Kerry’s gaffe may be as much a product of where he lives as liberal loathing of the military. Today’s well-educated and professional military is a heavily Southern institution. In the enlisted ranks 42% of the personnel are from the South while 39% of the Officer Corps’ are Southern. Kerry comes from a region that produces the fewest volunteers — the Northeast (14% in both categories). Considering this fact it’s possible he just doesn’t know anyone who is serving or has family serving in the military.
Thus, to a snob from New England or a MoveOn.org type our troops are just dumb rednecks or poor colored folks. Primarily useful as stage props or campaign gimmicks, but definitely not someone deserving respect. That’s why when I hear someone like Kerry telling me how much they support the troops I tell them, “I don’t want or need your support.”p>By the way, Kerry’s apology was just another slur at those in uniform who were so stupid they were offended by their better’s insult. br> — Michael Tomlinson br> Crownsville, Maryland /p>
According to The Prowler, John Frankenstein Kerry (Imbecile - Massachusetts) has claimed he “mangled” his joke this past week in California, setting off a well-deserved flap. It seems to me that Mr. Kerry (no, I will not use the title of Senator for him because 1. He is not my senator and 2. He is undeserving of that title) needs to stop attempting to tell jokes. If I remember correctly, he tried something similar recently regarding shooting someone at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. As Don Rickles would have said, “Keep your day job, dummy, and leave comedy to the pros.”
Furthermore, I’ve just visited Lurch’s Website to view his apology. In it I read the following: “I sincerely regret that my words were misinterpreted to wrongly imply anything negative about those in uniform…” First of all, there was NO misinterpretation of his words — what was said was said, it’s there in black and white (and audio). Secondly, in other words, he is apologizing to us because we are too stupid to understand the gentle nuance of his “joke.” The great liberal egoist simply can’t understand why we can’t understand, so we must be a lot dumber than he and his fellow travelers are. Thank you, John, I really needed that. Excuse me, what kind of grades did you achieve at Yale? And who got paid off to admit you into Boston College Law School and then allow you to somehow graduate?
What truly scares me is the fact that I have watched and listened to this idiot for far too long a period of time and realized that, there but for the grace of God, this clown could have been President. I can now fully see the guiding Hand of the Lord in what took place in the 2004 elections.p>Somebody up there is looking after us. br> — Jim Bjaloncik br> Stow, Ohio
