Kerry's Stupid Joke

Yes it was a stupid joke. Kerry says he botched the joke. Even so, any joke about about being stuck in Iraq is pretty stupid. And Kerry got nailed.

Trouble is, the president expoited it in the worst possible way. In so doing he kicked sand in the faces of the voters. He used it in order to take our minds off his failures. Guess who wants us to forget that 105 American servicemen were killed in Iraq in October. Guess who wants us to forget that 3000 Americans have been killed in Iraq since the war started -- including service men and women, contractors from bechtel and Halliburton, and civilians doing reconstruction work. Guess who wants us to forget that we have lost more people in Iraq than we lost on September 11. That is an ironic result for on who claims that he is keeping Americans safe from terrorist attacks. Guess who wants us to forget that two or three thousand Iraqi's are killed every months. Iraq suffers ten September 11's every year.

Guess who wants us to forget who it was who sent the 3000 Americans to Iraq where they were killed.

Now the president claims that he has a plan for winning the war in Iraq. Reminds me of Nixon's secret plan for ending the war in Vietnam. America went down to defeat in Vietnam and Nixon resigned. Now the new Nixon is dragging us down to defeat in Iraq. If he had a decent bone left in his body, he would resign. Every time Bush, Cheney, or Rumsfeld says that the situation is improving, it just gets worse. There is no 'light at the end of the tunnel'.

When we go to the polls on Tuesday, do not forget the 105 American service men and women who were killed last month. Do not forget the 3000 Americans killed in Iraq. Do not forget how Bush, Cheney, Rumsfeld, and Colin Powell sold us bogus intelligence to justify this fatally flawed misadventure.

The Vulcans had an exaggerated overconfidence in their ability to remake Muslim societies in their image and likeness. Now is the time to hold them accountable for the greatest foreign policy disaster ever suffered by the United States. We will spend the rest of this century trying to atone for this grievious sin.
