John Kerry’s botched joke

November 1, 2006

John Kerry is Democrat from Massachusetts in the US Senate. I have never voted for John Kerry, but I support him in this recent non-issue.

I know from personal experience that public speaking is difficult, humor is difficult, and that memorizing speeches is difficult.

The controversy began Monday in suburban Los Angeles. Kerry told 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.”

The remark came in the context of an attack on Bush’s “broken” Iraq policy. At a news conference Tuesday, Kerry called it “a botched joke about the president and the president’s people — not about the troops.”

Kerry’s intended point was obvious. President Bush didn’t do his homework before he ordered the invasion. He didn’t study the intricacies of Mideast religion, culture, politics and tribalism. He wasn’t smart about it and we are stuck in Iraq.

Supposedly, the joke was supposed to say “you end up getting us stuck in a war in Iraq.”

UPDATE: November 7: I do not think that the joke was funny, and I think that it was an inappropriate joke for a US Senator to tell about the US President to students at a school.

Arianna on Hillary

October 22, 2006

Would you vote for Hillary Clinton?

I’d love nothing more than to vote for a woman. But this country needs an authentic leader, not someone who watches every word for maximum political advantage. We need to trust our leaders.

Tammy Duckworth

October 16, 2006

In this campaign video, US Senator Bob Kerrey implies that that racist and anti US Constitution President Abraham Lincoln was a hero, and somewhat compares Republicans to rocket-propelled grenade launching people.

Voters don’t like men who look like pretty boys or women who resemble bimbos. “If you’re too good-looking, people won’t take you seriously,” Emanuel said.

He rated all governors and members of Congress on an ugliness scale and found that of the 26 least attractive, 25 were Democrats.

Bill Clinton’s new quotes

October 14, 2006

The Democratic Party has become the liberal and conservative party in America.

He noted that Mexico had become one of the U.S.’s top 10 creditors.

“These people are our bankers,” Clinton said. “Doesn’t it embarrass you that these poor people are trying to sneak over the Rio Grande River to find a living in this country and we want to stop that? But we’re only too happy to turn around and say, ‘Don’t spend your own money on those poor illegal immigrants to give them an education and get a job in Mexico. Loan it to us.’
