    Kerry says gaffe will not stop him from running in 2008 9 minutes ago Senator John Kerry has said a gaffe last month widely seen as a slight against US troops in Iraq would not deter him from considering the 2008 Democratic presidential nomination. Grilled on US television Sunday about his political worth as a presidential hopeful after his verbal blunder, and asked if he had given up hope of a future White House run after losing to President George W. Bush in 2004, Kerry, 62, was adamant. "Not in the least. I'm looking at it in the same way,"...

    Massachusetts Sen. John Kerry insisted on Sunday his "botched joke" about President Bush's Iraq policy would not undermine a possible White House campaign in 2008. "Not in the least," Kerry, the Democratic presidential nominee in said when asked if the furor over his comment had caused him to reconsider a 2008 race. "The parlor game of who's up, who's down, today or tomorrow, if I listened to that stuff, I would never have won the nomination." One of the GOP politicians mentioned in a crowded field for the White House, former House Speaker Newt Gingrich, said he would not make...

    Email to John Kerry | Nov. 3, 2006 | kparham
    I said nothing when John Kerry ran for president, even though I was once stationed with a person who was on the Coast Guard patrol boat that John Kerry was treated, after one of his so-called combat wounds. This person said that he had received worse paper cuts while filing, than the wound that John Kerry had received. The "punchline" of the sea story was that the "person who was treated" had gone on to run for congress and, at the time, was the Lieutenant Governor of Massachusetts.... Below is the email that I sent to John Kerry. I just...

    Kerry's "misunderstood" insult demands parody. "Red Badger" started things off with this zinger: "If you work hard and study hard, you'll do well. If you don't, well, you'll get stuck in a FEMA trailer............" When I read that, I realized that Kerry gave us a setup line for a whole new genre of jokes. The challenge is complete the sentence: "Education...if you make the most of it and you study hard and you do your homework, and you make an effort to be smart, you can do well. If you don't, you get stuck ...." Here was my contribution: "......

    If you needed any help in knowing who to vote for next Tuesday, John Kerry has just provided you with the very reason you should vote against the Democrats: Liberal elitist condescending arrogance. In a speech purportedly about education, this man, and that may be an insult to true men, made the statement that if you didn't keep up with your studies and do your homework and get good grades, you will end up in Iraq. Translation: the grunts on the ground were too dumb or lazy to do their studies and finish high school so they joined the military...

    David Ward said his daughter told him that while the picture was meant to be private, her unit is happy their message is getting across. "When they saw and heard what Kerry said, they were just furious and they were sitting around and one thing led to another," he said. The elder Ward said he completely approves of his daughter's message. Kerry is a preening peacock and the best way to respond to him is with humor," he said. Ward said his daughter was particularly incensed by Kerry's comments because her résumé is nothing like the "stuck" soldier the senator...

    The Republican Party has had a good two days thanks to John Kerry’s insulting remark about the intelligence and drive of our military in Iraq on Monday, and his ham-handed inability to apologize for it right away. Kerry gave the GOP a free day to bash him by refusing to directly apologize until Wednesday, and allowed Republicans to connect his ignorant comment (excuse me, botched joke) with a theme of Democratic weakness on national security, and lack of respect for the military. How much of an impact this will have on close Senate and House races is unknown, but it...

    WASHINGTON - A group of GIs showed they are smart enough to take on condescending Sen. John Kerry - by deploying a hilariously misspelled sign mocking the failed presidential candidate's comments about their education. "Halp us Jon Carry - We R stuck hear n Irak," read the sign, which was apparently the brainchild of a group of service members from the Minnesota National Guard. The picture was first revealed yesterday on the blog Web site of Milwaukee talk radio host Charlie Sykes, who said he got it from a listener who had a buddy in the unit. The picture soon...

Even CNN is reporting Troops respond to 'Jon Carry' with plea for 'halp'; while CBS is reporting "Minnesota Guard Members Mock Kerry In 'Irak' Photo", The AP has put a story on the wire, and the Minneapolis Star-Tribune is also catching up: The photo initially was posted on the website of Milwaukee talk radio...
  • A Macaca Moment: My Two Cents on Slips of the Tongue

    Spare Change | Novemeber 1, 2006 | Dave Aland
    Some weeks ago, Virginia Republican George Allen used a term of dubious etymology (“macaca”) to refer to a member of his opponent’s staff. Although he explained it as a slip of the tongue, it has been used ever since then as apparent evidence of his inherent ethnic insensitivity. In short, it doesn’t matter what he intended to say, it only matters how it came out. If that sounds unfair, it is – but the verbal gaffe has been used by Democrats to demonize Republicans so much lately that it seems deeply ironic that the they should now seek refuge in...

    Democratic Massachusetts Sen. John Kerry uttered a liberal Democrat cliché while addressing an audience at Pasadena (Calif.) City College. What he said is a fundamental tenet of liberal Democrats. Kerry informed the audience, "You know, education, if you make the most of it, if you study hard and you do your homework, and you make an effort to be smart, uh, you, you can do well. If you don't, you get stuck in Iraq. ..." The idea that those in the military are losers - that they are in the military because they are not talented enough, or smart enough,...

John Kerry on Tuesday of troop-bashing, seizing on a comment the Democrat made to California students that those unable to navigate the country's education system "get stuck in Iraq." "Senator Kerry not only owes an apology to those who are serving, but also to the families of those who've given their lives in this," White House press secretary Tony Snow said. "This is an absolute insult." Kerry, a decorated...
