By now I’m sure everyone heard John Kerry’s comments:
Kerry told students, “You know, education, if you make the most of it, if you study hard and do your homework, and you make an effort to be smart, you can do well.” But, he added, “If you don’t, you get stuck in Iraq.”
There has been some very interesting commentary around the blogsphere about his original comments including Stupid is, Stuck in Iraq (Drill Sgt. Bleu U.S. Army ret.), Yoor Soldjurs Kneed Halp, John Kerry, Not Presidential Material, reason #456,987,321, and more…
Personally I wasn’t overly upset since I’m stuck in Afghanistan not Iraq. Just Kiddin’
I had assumed that John Kerry was trying to take a cheap shot at George W. Bush but failed miserably. What I never expected was his stupid reaction when challenged on it. Either way he has now apologized.
