JOHN KERRY: Lest we forget

So, you think it's all been said about John Kerry's shameful remarks? Say it anyway. Say it over and over again till election day.

After all the October surprises and dirty tricks the Defeatocrats have been cooking up for weeks now and all the messages their accomplices in the mainstream mediocracy have been cranking out to discourage conservatives from turning out to vote, they deserve this. Boy, do they ever.

Talk about a silver platter. What could possibly illustrate the differences between the parties--and what's at stake in wartime--better than this revealing Kerry gaffe? And do you think the voters get this? Oh, yeah. Just listen to the buzz. This should have some kind of traction for a good while.

We close with this devastating commentary from Mark Steyn, thanks to Michelle Malkin:

If you talk to Democrats of the middle-class and upper-middle-class and (in John Heinz Kerry’s case) the neo-Gulf-emir-class, you’ll have heard the same thing a thousand times: these poor fellows in Iraq, they’re only there because they’re too poverty-stricken and ill-educated so they couldn’t become Senators and New York Times reporters and tenured Queer Studies professors like normal Americans do. That is, in fact, what they mean by the claim that they “support our troops”: they want to bring them home and retrain them so they’re not forced into taking jobs as Bush’s torturers and thugs. It’s part of the same condescension as describing soldiers as “our children”. If a 22-year old intern wants to drop to the Oval Office broadloom, she’s a grown woman exercising her freedom of choice. But, if a 28-year old guy wants to serve in Iraq, he’s a poor wee misguided Grade Six drop-out who doesn’t know any better. John Kerry’s soundbite is interesting not because it’s the umpteenth self-inflicted wound by Mister Nuance but because it gets right to the heart of the Democrats’ “support” for the troops.

Oh, ouch!
