On Monday John Kerry, U.S. senator from Massachusetts, said: "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. If you don't, you get stuck in Iraq."
Now the first I read about Kerry's so-called gaff was yesterday on a Taylor Marsh's HuffPo blog. I scanned the blog but it didn't register. Not a story, I concluded.
But every slip of the lip is a story to our "liberal" media. Yes, the "liberal" media is tripping all over its collective dick saying that Kerry said only stupid and uneducated kids enlist in the military.
Well, you know what, if they say that's what he said then he's right.
If, after... what three and a half, four years, in Iraq?... and you're a kid who enlists in the military and volunteers to go to Iraq, you are frigging stupid. If you're a high school kid who willingly feeds the killing machine, you are frigging stupid. If you're a high school kid who believes Bush's war on terror has to be fought over there so we don't have to fight'em over here, you are frigging stupid.
But if you're a high school or college kid who believes all of the above, doesn't enlist for the military--Because you know that some other poor slob will to it and your precious time and life chasing an MBA is too valuable-- you are frigging scum.
