Kerry thinks, like I used to until recently, of the military as a last resort for those who failed at everything else. He has always looked down his nose at everyone else, including while he served, so it does not surprise me for him to believe he is above the average intelligence of the military. I was wrong in my belief and realized that after September 11th.
Those who serve in the military are people who put country above all else and that is not a reflection of their success or intelligence. The truth is that I could not handle the military and I know it. I am also very thankful to every single person who has volunteered to protect my pacifist derriere. I realize I can be a pacifist because there are those willing to die for me.
Kerry screwed up royally yesterday in his speech at Pasadena City College. He must have a foot fetish or something the way he jammed it in his mouth. He got carried away with his elitist attitude while speaking to a lowly community college and let slip his belief that the military are a lower class than he is.
I cannot say I am unhappy about this turn of events either to be honest. I would love the nationally known names from both parties to retire in disgrace and let the Congress return to serving those it was intended to serve: the people. Party over country is my definition of treason.
