It’s been a while since Sen. John Kerry has made any news worthy of reporting. And it shouldn’t surprise when he pops his head out it’s to spew a load of BS.

John Kerry appeared on ABC’s “This Week” this past Sunday and made a claim that “every major study that has been done by a legitimate group … shows that there are hundreds of thousands of jobs to be created if you pass our (cap-and-trade) legislation. And if you wind up pricing carbon.”

Would you be surprised to learn Kerry is a lying piece of dung?

Nah, me neither.

John Kerry on the correct side of an issue. The issue, the firing of Don Imus:

“I think that the…you know the punishment has to fit the crime so to speak. I think a long suspension, or a strong suspension met with his appropriate level, given that the team forgave him. To me it was in the hands of the young women. They made the judgment that they thought he was genuine and they felt they could forgive him. And I think it was appropriate to pay a price on the airwaves but I’m not sure that it was appropriate to say you’re off forever.”

Of course the reason for his support is partially exposed in his answer to the interviewer’s next question:

Dominic Carter: “If Mr. Imus has a show in the future would you appear on it?”

Kerry: “It would depend on what the context of the show was obviously. If he goes back to doing the same old same old I’d have trouble doing that, but if it’s a different show and he says it’s going to be different sure.”


Kerry spent a good portion of his presidential campaign sitting beside Imus knowing full well what his reputation was. At the time Kerry didn’t care, the ends justified the means. It didn’t matter then and it won’t matter in the future. Imus provided the only radio audience that reached the young male independent demographic. That won’t change no matter what venue he ends up on.

Should Imus continue his career on a satellite channel Kerry, Sharpton, Durbin, Biden and all the rest of the two-faced [Dim]ocrats will rush to his side to grab the mic again in the post “nappy head ho’s era.

Well at least he tries to when he called into the Don Imus show.

”Of course I’m sorry about a botched joke. You think I love botched jokes?” Kerry said during an appearance Wednesday on Don Imus’ nationally syndicated radio program. ”I mean, you know, it’s pretty stupid.”


”I’m sorry that that’s happened,” he said of his earlier comment. ”But I’m not going to stand back from the reality here, which is, they’re trying to change the subject. It’s their campaign of smear and fear.”

Imus, never one to mince words, had a response to Kerry’s apology every [Dim]ocrat wishes would happen: Please Stop It. Stop Talking. Go Home. Get on the bike, go windsurfing, anything.

Botched jokes notwithstanding – and the Republicans love them , at least this one – notice no apology is given for implying the Commander-in-Chief is too stupid to lead the troops that Kerry now claims, apparently, are smarter than Mr. Nuance himself.

This half-hearted apology might actually mean something if it had come on Tuesday morning after his remarks of Monday evening were first known. Instead he arrogantly strode to a podium at a press conference he called, where he lashed out at Republicans (“despicable Republican attacks,” from “a stuffed suit White House mouthpiece,” and a “doughy Rush Limbaugh.”) for attempting to change the subject away from Iraq.

As Kerry Flails away with a non-apology that came just short of 48 hours too late, the [Dim]ocrats still have no plan for Iraq and John F’ing Kerry is still an ASSHOLE!

Sometimes jokes don’t always pan out the way they were planned for and written. Just ask Jay Leno, or Letterman. Assuming Letterman has time to spare when not making an ass of himself during Bill O’Reilly interviews.

If it was a joke I guess the punchline was lost on the [Dim]ocrats that have canceled Kerry’s campaign stops on their behalf. Even Shillery has come out and called the comment “inappropriate.”

All that aside, there is some comedic value to had out of John F’ing Kerry’s “botched joke.”

In an unprecedented speech yesterday, John Kerry implied that low achievers in college would wind up personally fighting Bin Laden and Laden’s insurgents in Iraq. Kerry today again lost his composure (blew his lid) in a live speech, lashing out again at the Republican party and, after the cameras stop rolling in a fit of uncontrollable rage accidentally bit his tongue off, the tongue sailing, landing in the lap of CNN reporter Douglas Walsh who immediately secured the tongue, returned it to security agents who rushed Kerry and his tongue to Dalton Memorial Hospital for re-attachment.

Rush Limbaugh fresh off of his now infamous tour of attacking Micheal J Fox immediately lashed out at Kerry, Tony Snow, Carl Rove for letting this happen….

They should have sent the tongue for enshrinement in the Asinine Hall of Fame.

Oh… and read the rest. And while you’re at it read, John F. Kerry: Still “Unfit for Command.”

So why does he continue to prove the obvious?

To anyone with 1/10 of one functioning brain cell knows with all certainty that John “F*ckin” Kerry, erstwhile presidential candidate, never has, doesn’t now, and never will hold any amount of respect for those men and women of our Armed Forces.

So it shouldn’t come as a surprise he believes those that comprise the U.S. Military today are undeserving praise and respect and if it weren’t for the “free ride” given to them by Uncle Sam they would be flippin’ burgers or pickin’ strawberries. A bunch of under-educated barbarians they are.


