INDIANAPOLIS, Oct. 31 /U.S. Newswire/ -- The National Commander of The American Legion called on Sen. John Kerry to apologize for suggesting that American troops in Iraq are uneducated.
"As a constituent of Senator Kerry's I am disappointed. As leader of The American Legion, I am outraged," said National Commander Paul A. Morin. "A generation ago, Sen. Kerry slandered his comrades in Vietnam by saying that they were rapists and murderers. It wasn't true then and his warped view of today's heroes isn't true now."
While addressing a group of college students at a campaign rally in Pasadena, CA., Monday, Kerry suggested that they receive an education or "if you don't, you'll get stuck in Iraq."
"While The American Legion shares the senator's appreciation for education, the troops in Iraq represent the most sophisticated, technologically superior military that the world has ever seen," Morin said.

yeah, kinda like standing in the middle of a circle of gasoline, and dropping a match!

Oh, no doubt about that! "College professors and campus elitists" are stupider than my garage door when it comes to real life and the real world.
You are a despicable piece of sh*t, Senator Kerry.
''I always told my Dad that D stood for distinction," Kerry said yesterday in a written response to questions, noting that he has previously acknowledged that he spent a lot of time learning to fly instead of focusing on his studies.
That's an insult to despicable pieces of sh*t.
Kerry's inherent nature -- Just a matter of a dog being a dog. [no offense intended to pet lovers intended]
I hope they don't let him off the hook with a non-apology-apology.
Way to twist the knife after sticking it in. This guy's great!
An apology from this worthless piece of crap would be absolutely meaningless. His entire life he's been letting everyone know how he really feels for goodness sake. An apology would be be nothing more than a lie.
Now all we need to come out is the Swift Boat Guys to say "I told you so!"
---an avalanche is mounting.........I can only hope skerry makes this worse and very soon with yet another pompous statement.
