John, John, John...this isn't 1969...there is no draft...no college deferment...doing the timewarp again, John?

“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. And if you don’t you get stuck in Iraq.”
John Kerry, October 30, 2006

Angelides gets boost at all-star rally at PCC
By Cortney Fielding Staff Writer
San Gabriel, CA, 10/31/2006


Hoping to breathe life into a flagging gubernatorial run, Democrats on Monday turned out a cast of party all-stars for Phil Angelides at a Pasadena City College appearance.

Sen. John Kerry of Massachusetts, Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa, state Assembly Speaker Fabian Nu ez and California Sen. Barbara Boxer all gave the California treasurer ringing endorsements, while telling about 370 PCC students that Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger does not have their best interests in mind.

>>man I'm so sorry I missed the circus. geez this group is the worst of the worst

Didn't read the links or whatever, but that's a pretty poor statement by EE standards. When you've got groups such as "Reagan, Bush, Poindexter, North" and "Bush, Cheney, Rumsfeld, Limbaugh" and you don't even consider boy bands (if they are indeed groups), then you're shooting blanks redlands.

Phil Angelides is the candiate for California governor who said he was going to sue the Feds over the deployment of California National Guard troops and make the government bring them home...even though he concedes the Calif. Attorney General has already said that's not in the governor's power.

Angelides, Boxer, Kerry...I dunno, that's a pretty stellar line-up.

Oh it's got it's star-sputter-power, but it's still no match for either of the very partial lineups I posted. These people aren't actually the power structure so they get a semi-free pass.

Well, so far CBS, NBC, CNN, everybody has ignored and/or failed to report Kerry's "ooopsie" moment.

I think that's about to end:

DRUDGE REPORT
FLASH: McCain Calls On Kerry To Apologize
Tue Oct 31 2006 11:43:14 ET


Senator Kerry owes an apology to the many thousands of Americans serving in Iraq, who answered their country's call because they are patriots and not because of any deficiencies in their education. Americans from all backgrounds, well off and less fortunate, with high school diplomas and graduate degrees, take seriously their duty to our country, and risk their lives today to defend the rest of us in Iraq, Afghanistan, and elsewhere.

Military mags have picked it up now too:

ARMY TIMES and NAVY TIMES

By Rick Maze
Staff writer


Vietnam veteran and former Democratic presidential candidate Sen. John Kerry, D-Mass., warned a college audience in California that if they didn’t get a good college education, they could end up in Iraq, according to news reports.

Interesting to watch how this story is slowly percolating and building this morning on the Internet. Still nothing on CBS, MSNBC, CNN or FOX.

YouTube.

I am disappoited in Bush in so many ways.

Kerry was the only option.

I shutter to think what things would be like
if that baffoon would have won.

The guy is a charleton, a gigilo, and like
Boortz calls him, "a french poodle", a rich
womans pet.

God....please give us REAL choices in 08.

Shuttering or shuddering, I think that's a bogus argument and one that was made about Al Gore and Bob Dole before him. Things would pretty much be the same as they always were except we'd probably not be at war with Iraq at the moment. Otherwise, I doubt there'd be much difference. JMO

Does anybody know the rest of what he said? It's clear the video cuts off in the middle of his statement and all the articles end the quote on the word "Iraq".

I mean, clearly this sounds bad but I'm wondering if we're not on the cusp of another "our troops terrorizing Iraqi's" statement here where it sounds much worst without the rest of the statement.

Kerry's camp has issued a clarification. The remark was intended as a Bush-bashing, but it came out...er...wrong.

McCain is holding a press conference at 1 p.m. Eastern to formally call Kerry down.

Kerry's statement is seething:

October 31, 2006
Statement of John Kerry Responding to Republican Distortions, Pathetic Tony Snow Diversions and Distractions


&#8220;If anyone thinks a veteran would criticize the more than 140,000 heroes serving in Iraq and not the president who got us stuck there, they're crazy. This is the classic G.O.P. playbook. I&#8217;m sick and tired of these despicable Republican attacks that always seem to come from those who never can be found to serve in war, but love to attack those who did.

I&#8217;m not going to be lectured by a stuffed suit White House mouthpiece standing behind a podium, or doughy Rush Limbaugh, who no doubt today will take a break from belittling Michael J. Fox&#8217;s Parkinson&#8217;s disease to start lying about me just as they have lied about Iraq. It disgusts me that these Republican hacks, who have never worn the uniform of our country lie and distort so blatantly and carelessly about those who have."
