Just when Republican election prospects couldn’t look any bleaker, the other day John Kerry managed to remind Americans why they voted Republican two years ago. At a political gathering the blueblood senator from Massachusetts again insulted our military men and women, remarking, “Education, if you make the most of it, you study hard, you do your homework and you make an effort to be smart, you can do well. And if you don’t, you get stuck in Iraq.”
Told that he had insulted the (all-volunteer) troops, Kerry refused to apologize. Republican strategists reportedly are furiously trying to get Kerry back out on the campaign trail–for their candidates.
