Follow-ups on Kerry here and here.
Oh, and don't miss yesterday's other important read, about some successful PR Campaigns.
Today’s John Kerry news. The man can’t help himself. He has to get body parts moving, one way or the other. Either he gets his foot caught in his mouth, or his hindquarters get a swift kick, or both at the same time. You have to wonder if he works for Karl Rove.
Here’s what he was on the record saying, courtesy of Captain Ed:
“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
Here’s his right this minute rebuttal:
I’m not going to be lectured by a stuffed suit White House mouthpiece standing behind a podium, or doughy Rush Limbaugh, who no doubt today will take a break from belittling Michael J. Fox’s Parkinson’s disease to start lying about me just as they have lied about
Okay, Senator Winter Soldier. I’m an Operation Iraqi Freedom (OIF) III Veteran, enlisted, smart as hell and twice as angry. I’ll lecture your sorry behind.
You are a disgrace. You offend the uniform you wore with such disdain, and you denigrate the service of your betters who have served in the military, without the dishonor you showed, during
We are not “stuck in
You voted for it, before you voted against it. And now this. Even if you believe the idiocy that comes out of your mouth, do you have any idea what a moron you sound like? How much you manage to enrage your fellow veterans?
If you can’t buy a clue, keep your clueless hole shut. If not for our good, for your own.
Mark Finkelstein / NewsBusters.org: Kerry Slurs Military Again: 'People Who Don't Study and Try …
UPDATE: Blackfive checks back up on Senator Winter Soldier, and concludes, yup, he's still an a$$hat.
UPDATE #2: Amazingly, a Washington BBC correspondent picks up and links to my post. Richard Greene is the BBC News website's Washington reporter, and he has this to say about Kerry's insult:
John Kerry clearly thinks he is going to run for president again in 2008. If he doesn’t have jokes funnier than this, he's going to lose again. And in the meantime, he's not doing his party any favours this year.Thanks, Mr. Greene, for highlighting the post, and calling an insult what it surely is.
UPDATE: More links from friends and supporters, such as Antimedia, Blogotional, Article 6 Blog, Two Conservatives, Lakeshore Laments, Flopping Aces. This has been incredible. The BBC link has driven a couple of thousand hits since last evening. I topped out over 1900 yesterday, over 900 already today, almost all from the BBC...Hope they're getting more educated about the US Military on the other side of the pond. Now, if certain Democrats could start listening and learning...
LINK UPDATE: From the BBC link, some lukewarn support from unlikely quarters, such as Slamland, Tailrank
