    yup:
    BAGHDAD, Iraq (CNN) -- U.S. troops showed their
    displeasure -- and sense of humor -- regarding Sen.
    John Kerry`s comments this week to a group of
    California college students, whom he told to work
    hard in school or they`d "get stuck in Iraq."

    I find it amusing that I hear more and more of that for every election that happens.

    Oh, and it wasn`t a misquote hydrotaoist. He botched a bad joke to begin with (although hearing it on NPR, I couldn`t tell there was supposed to be something else to it) and then said it was supposed to be aimed at Bush.

    Let me rephrase the joke for those of you Fox News loving Bush supporters.

    "If you don`t get a good education, you`re f*cked."

    Being stationed in Iraq = f*cked.

    The joke wasn`t appropriate but not so much because it was in bad taste, but it was presented to millions of morons known as the general public. Kerry should know better than to say anything that could dangerously approach anti-patriotic with the giant swinging penis of America judging every statement. Saying he simply disagreed with the war would probably yield moderately similar results.

    Also, despite the fact that EVERYTHING out of Bush`s mouth borders on retarded, this was the best they could get on Kerry to embarass him. I find this to be more of a compliment than anything. When a botched joke becomes the center of attention you know you don`t make a lot of mistakes otherwise.

    mikallang - yeah, those eight years of peace and economic prosperity under Clinton sure did suck alright. Ah, remember the good old days where the only thing we had to worry about was whether or not the President got his jollies off with Monica? I hate Bush, but don`t get me wrong, I was never a big fan of Kerry either. As Jay Leno once said, if God had wanted us to vote, he would`ve given us candidates.

    It`s a damn shame how Americans have it set into their minds there were only two candidates in the 2000 and 2004 elections. Don`t buy into the same underhanded, mud-slinging, corporate-money-yielding methods of the Republicans and Democrats; vote Nader or independent.

    Bush could piss himself in a press conference, mispronounce twenty words, make ten new ones and people still wouldn`t recognize anything unusual or out of the ordinary.

    He`s like a redneck robot with bad circuitry.

    Before anyone decides to attack this statement, keep in mind I`m not even suggesting Kerry would have been a good president nor am I supporting his defense simply because Bush is a child holding a gun. I just think his comment should have been criticized for about five minutes then dismissed. I love how dramatic and bored the general population is.

    How is that lucky? The only reason we`re even at war is so the Bush administration can have an excuse to void every little piece of the constitution bit by bit.

    This is all blown out of proportion because of the midterm elections coming up Tuesday. This looks bad for the Dems but really worse for the GOP because it is bringing attention back to the Iraq war which isn`t something Republicans want to have attention on right before the elections. If you notice comments made on the war now by Bush and whoever its all like, `too hard to tell at the moment` because they don`t want to give any real answers since this could hurt them being a strong issue in these elections.

    Now it sickens me that all Right wing radio is talking about is this Kerry joke which was yes, was not good one even if he said it right. Would a man who served in Vietnam say something like people in the military are dumb? No, especially because of how Vets got treated when they got back from there, he wouldn`t want to do that to people today. Even O`Reilly said, okay shut up, it was a botched joke, get over it, Kerry isn`t a comedian.

    Republicans are taking cheap shots, sad

    I`ve got to say it, but isn`t it against military protocol for active duty soldiers to engage in politics? I mean, the military serves democrats and republicans equally. I don`t think active duty soldiers should engage in politics.

    Plus, Kerry didn`t say they were dumb - the GOP said that Kerry said that they were dumb. But, because those soldiers seem to be republicans, they get this picture on the internet. Hmm, something is wrong with that.

    Now, though Kerry wasn`t speaking to this, I have to say something that everyone in America knows but is too afraid to say because the GOP scream machine feeds on spin. It is a fact that the majority of enlisted soldiers come from economically disadvantaged backgrounds - the poor. Rich kids tend not to serve because $18,000 a year isn`t acceptable to them. Many of our officers join the military to pay for college. This isn`t a critique of the intelligence of our fighting men and women, its a demographic observation.

    And lastly, while Kerry too was privilaged, he VOLUNTEERED to goto `Nam, while Bush`s father landed him a stint guarding Texas from the Viet Cong.

    Something wing-nuts hate to talk about is the fact that though the GOP loves to talk about how much they love the military, most leaders in the GOP ALL HAVE NEVER SERVED IN THE MILITARY, except Bush, but even there its doubtful he fulfilled all his Duties.

    Cheney - Multiple Deferments.
    Frist - Never served.
    Hastert - Never served.
    Blunt - Never served.
    Santorum - Never served.
    Allen - Rooted for `Nam, but never found the time to go there.
    Rove - Never served.
    Gingritch - Never served.

    But boy howdy, those folks sure love sending other people to die for their just war. Don`t they?

    If you`d like to deny that America is running itself into a rut by confining itself to only two political parties and therefore only "two" philosophies to solving problems, nawkshis, be my guest; I`ll hold you to it. The fact remains that both Republicans and Democrats utilize the same methods and are allowing no free thought, no original solutions to political and societal problems.

    I understand your argument on why it is bad to let the country get stuck with two political parties that get more extreme day by day, but voting for Nader does not solve the problem.

    What an exceedingly ignorant "joke" from Kerry. I`m sure he meant it tongue in cheek, but geeze, "Get an education or you`ll end up in Iraq!"...c`mon.

