Oh for crumâ€™s sake, people. It was a joke! â€œIf you
donâ€™t study in school youâ€™ll end up getting stuck in
Iraq.â€ Get it? LIKE THE PRESIDENT! He canâ€™t get out of
Iraq. He didnâ€™t study. Heâ€™s stuck. John Kerry was
talking about George Bush. He wasnâ€™t talking about our
troops. John Kerry was a troop. Anybody who canâ€™t
figure that out is either a cynical oaf hiding their
scurrilous ass behind the troops or pretending theyâ€™re
dumber than they already are, and from all
appearances, the President falls into one of those
categories, and if its the latter, thatâ€™s a very scary
Right before Senator John Kerry blew the joke about how dumb people get stuck in Iraq, he blew another about how President Bush comes from the state of Texas but now lives in the state of denial. See, its a pattern. Thatâ€™s ostensibly a joke too. Didnâ€™t get much of a laugh on that one either. In the â€œstuck in Iraqâ€ joke, he left out the word â€œus.â€ it was supposed to be â€œyouâ€™ll end up getting US stuck in Iraq,â€ which is funnier on paper especially if you read the â€œusâ€ as â€œU.S.â€ making it work on a couple of different levels.
Both of which are way beyond the cognitive range of most college students in Pasadena. Which is why only dogs think John Kerry is funny.
