A few Democratic candidates joined Republicans Wednesday in pressing John Kerry to apologize for a comment critics said appeared disrespectful of U.S. troops as several Kerry campaign appearances were canceled.
"Whatever the intent, Senator Kerry was wrong to say what he said," said Democratic Rep. Harold Ford Jr., running for Senate in Tennessee.
"Sen. Kerry's remarks were poorly worded and just plain stupid," said Montana Senate President Jon Tester, a Democrat trying to unseat GOP Sen. Conrad Burns . "He owes our troops and their families an apology." [emphasis mine]
If this is how they read and understand news stories, how can they possibly read and understand complicated legislation?
That said, why are they making sure this little dust-up stays in the news? Stupidity...that's the only explanation.
