted his party again. The gift that keeps on giving.
He'll never give an apology. You need to know John Kerry. He's never wrong. And if he is, he certainly won't admit it in public! NEVER! This goes on THROUGH election day. Dems will commit suicide trying to throw him under a bus, but the bus will run them all over...
I caught part of the rebroadcast of Mark Levin's radio show tonight on the way home from a play and he was posing a very good question. Why are the Democrat candidates who are former members of the military not jumping to the defense of their fellow soldiers? He particularly called on Jim Webb to condemn what Kerry said. I think George Allen ought to call Webb on it the first chance he gets. Mark thinks that Webb and others have been told to keep quiet.
"Scaramouche, Scaramouche, won't you do the Fandango!"
ROFL!! Oh .. we're having TOO much fun tonight. Praying we don't get paybacks for our glee .. especially from
a stuffed suit
See ya later, Johnny boy!
He stepped in it with both feet and then stuck his foot in his mouth....yuck!
If you want on (or off) this Catholic and Pro-Life ping list, let me know!
Time to VOTE. Rally your FRiends and family, do NOT let them vote FOR babykillers! Not VOTING is just as bad as voting for a Demon-crat baby-killer. VOTE!
When the candidates of his own party cancel on him it's the kiss of death.
Yes, I created it this afternoon. Thanks!
You do not want Kerry to resign or be removed.
He is only one idiot one world socialist lefty.
But in his postion in the public eye, with his big mouth, he has the capability to wreck the careers of maybe a dozen or so of his ilk.
Leave him in office. Give him a microphone and watch the fun.
We need him a lot worse than the dims need him.
No no no.... we need him to be a strong contender for the Dem nomination in '08.
Heh...new tagline, courtesy of Rush Limbaugh...
That's Dem-speak for STFU!
Don't I remember that there is a species of desert snake that eats its young, so the newly hatched have to scramble for cover before mama gobbles them up? Current events made me think of that.
