John Kerry Insults Soldiers, MSM Covers Up (Updated)

Update: Video

Update II: Kerry responds:

Washington – Senator John Kerry issued the following statement in response to White House Press Secretary Tony Snow, assorted right wing nut-jobs, and right wing talk show hosts desperately distorting Kerry’s comments about President Bush to divert attention from their disastrous record:

“If anyone thinks a veteran would criticize the more than 140,000 heroes serving in Iraq and not the president who got us stuck there, they're crazy. This is the classic G.O.P. playbook. I’m sick and tired of these despicable Republican attacks that always seem to come from those who never can be found to serve in war, but love to attack those who did.

There's more in this vein, i.e., blaming Republicans for interpreting Kerry's words as if they were spoken in plain English. Oh, wait, they were. Watch the video.

No wonder this idiot lost in 2004.

2004 Presidential loser John Kerry spoke to students Monday at a rally for California gubernatorial candidate Phil Angelides at Pasadena City College. Kerry delivered an intolerable insult to the brave Americans protecting us in the War on Terror. You didn't hear about it on the Nightly News.

From The Conservative Voice, here's what Kerry had to say:

“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. And if you don’t you get stuck in Iraq.”
As NewsBusters points out, the mainstream media, in full Democratic campaign mode for next week's midterm elections, have failed to report this outrageous and revealing Kerry gaffe.
