Kerry Just Made It Even Worse
Sorry, I mean no disrespect to women, or women in the military. That said, it is ironic that a man who married his money leads off his defense by citing a female General. But the real kicker is in his defense his offical blog cited Markos "Screw ‘em" Moulitsas of Daily Kos. Kerry just figured out how to make things worse. I’m making a screen cap in case it comes down. I’ll post it if need be.
What was he thinking?
Over at Daily Kos, Markos, who noted that “…I haven’t been shy to pile on Kerry when warranted,” called what the Republicans were doing “a load of bullshit.” According to Markos, “Kerry responded the right way. Not by bowing to the full blast of the right wing noise machine, but by standing up to it on behalf of our troops, our nation, and the truth.”
Update: Katy Couric thinks it’s all a joke and gone by tomorrow – catch the audio.
I actually feel sorry for John Kerry. He wants to help. And, yes, this is mainly a controversy manufactured by the highly depressing "Freak Show." But Kerry has a tone-deaf appreciation for his own role in the Freak Show. And for that reason, he was foolish to hold a long press conference responding to his GOP tormenters
What Kerry mangles was his political future, not a joke.