    I like the way the American Bush haters are so quick to let Kerry off the hook by saying,

    1) He was misquoted/misinterpreted/etc.

    or...

    2) "Yeah? Well ChimpyMcHaliburtanHitlerBush is a (insert tired and bored accusation here.)

    or...

    3) Clinton was great (even though he didn`t have to (or want to) cope with a world stage like the one we have now.

    "I understand your argument on why it is bad to let the country get stuck with two political parties that get more extreme day by day, but voting for Nader does not solve the problem."

    No, a single vote alone wouldn`t likely solve the problem, whether for Nader or other independent, but nothing is gained by voting for either a Republican or Democrat, which only acts to perpetuate the political rut in this country. If, say, enough votes for Nader were cast and he had secured a majority (both electorate and popular), we would have taken a major stride in a new direction.

    I`m not going to allow social pressure influence the confidence or reasoning with which I cast my vote. I would feel better voting for an unlikely winner whom I support than voting within the same backwards political parties that polarize the nation and yield to the rich.

    No wars for eight years. We had a war with Iraq both before and after Clinton`s run. The economy was in a surplus, now we have a HUGE defecit. Sorry you signed up for the military and didn`t like it, and I as well as everyone appreciates it I`m sure, but life was better back then.

    I really hope Kerry doesn`t speak again...preferably ever again. Hopefully he doesn`t screw up the democrats getting control of the house/senate so they can impeach (illegal wiretaps and all that jazz) Bush and get us out of Iraq finally. Though then Cheney steps up, thats no good. Hmm, hopefully in 2008 we have better candidates. Democrats will probably get screwed over again because the candidates will likely be a woman (Clinton) and a black guy (Obama). Nothing against them, just general discrimination in America.

    Man oh Man where`s Clinton when you need him? 10 years of peace and good economy and now what

    Idiot President who got us in a war based on poo

    and John Kerry who really can`t say anything about the situation.

    But really if John Kerry won hell let`s say Bush lost to Gore because Supreme Court recounted the votes, could we really be worse off now?

    Just to clear things up, I believe the original joke that he "botched" was meant to be
    "you get *us* stuck in Iraq"- i.e. George Bush. Obviously he would never be stupid enough to make fun of soldiers. No, the joke wasn`t that good, but it wasn`t meant to be offensive either.
    Vote Colbert/Stewart `08!

    Kerry was clearly pandoring to college students, he suggested the soldiers/marines in Iraq were not as smart as his audience. I do not think Kerry is as smart as our military in Iraq.

    Okay... We all know Bush isn`t the most linguistic student in the class. But really, all Kerry has going for him is the H. J. Heinz money he married into. I don`t fully agree with what`s going on in Iraq, but the USA has not been attacked since 911, and our actions are having a positive effect on terrorism. The problem is, you never hear the good things reported. Talk to someone that`s been there and is now back home if you want to hear the real truth.

    It`s what our troops are doing around the world that allows John Kerry the freedom of speech he has, and if he wants to use it to prove how big a dumb piece of crap he is, then I will proudly defend his right to do so!

    And Gore or Kerry neither one could have kept us as safe as we are right now!

    I wish I was old enough to vote for his 2004 run. If anything, any and all votes for him would hopefully convince other independents that running as an independent is a viable option.

    The Problem with nader though is that he doesn`t have enough popularity to really get the votes. All he ends up doing is splitting votes causing democrats to lose.

    I really think we`d be safer now then we were back then if we elected Gore. Bush attacked Iraq for almost no reason at all. Osama is also still free. Like we really want to let our "allies" find him.

    Everyone`s argument would be different if Bush had said it. ;-)

    If you`re going to go on public television and say something, think before you say it. I wouldn`t want to be in Iraq and hear that, because I`m there, I must have been a failure in life.

    The whole govt. needs to be cleared out. There are guys in the senate that have been there for four six year terms! And people are always bitching about how things don`t change... well duh!
    We keep voting the same exact people back into office and then we wonder why things don`t get better.
    All the political promises are accepted as complete crap by now. Because they know that even if they break every single promise they made, we`ll still vote them back in!
    The govt. can basically do whatever the hell it wants and people in this country are too damn stupid to do anything about it. whee don`t we suck?

    people seem to need one singular reason for everything, life is not that simple, you will never truly know bush, clinton, kerry or whomever the president is, by the time you wise up to this, you will have been brainwashed by simplicity & already served someone elses agenda, all those i just mentioned are sharp people, barring their morals, it`s the public whom is ignorant & the next generation is being brought up right now with different ignorant perspectives, this is what politicians know & use to prey on the young, because they are impressionable & eager to acquiesce, especially when the medium is used to accomplish this. people should be more concerned about who or what drives the media, then what the medium is attempting to distract everyone with

    ^ Most of the news media is considerably liberal, Fox News being what seems to me the singular exception. I get most of my political news from either BBC (they offer a European perspective, which, although liberal, enables me to glimpse the world through their eyes) and C-Span.

    I recommend the book titled `Bias` by Bernard Goldberg, Regnery Publishing. Very good read; I`ll give you more details if you are interested.

    also Overmann, other candidates should be more viable, i feel though under the current method of the left & right leaves a calx residue aka the independent

    i say vote for them regardless, it`s not about 2 halves, rather the choice

    Most of the people here don`t "diss" the president. Alot of us disagree with his actions on foreign policy. Note the word "disagree", so please when you try to make a political argument, never you street words like "diss" or even internet slang like n00b etc.
