Kerry Apologizes, Kinda … Calls it a botched Joke … Who’s the joke?


John Kerry thinks he is a comedian, a word of advice … Don’t quit your day job.  News flash to Kerry, there is a big difference between saying a joke and being a joke.


(Vanderbilt – ‘06)

John is laying low while the media tries to explain away his comment. This guy is NOT a Jay Leno. Kerry is an ‘educated man’ prone to speak
ill of our military on more than one
occasion. Many feel that he IS the
joke in question.

John Kerry attempted apology may have been even worse than his comments regarding the military.  I am certainly a defender of the internet as a news source; however, Kerry in a TV Press conference said he would never apologize. Then he apologizes under extreme pressure from the Democratic Party on his web page. How lame is that? He certainly had no problem shooting his mouth off when the cameras were running initially that got him into hot water.

Kerry, even though I doubt this was a joke … keep the humor to trained professionals, like the guys from BE KERRY SMART.



However, Senator Kerry if you think that an apology consists of stating that you “regret that my words were misinterpreted”, you are sorely mistaken. You claim it was a botched joke; however, you may be the botched joke. The fact that Democrats running for office in close races are fleeing from you like rats off a ship may be the first indicator. To be a fly on the wall in Democratic strategists offices who are throwing their hands up in the air saying the same words over and over … “who let this man speak?”

John Kerry is the “botched joke” of American politics. For those of you keeping score at home, John Kerry has now called members of the U.S. military (a) stupid, (b) crazy, (c) murderers, (d) rapists, (e) terrorizers of Iraqi women and children. I wonder what he’ll call them tomorrow. Whatever Karl Rove is paying John Kerry to say stupid things, it’s worth every penny.

Once again John Kerry has put his foot in his mouth and shown just what it means to be a New England Liberal Democrat. Joke? Hardly … is this any different when he uttered the words “global test” during the 2004 Presidential debates? When he said, “he voted for it before he voted against it?” Are the words that Kerry said regarding the military any different from what he said in 1972? Does a leopard change its spots?

In 1972, as he ran for the House, he was less apologetic in his comments about the merits of a volunteer army. He declared in the questionnaire that he opposed the draft but considered a volunteer army “a greater anathema.”

“I am convinced a volunteer army would be an army of the poor and the black and the brown,” Kerry wrote. “We must not repeat the travesty of the inequities present during Vietnam. I also fear having a professional army that views the perpetuation of war crimes as simply ‘doing its job.’ (AP)

 My guess is John Kerry will not be seen until after the 2006 midterms which at that point Democratic leaders will force Kerry into the witness protection program.

      If this is the best the Republicans can work with, they are going to have a hard time not losing a significant percentage of both houses.

      Hanoi John simply mirrows the mind set of the majority of the dim politicians. Everyone in America is stupid and we need them to look out for us.

      I apologized to no one, before I apologized to everyone.

      #2, kerry is a democrat from massachusetts. the same state that keeps sending teddy (chappaquiddick) kennedy to washington. can you imagine what we’d get if they got to send a third senator to washington? wait, maybe mass. does have more than 2 and the others are ashamed to admit where they’re from because of their peers.

      Why are you so focused on John Kerry? He was making a good point, and you are just going overboard trying to make him look like the bad guy. Why the f don’t you go to war and see how much you like it?

      Our all volunteer military has a slightly higher than the average person education.

      Sort of like President Bush also has a higher GPA than Kerry for the years they were both at Yale.

      Where is this story on the front pages of newspapers as those about Trent Lott and others who made such gaffes were? Oh, wait! Those were Republicans and our liberal press only covers their comments, never Democrats. And of course only Republicans are ever required to resign from anything. Never is there the call for Democrats to do the same.

      But considering Bush has higher GPA and even military test scores than Kerry, I wonder why he thought this so called joke would even be funny in the first place. And I guess we can find it in our newspapers on page five along with the record Dow averages, lowest unemployment in years and all the rest of the good news about the economy. And we thought it was the Economy, Stupid! Well, only with a Dem candidate.

      Kind of brings back memories for some of us older ones. Kerry under oath before congress swearing to have first hand knowledge of atrocities committed by our troops that never happened. Let’s face it! As Kerry said about Trent Lott making a joke at Strom Thurmond’s birthday party, we just can’t have this kind of person at a national level in politics in this country. Stick a fork in Kerry, he’s done!

      #6 Sarah,
      That would be the war that Senator Kerry voted in support of, would it not? He is just as responsible for our involvement in Iraq as anybody. A president can do only so much without the backing of congress which this one overwhelmingly had.

      And as for it being a good point to call our military stupid and uneducated, not having done their homework, etc. that is only your and Senator Kerry’s opinion. Mine in the service of his country has a graduate degree from Georgetown. And he graduated with yet another GPA higher than Kerry’s. He is not stupid nor uneducated and could have his choice of civilian jobs yet he CHOSES the service of his country for lesser pay. And it is he and men like him that allow you to go on blogs and call them stupid along with Kerry in making his good point. They stand in defense of your freedoms and volunteer to do so.

      We have an all volunteer military now in case no one has told you. No one has been forced or conscripted into service in this country. No, I’m sure many do not especially like service in Iraq but almost all report that they feel they are making a very vital and positive contribution to humanity, something not so many of the rest of us can say. Because something is unpleasant or dangerous is not a reason not to do it. Iraq is a part of the War on Terror no matter what the leftists in this country say. It’s a shame some have absolutely no appreciation for what they are doing risking their lives daily. But I guess there will always be those of that mind set and they get to reap the benefits of military service right along with the rest of us who do appreciate it.

      Mortella: If I could, I would give you a huge HUG right now!!!! Maybe we were separated at birth? Just kidding!!! I could not have said it better myself, and I agree 1000%!!! God bless your loved one who CHOSE to serve his country in the military and is doing a MAGNIFICENT job regardless of what Kerry and the liberals have to say about them. I wish I could give a big hug to all of our troops and tell them how much I admire and respect them all. GOD BLESS THEM!!!!

      When you ‘botch’ a joke, it means you screwed up the punch line, right? So what’s the correct punch line???

    11. Carpe Noctem on November 2nd, 2006 9:08 pm

      Kerry hates anything that EVEN rhymes with Bush!

      In my view, it was a poke at the Pres. — He
      blew the line, and very well was letting some of his true
      colors show through. (about his real
      feelings about our great military)

      How he handled the apology and the stuff the came after…


      …and thank God for that.

      Thank you, John… may your scheduled speaking
      engagements return to NORMAL very soon!

      #4 Funny, funny, funny.

      Someday, the words, “I’m sorry” will disappear. Wouldn’t it be neat is no apologies would be needed?
