Kerry's Foot In Mouth Disease

Well, we've been having quite a time watching and commenting on John Kerry's latest faux pas:

"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,"

Or, if you get D's like the Senator did in his freshman year at Yale, you'll end up with Foot in Mouth Disease. Despite calls to apologize from both parties, Kerry refuses. I guess having a butler means never having to say you're sorry.

Our troops, however, show their good humor and sarcasm to the Senator's remarks:

H/T to Mike's America for the great photo.

UPDATE: Looks like the Massachusetts Senator has issued an apology:

"As a combat veteran, I want to make it clear to anyone in uniform and to their loved ones: my poorly stated joke at a rally was not about, and never intended to refer to any troop," Kerry said in a statement published on his Web site.

Kerry said he regrets that his words "were misinterpreted to wrongly imply anything negative about those in uniform, and I personally apologize to any service member, family member, or American who was offended."
(H/T Fox News)

"Misinterpreted"? It's hard to "misinterpret" the meaning of his statement. Why can't the buffoon just admit he mangled his words and made an ass out of himself while insulting our troops? That elitist Liberal mentality... do we want that in the Senate and House of Representatives?
