The Ray Nagin Dumbass Award* Goes to...

John Kerry.

I'm not going to delve into my feelings on the matter of what I think of the Iraqi war and Bush and the politics therein. However, what John Kerry said about our military is just plain bad. He's been trying to spin his remarks since then, and failing miserably. Nothing he can say can change the fact that he is now the country's biggest douchebag.

"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."

Does he mean to say that all the men and women who are over in Iraq right now are stupid? That would rather be lazy dumbasses than be smart? That those who have died had lofty goals of asking, "Do you want fries with that?" after their tour in Iraq?? Does he think that those who are in Iraq right now sit around and think they can't do any better in life??

Not everyone was born with a silver spoon up their ass. Not everyone gets to go to an Ivy League college, paid for by a wealthy aunt. Not everyone got to spend their summers in France. Not everyone got to marry the Queen of Ketchup.

(Did you know his family made their fortune in opium? Me neither.)

I know this may be a foreign concept to John Kerry, but a lot of people enter into the military so they have the means to go to college. There is no shame in being in the military. Being in the military does not translate into "failure in life".

John Kerry...you are an asshole, so I am bestowing the Ray Nagin Dumbass Award upon you.

If only stupid people go to Iraq, I would think that you had your air booked months ago.

(*The Ray Nagin Dumbass Award is an award given to those in the public eye who do or say stupid things that indicate their IQ is that of a sponge.)

I've heard that he meant to say "...you get us stuck in Iraq." But that's still not very funny. It'd be more of a jab at Bush, but it's a stupid one.

Politicians should just stick to making jokes about way off-topic things like poo and their incredibly bad performance issues that happened the first time they tried to have sex. That'd go over much better, I'd think.

I don't ever want the image of John Kerry naked in my head again.

I agree with Faith. I can kinda believe that he was trying to poke dubya in the eye.

But when he came back swinging and refusing to apologize, yadda, yadda, yadda...

There comes a time when your only sensible course of action is to just shut the fuck up.

Kerry is notorious for pandering to whatever crowd he happens to be in front of. Considering he was standing in front of a group of college students, I'm still inclined to believe it was an insult to military.

Although I am willing to give him a small benefit of a doubt, I still think he's an asshat.
