An email from Iraq…….

Here’s something funny. You know how Kerry came over to Iraq to see
the troops? Supposedly. Well, nobody wanted to see him, so he went to see the
British down south. Pretty funny. What does he expect.


Well, according to some political observers Kerry’s trip won’t help his presidential hopes. There is really nothing the Sad Sack can do at this point except cover himself with ketchup and roll up in a bun. Buh Bye chump.


Some political observers say Sen. John Kerry’s presidential dreams were dashed months ago and his trip to terrorist-supporting Syria this week won’t do anything to change that.

Before Kerry’s so-called botched joke, taken by many as an insult to American troops, he was a second-tier presidential contender, but the aftermath has knocked him out of the race for good, said Todd Domke, a Massachusetts GOP political strategist.

“I don’t think people take him seriously enough to be upset about it,” Domke said.

“It doesn’t really trigger more indignation because most people in the political world no longer consider him a serious player. No one really cares what he does.”

Larry J. Sabato, a University of Virginia political science professor who runs the school’s Center for Politics, said Kerry is no longer a contender.

“It doesn’t matter,” he said. “He joked himself out of the contest. He can meet with every dictator in the world and it won’t make any difference.”


Jeeze. How many times do we have to say, it wasn’t a botched joke. Kerry meant what he said and got caught on camera saying it. Anyway, the troops didn’t take it as a joke.

This Massachusetts paper writes that Kerry and his fellow Democrat Senators are sending the wrong message to Syria.
