It is a little hard to believe considering the stupid things that continue to come out of his mouth.
James Taranto says it best:
John Kerry appeared yesterday at Pasadena City College to campaign for Phil Angelides, Democratic challenger to California's Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger. This is from the Pasadena Star-News's report on the event:
Kerry then told the students that if they were able to navigate the education system, they could get comfortable jobs--"If you don't, you get stuck in Iraq," he said to a mixture of laughter and gasps.
YouTube has video. It turns out "comfortable jobs" was a paraphrase; here is the direct quote:
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, uh, you can do well. If you don't, you get stuck in Iraq[**].
What a stirring call to self-service from this war hero and patriot.
* But he supports the troops!
** He might have added, "fighting in a war that I voted for."
