Kerry Gets Kicked in the Can (updated)

Hot Air » Lazy and uneducated photo of the day!

via Allah, Kerry offers–finally!–an incredibly lame apology that isn’t worth the paper it’s printed on:

As a combat veteran, I want to make it clear to anyone in uniform and to their loved ones: my poorly stated joke at a rally was not about, and never intended to refer to any troop.

I sincerely regret that my words were misinterpreted to wrongly imply anything negative about those in uniform, and I personally apologize to any service member, family member, or American who was offended.

It is clear the Republican Party would rather talk about anything but their failed security policy. I don’t want my verbal slip to be a diversion from the real issues. I will continue to fight for a change of course to provide real security for our country, and a winning strategy for our troops.

Sorry, Lurch, but it’s too little, and way to late. When it first hit the fan, you blamed it all on Tony Snow and (pre-emptively) Rush Limbaugh, and said that anyone who thought you were insulting America’s Armed Forces was crazy… even though you made your political bones slandering Vietnam-era soldiers. Next, you pimped the idea that you had merely misspoke a joke, and had a press flack say you meant to say “get us stuck in Iraq.” You then stood in front of the cameras and issued a press release in which you AGAIN claimed the problem was a contrivance concocted by the White House, when all you need to say was, “I’m sorry if any members of the American Armed Forces, their families or any other Americans took my statement as an insult to our brave and noble soldiers, sailors, airmen and Marines. I misspoke and apologize for any insult or injury my ill-chosen words may have caused. I am truly sorry.”

This crap would have ended right there and then, but you were too arrogant to realize the hole you had dug, and kept working the shovel.

Your next gambit was to have a press flack issue another “clarification” about your “botched joke,” this time saying you meant to say: “get us stuck in Iraq, like George Bush.” This morning, when your fellow Dems were dropping you like a hot turd, you called up Imus and continued sticking to your “botched joke” bullshit, and only apologized for botching the joke!

So now that you finally–on Wednesday afternoon–in a roundabout way said what any sane public figure (especially one holding the delusion of running for Prez again) would have said on Monday evening, only after realizing (or heard it screamed in your face) that you were tearing your whole fucking Party a new asshole by being such an obstinent git, sucking all the oxygen out the the news cycle by sticking to your “botched joke” bullshit, now want to apologize for it possibly being “misinterpreted”….

Shove it square up your dilletante, married rich dumb sonofabitch ass, skippy.
