Education

OPEN MOUTH, INSERT FOOT...

Mr. Lawrence of Get Lost, Mr. Chips, succinctly explains his frustration with Sen. John Kerry’s recent comments about education and Iraq. Kerry’s remark:

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. If you don't, you get stuck in Iraq."

And Mr. Lawrence’s thoughts:

Can this guy do anything right? I'm glad I voted for him - 'lesser evilism' and all that business - but one thing the Democrats never seem to realize is that they're not very good at fighting the War of Words. The Republicans are masterful at phrasing and accusations and ad hominem attacks. I agree - to a degree - with Mr. Kerry's statement above, but there were 99 other ways of saying it and explaining it further (Kerry treats it like it's a black and white issue ... like only 'dumb kids' are in Iraq, which is lunacy).
