Botched Joke or Blatant Slam?

Last evening, Senator John F. Kerry (D- Massachusetts) (he served in Vietnam, dontcha know?) made this statement at a fundraiser at Pasadena City College:
"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." (click to see video of his remarks)
He claims it was a botched attempt at a joke aimed at President Bush. Most other people say it's a pathetic slam on the men and women of the US Armed Forces who have and are currently serving in Iraq.

There is this little part of me- the nice, see-the-good-in-everyone part of me- that wants to believe Senator Kerry, to believe that he was just poking fun at W and would never say anything disparaging about our soldiers in harm's way. Then I remembered something.

This is John Kerry we're talking about. This is the man who testified before the Senate Committee on Foreign Relations about war crimes that he and other soldiers supposedly committed in Vietnam. He had no proof, no evidence. He took every opportunity he had to drag down the good names of honorable men who fought a war no one liked.

It's just like him to say horrible things about the military (the military that I'm sure he only joined because it would look good on a political resumé). It's just like him (and other libs) to think that only dumb hicks voluntarily join the military.

You know what was funny? When confronted by his own words, he didn't do the honorable thing and say, "I was poking fun at the President, and it came out wrong. I'm sorry if I offended any of our service members by by comment." Instead, he said that it was the Administration who should apologize to the military. He just couldn't let an opportunity to dis the most hated Republican around one more time.

Is anyone going to buy what he was selling in today's press conference? The DU and the gangs have already drank the Kool-aid, so they'll believe anything he says. "Moderate" Democrats? Maybe not so much. The DNC needs to be very careful, or their rhetoric will drive away those they need if they really want to "fix what's broken" in our country.

Is anyone outside of the loyal opposition going to believe it was just a botched joke? I kinda doubt it. He was just saying what he thinks.
