John Kerry is refusing to apologize for his calling the GOP “the most crooked, you know, lying group I’ve ever seen.”. (Apparently the microphone didn’t pick up the next phrase – “since I looked in a mirror.”)
There’s nothing voters hate more than an asshole – and John Kerry is being an asshole. His lame excuse that he’s talking about the GOP “attack machine” is, well, a lame excuse. His comments were undignified, completely out of line, childish, and exactly what one has come to expect from the Democrats these days.
If I were Bush, I’d have that in a campaign ad tomorrow. Howard Dean plummeted because he couldn’t shut his yap with arrogant and ignorent comments – now it looks like John Kerry is making the same mistake.
