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.
