A message from our stupid troops in Irak.
The RNC ad asking Kerry to apologize.
Bush calling Kerry comment shameful.
Soldiers turn on Kerry, again.
Democrats turn on Kerry.
Scott Ott of Scrappleface salutes Kerry.
Who can John Kerry turn to while being a truculent idiot? Yup, the nutroots.
It seems to me that Kerry is fighting this battle the way he wished he had fought the Swift Boat Vets. The sterling advice from Bob Shrum to ignore the SBVs hurt Kerry badly. However, the best way to handle this is to sheepishly apologize, not angrily half apologize. I was listening to Kerry's positively scalding response to his gaffe yesterday on the Rush Limbaugh Show. Rush cut into it and the whole while was repeating over Kerry's speech, "Say my name." When Kerry did Rush cracked up. Blaming others for his misspoken joke was the worst thing Kerry could have done. To paraphrase, it is not the poorly told joke that got him in trouble, it was his response to criticism of the poorly told joke.
Honestly, you Democrats are making it very hard to fear you.
