These words will come back to Haunt John Kerry!

Or at least keep him off of the national news.

Kerry supports Democratic politicians by making speeches for them and saying things like this:

“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.”

Don't believe it? Here:

John Kerry is an idiot. The Americans who serve in the Army, Navy, Airforce, Marines and Coast Guard are better educated than the population as a whole.

For an excellent, wonderful, insightful post on this subject - way more insightful than what you see here, go see Cassandra's take on John Kerry's words.

Honest to God, John and I do not discuss what we are posting on in the morning, in fact, we don't even post in the same rooms - but I just looked at beloved Spouse's post, and apparently GMTA!

And Allah has a few things to say, also.

Also, go see Beth's post.

What kind of man

Doesn't eat chocolate?
Apparently, John Kerry - maybe not eating chocolate is what puts him in a perpetually bad mood - or at least makes him look like he is in a bad mood!

Polipundit has the right of it

Apparently Polipundit can stand to watch Meet the Press and other Sunday morning "News Shows". Good thing - I can get the gist of what goes on without having to go through the pain of watching John F. Kerry's constant whining.

Polipundit reports:

John Kerry is on Meet the Press and here’s what he just said: “No one in the United States should try to over-hype this election.”

I bet that a very low turn out for the Iraqi election would have Kerry over-hyping it, don't you think?

I am very happy for the Iraqi people who were brave enough to vote, despite the threats of terrorists.

You can count on the MSM and the Democrats to do everything in their power to underplay the importance of a free election in Iraq.

From Short, Final, Cleared to Land's Post on Political Wet Blankets:

"It is hard to say that something is legitimate when whole portions of the country can't vote and doesn't vote," Kerry said.

Who died and make Kerry a Diplomat?

Good Lord. John Kerry is meeting with the head of a country that is supporting Islamic terrorists:
John Kerry Meets With Syrian President

Former Democratic presidential candidate John Kerry met Saturday with Syria's president and said he was hopeful that strained U.S.-Syrian relations could be improved, provided Washington seized "a moment of opportunity" currently available in the Middle East.

This is *not* a smart move on John Kerry's part.
He does not represent anyone outside of Massachusetts and has no right to make any promises to a foreign leader. Isn't this behavior almost treasonous?

Right ...

Okay - just read the headline of this Washington Times article: Polite society anticipates Teresa's pizazz

I think they made a mistake in using the term "Polite society".

I don't find it polite to tell a reporter to "shove it".

I don't think it is polite to call anyone a "scumbag" (fuckwad maybe, but not a scumbag, and never on network tv!)

And mostly, it is very impolite to say that Laura Bush never had a real job. I think that all women who have stayed home to raise children have real jobs!!

Ms H-K needs to think and probably do some research before she speaks. I still cannot imagine that any society that is 'polite' thinks that Ms H-K would be a good thing to have around.

Dumb and Dumber

We are at war with Wahabists. Our very first order of business should be to win the war against terror. But the double Johns are more concerned about taking over the management of high schools from local authorities, or so it seems.

From The John Kerry for President web site "Our Plan for America":

Every Young Person Graduates
Today 3 in 10 young people do not finish high school, and half of Hispanics, African Americans, Native Americans don't graduate. Kerry-Edwards will keep better track of graduation rates to hold schools accountable for raising them; will offer more tutoring and mentoring to at-risk youth; will make big high schools smaller when they are not working for their students; and will strengthen the high school curriculum so all students can graduate with a meaningful diploma.

People - the federal government should certainly not be meddling with high school curriculum or high school size. That is the job of the local and state school boards.

I have to wonder what makes them think that the size of the High School itself would have any relationship with the success of the individual student.

The only way that anyone can guarantee that 100 percent of high school students make it to graduation is to force all 17 and 18 year old kids to stay in school - and I don't think you can do that to the 18 year olds.

Kerry's Prescription Drug Fallacy

John Kerry criticizes President Bush for not allowing importation of prescription drugs from countries where the drugs are cheaper.
From the John Kerry for President website:

The Kerry-Edwards plan will reduce prescription drug prices by allowing the re-importation of safe prescription drugs from Canada, overhauling the Medicare drug plan, ensuring low-cost drugs, and ending artificial barriers to generic drug competition.

The Congressional Budget Office disagrees.

In a briefing entitled "Would Prescription Drug Importation Reduce U.S. Drug Spending?", their conclusion is that it might reduce prescription prices by 1%. Now, mind you, once we start reimporting drugs into our country, the FDA will not be able to regulate them - it will be hard to know what the original expiration dates, etc., would be for those drugs, but Kerry and Edwards are apparently willing to risk possibly bad and outdated pills to save 1%. And think of the possibility of terrorists reselling tainted pills to the US from - say, Canada.

Here is the conclusion of the CBO:

On the basis of its evaluation of proposals to date, CBO has concluded that permitting the importation of foreign-distributed prescription drugs would produce at most a modest reduction in prescription drug spending in the United States. H.R. 2427, for example, which would have permitted importation from a broad set of industrialized countries, was estimated to reduce total drug spending by $40 billion over 10 years, or by about 1 percent.(14) Permitting importation only from Canada would produce a negligible reduction in drug spending.

And after thinking about it some more, I suspect it will cost us more, because, for these reimported drugs to be safe, then the FDA will have to get involved with verifying their safety.
