This is the "Joke" that John Kerry said:
"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."
The person who made that "joke" is a man who has run, and is wanting to run, for the highest political office in this nation. This person would be the Head Officer in charge of our troops, should he be elected. If our country didn't rise up and absolutely make a huge stink about this issue, our soldiers, our children, our babies over there in that stinking desert, would most assuredly feel humiliated, abandoned and abused. If your son or daughter were in Iraq..now really think about this...take a moment to really allow your soul to think of your child over there...would you want them to hear this joke? Even in the best of contexts and after many explanations, apologies and political jargonthat "Joke" would weigh on their hearts and minds. They would wonder. 'How many American citizens feel the same?' Yes, This, amid their service to our country, is what they would wonder. I know I wouldn't want my sons (I have 5 sons) to fight a war under those circumstances. I don't know what he was trying to say but he didn't say anything constructive that's for sure.