Kerry told the crowd at a political rally held at Pasadena City College to study hard and get an education — or else:

“You know, education, if you make the most of it, if you study hard and you do your homework, and you make an effort to be smart, uh, you, you can do well. If you don’t, you get stuck in Iraq.”

And in true Kerry fashion, as the Capt’n Ed notes, Kerry “insulted the troops before he lauded them,” by later saying it’s all Bush’s fault Kerry has diarrhea of the oral cavity:

“The White House’s attempt to distort my true statement is a remarkable testament to their abject failure in making America safe,” the Massachusetts senator said. “It’s a stunning statement about their willingness to reduce anything in America to raw politics.”

About two weeks ago I received an email from the official Kerry folks that that started with this paragraph:

Dear Marc,

I remember when I was back home from Vietnam and veterans were speaking out against the Vietnam war policy, someone yelled at the vets: “You should support the troops.” One of those veterans said simply: “Lady, we are the troops.”

So the question must be asked. If he believes today U.S. Military are dumber than a box of rocks and when he’s pimping for money he claims “we are the troops” what does that make Kerry?

The answer is obvious, a despicable, mean-spirited little man undeserving respect or the lofty position he currently holds both in the Senate and as a leader of the [Dim]ocrat Party.

UPDATE: At this point the best quote related to this story (so far, the blog-storm has only just begun) comes via an “unnamed Democratic Congressman, commenting to ABC News: “I guess Kerry wasn’t content blowing 2004, now he wants to blow 2006, too.” (H/T Kevin)

UPDATE II: Is it any surprise the Kerry story has made Al-Jazeera?

According to them “A Democratic congressional candidate in a close race in Iowa has cancelled a campaign event with Kerry, saying the senator’s comments were inappropriate.” Kerry has also canceled an appearance for a Democratic candidate in Minnesota.

I guess that will kill the Dem meme about Republicans running away from Bush.

They also claim, according to Kerry’s staff, he meant to say “Just ask President Bush”, which he omitted.

Ah-huh. Loves the Troops but thinks Bush is uneducated. Riiiiight. What a sack of manure! Someone needs to remind this dunderhead that Bush matched or exceeded Kerry’s grades in college.

Provocative title yes, but truth be told when you make the rounds of the Sunday morning talk shows and see the erstwhile presidential candidate make such a fool of himself you have little choice.

Kerry, known around the Cavity as The Baroque Candidate, appeared on ABC’s This Week with George Stephanopolous making the claim Joe Lieberman was seriously out of touch with the citizens of Connecticut:

Sen. John Kerry, D-Mass., blasted a fellow Democrat, Sen. Joe Lieberman, for continuing his bid in the Connecticut Senate race despite a narrow loss to newcomer Ned Lamont in the Democratic primary earlier this month.

“I’m concerned that [Lieberman] is making a Republican case,” Kerry told ABC News’ “This Week with George Stephanopoulos” in an exclusive appearance.

Kerry accused the 2000 Democratic vice presidential candidate of “adopting the rhetoric of Dick Cheney,” on the issue of Iraq.

“Joe Lieberman is out of step with the people of Connecticut,” Kerry added, insisting Lieberman’s stance on Iraq, “shows you just why he got in trouble with the Democrats there.”

Kerry called Lieberman’s independent bid a “huge mistake” and applauded businessman-turned-politician Lamont as “courageous” for challenging Lieberman on the war.

Looks like Kerry is in reciept of the Dean memo, he attempted the same crapola last week.

Kerry needs a not so gentle reminder the primary election held in Connecticut only drew about 7% of eligible voters and hardly can be considered an indicator of “trouble” for anyone. Well except Ned “Blog What Blog” Lamont.

If Kerry hadn’t wasted his time babbling incoherently on ABC he would have heard Joe Lieberman on Face the Nation take a stance that is close to the heart of his appeasement monkey base, the resignation of Donald Rumsfeld.

And while tuning in CBS to see the Lieberman appearence he could have studied the latest Quinnipiac poll that has Joe-mentum ahead by 11 points in a three-way race, up from 4 just after the primary.

Somebody is out of step, but it isn’t Joe.

2004 mega-loser John Kerry made a stop in my home state of Michigan attempting to shore up the failing political fortunes of Gov. Jennifer Granholm. (H/T Paul)

Of course it wasn’t all glad-handing the local politicos and a few air kisses for the Governor. He had to take a couple of swipes at President Bush over the current Middle East crisis in the process.

“If I was president, this wouldn’t have happened,” said Kerry during a noon stop at Honest John’s bar and grill in Detroit’s Cass Corridor.

Has anyone kept track how many Kerry quotes since the election have started with, “If I was president?” It must number in the hundreds, at least.

But I digress. Bush, he claims, “has been so concentrated on the war in Iraq that other Middle East tensions arose as a result.”

