That said, I happen to totally agree with his maligned and misunderstood and clumsily made point.
Dig it, brothers and sisters! The people who get sent to Iraq ARE for the most part uneducated. Or at least undereducated. No one's saying they're stupid, and Kerry didn't say that. He just said they had less education than their contemps lucky enough to not be drafted ('cause there IS no draft, otherwise you'd be seeing student protest on a level to rival 1968) and to not be in Eye-rack.
You don't see so many Ivy League kiddies or Rhodes Scholars or dean's listers from just about any college there is over there, do you? No. You do not. Because they don't have to go, and they don't. That was all he meant, however infelicitously expressed to the glee of our enemies (and by "enemies" I mean Republicans).
But leave it to Chimpy McFlightsuit the Lipless Wonder and his bitter slot-mouthed wife (she trashed Michael J. Fox! She said his TV ad, so brave and painful to watch, was "manipulative". Well, bitch, I guess you would know alllll about that) to put slant (it's not even spin anymore) all over it.
I tell you, they make me want to throw up, with successive tsunami-level heaves of pure nausea, both physical and spiritual. I can't even look at them in the papers or on TV: Chimpy is a lying, shucking, jiving, grinning overprivileged zomboid with the emptiest eyes (and brain!) this side of the Gobi Desert, and Mrs. Chimp is an enabling harpy whose smile could freeze the Gulf Stream. Keep your children away from them, people!
And for the love of gods and country, VOTE THEIR FLYING DEVIL MONKEYS OUT OF OFFICE NEXT WEEK AND SPIT AND TRAMPLE THEIR "POLICY" INTO THE MUCK WHENCE IT SPRANG!!!!
And once again, the Galahad of the media:
