Catch & Kerry: Clean ‘em and fry ‘em

I ran across this first one at the CornBeltwayBoys blog concerning John Kerry, and it’s now making the rounds on the ‘net. 

First the troops clean ’em…

And cartoonist Michael Ramirez fries ’em…


Kerry “botched joke/lobotomy” update: John Kerry has released a statement on his website, and guess what? It turns out that we were all too idiotic to properly interpret his comments — not just the troops.

Here’s part of what Kerry wrote:

I sincerely regret that my words were misinterpreted to wrongly imply anything negative about those in uniform, and I personally apologize to any service member, family member, or American who was offended.

Nice touch. “I’m sorry you were too stupid to interpret my words the way I intended, and the way I intended was exactly what I said, except different and with some sort of punchline.”

He once again blamed his “poorly stated joke” for the fact that we were too simple-minded to grasp the proper interpretation. Kerry could end this once and for all by simply posting what the joke was supposed to be, and I’m sure he will — as soon as somebody makes one up for him.
