Still Blaming Others

Realizing that his attempt to blame Republicans for his tasteless comment about the troops has only made matters worse, John Kerry has now decided to apologize if his “botched joke” offended anyone who misinterpreted it. In other words, he is still blaming others for his own gaffe. Remember, this is the guy who was among the first to throw Senate colleague Trent Lott under the bus for ill-advised remarks praising Strom Thurmond. Kerry is the same guy who in 1971 accused soldiers of rape and murder. Now he wants us to believe he simply misquoted himself? As Vice President Cheney said, “He was for the joke before he was against it.”
