The number one news story in the American media today is the controversy over the "botched joke" of John Kerry
. How he told a groups of students that they better study hard or else they might get stuck in Iraq. Kerry now says that it was really aimed at President Bush, not U.S. soldiers, but even if that's true, he formulated himself in a way which makes you believe he refers to soldiers.
What really surprises me about this mess is that Kerry haven't tried to get out of it by saying something like
: "I actually did try to imply the soldiers were well-educated before I tried to imply they were uneducated".