“The president has been so absent on diplomacy when it comes to issues affecting the Middle East,” Kerry said. “We’re going to have a lot of ground to make up (in 2008) because of it.”

What kind of diplomacy has been missing you ask? For fear of misquoting this idiot I’ll let him speak for himself:

“This is about American security and Bush has failed. He has made it so much worse because of his lack of reality in going into Iraq.…We have to destroy Hezbollah,” he said.

Well now, under his watch his diplomatic “skills” would have allowed a different outcome because he would have been more attentive to the Middle East. (with the help of those mythical “foreign leaders” he spoke incessantly about)

But despite his “Mad Skills” we still “have to destroy Hezbollah.”

As Paul says, “He was for destroying Hezbollah before he was against it.”

I think Kerry needs a little refresher course, not that it would do any good, but I’ll feel better.

March 21, 2005 at a meeting with Jordanian King Abdullah at the White House.

‘We view Hezbollah as a terrorist organization. And I would hope that Hezbollah would prove that they’re not by laying down arms and not threatening peace,” he added.

As for the Israeli-Palestinian dispute, Bush said, ”The role of the United States will be to continue to urge both parties to make the sacrifices necessary.” He urged Israel to withdraw from settlements and Palestinians to continue to fight against terrorism.

King Abdullah said he and Bush held ”very fruitful” discussions about the Middle East peace process. ”We had the chance to discuss the issues of the peace process, how we can move that forward and, obviously, our commitment to regional reform,” he said.

Mar 16, 2005, Bush urged Hezbollah to disarm and to stay out of Israeli-Palestinian disputes.

Etc, etc, etc.

John Kerry STFU. And go away!

UPDATE: Capt’n Ed points out Bush efforts that resulted in UN Security Council Resolution 1559, which demanded that the Lebanese government disarm Hezbollah and remove them from the Israeli border and it was the Bush White House that allied with France (noted in link above) to force Syria out of Lebanon after the Cedar Revolution in 2005.

John Kerry – caught lying again!

Kerry: “No wonder Thomas Jefferson himself said: “Dissent is the greatest form of patriotism.”

The Jefferson Library: There are a number of quotes that we do not find in Thomas Jefferson’s correspondence or other writings; in such cases, Jefferson should not be cited as the source. Among the most common of these spurious Jefferson quotes [is]:

* “Dissent is the highest form of patriotism.”

I guess one of those 4 “D” marks Kerry received at Yale was in History 101.

Don’t ask how, but somewhere along the line I became listed on John Kerry’s mailing list. Obviously he or his associates believe scraping email addresses is a productive way of gaining support for his hair-brained ideas. It’s also interesting to note the same idiots doing the scraping don’t comply with the legality of removing one’s name from the list. I’ve made 3 requests to be removed and still get his missives about once a week.

Anyway, I don’t normally post much on Kerry since his abismal failure as the Democratic candidate for president. But this paragragraph from the latest email deserves to be highlighted.

“Tell the truth. Fire the incompetents. Get out of Iraq. Have health care for all Americans. These are pretty simple messages, and they’re worth fighting for today.”

That’s what I said yesterday when I appeared on “Meet the Press” to push our call for two deadlines and an exit from Iraq.

You and I both know it will take a massive citizen effort to force a President bogged down in this war to change his course – but doing so is our moral responsibility.

I urge you to join me today in calling for the withdrawal of American combat troops by the end of 2006 – and sooner than that if Iraqi politicians allow the civil war to grow and continue to delay, squabble and jockey for their own political turf while our brave soldiers sacrifice life and limb every day to create the conditions for democracy.

Got that? Come hell or high water he wants the US out of
Iraq no matter the consequences or what is happening on the ground.

Sound familiar? Yep, just as in Vietnam he reports for duty but does and says everything to hightail it out even if it means laying and cheating to do it.

Ever wonder where “War Hero” and erstwhile Presidential candidate has been doing of late? Beside practicing the art of losing even more support he received in November 2004 I mean.

Not content with his current loser status and continuing his mostly undistinguished Senate career (Five bills authored in 20 years) he has become an author of sorts.

No there isn’t a Kerry bio epic in the works, he has joined the millions that have joined the blogosphere.

His “better half” Teresa hasn’t allowed him to actually purchase a domain and any blogging software, but that hasn’t kept him from expressing himself. (As if that was a problem before)

Sen. John Kerry has become a dKos Kiddie! The Blogosphere’s home for the latest conspiracy theories, hate, vitriol, and whose owner became infamous for screeching “screw them” about Americans murdered and mutilated by terrorists in Iraq?

Funny what happens when the spotlight of the Presidential campaign is dimmed. During the campaign and at the height of public outrage over the “screw’em” comment Kerry de-linked the site from his campaign website.

Now he has become a full-fledged member complete with tin-foil hat.

It’s also a pretty sad commentary on how far one of the leaders of the Democratic Party has sunk to in an effort to court the “Anybody But Bush” crowd.
