John Kerry: Intellectualoid

Among the more popular strategems of the Democrat Party is the notion that Conservatives and/or Republicans --- and Republican Presidents particularly --- aren't very smart. Ann Coulter quantifies this intellectualoid arrogance in her book Slander. And while one might have thought that our friends on the Left would have realized that this smug, self-satisfied attitude doesn't particularly resonate well with voters (certainly, it's not likely to persuade self-identified Conservatives or Republicans), they just keep it up. It's a vanity gone wild.

Witness the Poodle's (AKA John Kerry) most recent and prominent contribution to the public discourse:
“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, you can do well. And if you don’t you get stuck in Iraq.”
You can watch the video here.

Now, I have no doubt that the Poodle and/or his apologists will say that he wasn't attacking those who serve, save for President Bush. They will probably say that he was simply belittling the President for his well-known diminished intellectual ability and the fact that his dismal academic record is one reason why American troops are in Iraq. Of course, they will be conceding sub silentio the Poodle's imprecision in the use of the English language --- perhaps he would have been more precise in French --- but never mind that.

Lest we not forget, however, the Poodle's GPA at Yale was one point lower than the President's.

I am so glad you referred to Kerry as the "Poodle". It suits him well. I have been having difficulty posting about the maroon this evening, not wanting to use profane language you know.
Poodle will do. Thanks.

Well, Flora, he's French, and he's kept by rich women. Hence, "the Poodle."
