Political Fallout

So, Bush and Kerry are at it again. After John Kerry fired a bunch of one liners the entire GOP is up in arms and ready to tar and feather the Senator. Can't anyone take a joke anymore? What ever happened to free speech?
I can hardly wait to see what happens next. I appreciate what Kerry had to say about the state of our country. I understood completely when he made fun of Bush, "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."
With all of the resources at his fingertips our President should be making informed decisions about foreign and domestic policies. There are men and women out there that have a better understanding of how to deal with, and achieve diplomatic relationships with different cultures that are different from ours. These people are paid to advise and counsel our leaders. It is up to our leaders to listen.
Bush's response was the classic gibberish that we have been laughing at for six years now, "The members of the United States military are plenty smart and they are plenty brave, and the senator from Massachusetts owes them an apology," said Bush.
I have served in the military and I know that we have intelligent and brave men and women serving our country. Bush's quote just further supported Kerry's joke, however "botched" it may have seemed to the press and everyone else who found it objectionable
