OK, let's give Kerry the benefit of the doubt here and assume he was trying to
President Bush instead of the troops. So what's the joke then? Study hard, kids, so one day you will grow up to be...
? What kind of joke is that? Don't parents usually urge kids to study so they don't have to flip burgers, not so they won't become flipping President of the United States and make a decision that über-liberal senators disagree with? Good lord, one would hope that a presidential candidate would show more respect for the office of the presidency than that. I think it's foolhardy to send the message to young people that the president is someone to mock and jeer. As if young people these days could get
disrespectful of adults; Kerry doesn't need to fuel that fire.
Not to mention that the joke doesn't work very well, considering Bush and Kerry got roughly the same grades in college. And Kerry's wife doesn't even know what chili is. Let's not call any kettles black here.
Funny! Love that photo . . .

Sarah - I love your blog. I have never commented but have very similar political beliefs. John Kerry is ridiculous. I dont even know how else to describe his remarks. What an ass. I'll leave it at that. I just saw that he apologized for anyone who thought they were offensive. Whatever...
God Bless our troops.
PS - That picture is PRICELESS.

John Kerry should sit down and shut up. He's like the Mark Foley of the democratic party... except without the homosexual pedophilia thing.
At the same time, I know what it's like being "stuck" at a shitty job, and maybe some people over there do feel stuck right now. So I don't think it's a big deal to say so.

That pictures is awesome!
Interesting note....I had my 17 year old listen to the comments and without any input from me, he assumed Kerry was referring to Bush and his handling of Iraq.
Now, my husband and I dont' align with any party 100%, but my sons response surprises me. How could he hear it that way?
Can a person be born a Democrat? LOL

Maybe the right has reading comprehension problems, I read the text of the speech, and it was damned clear to me he was busting little Georgies chops. I served too, and I too think this president and his staff has FUCKED UP monumentally, "that is just my opinion, I could be wrong". As Dennis Miller used to say back in the days when he was actually funny

Oh man, Bubba. Dennis Miller is still the funniest man on the block.

Small world note!
One of the managers where I work noted that the third soldier from the left is his nephew.
Small, small, small world!
