Wow, John Kerry is on a rampage these days. He recently told a bunch of California students, “You know, 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. If you don’t, you get stuck in Iraq.” So White House talking asshole Tony Snow (along with every other GOP robot) instantly read from the same Talking Points memo, saying that owes the soldiers an apology, as well as their families, their pets, their neighbors two doors down, and whoever else they could come up with. Nowhere did they challenge his remarks…they just demanded an apology to the soldiers. No surprise there.
But that’s not the best part. Kerry then issued a response which included this wonderful zinger: “This is the classic GOP playbook. I’m sick and tired of these despicable Republican attacks that always seem to come from those who never can be found to serve in war, but love to attack those who did. I’m not going to be lectured by a stuffed suit White House mouthpiece standing behind a podium.” Meee-YOW! Of course the AP’s headline (“White House spokesman slams Kerry remark”) makes it sound as if the wrist-slapping comments from the White House talking asshole were really hard-hitting. I think the headline should have been something more along the lines of “John Kerry tears White House spokesman a new poop-chute.”
