In 2004, the buffoons who ran the Democratic Party, and their voters in primary elections, gave us a political idiot named John Kerry and tried to convince us that he could be President.

Christ. John Kerry. I remember the laughable excuse for a Senator strutting onto the stage of the Democratic National Convention, snapping that ridiculous salute and announcing he was “reporting for duty.”

What he should have been reporting for was the psyche ward at Bellevue.

The incredibly stupid decision by Democrats to run John Kerry as their nominee in 2004 virtually guaranteed another four years of despotic rule by George W. Bush. Bush may well go down as the most corrupt President in U.S. history. He certainly is the most ignorant and the most devoid of morality.

Yet John Kerry might have even outstripped Bush when it came to stupidity.

On Monday, Kerry tried to tell a joke on the campaign trail. Kerry may be a clown but he should leave jokes to the late night talk show hosts. He’s a bad Senator and a crummy politician but he’s even worse as a comedian.

Speaking at Pasadena City College, Kerry said:

“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.”

How’s that again Senator? You apparently meant to jab Bush for his lack of education and knowledge but the way you said it sounded more like an attack on the troops serving in the debacle called Iraq.

Kerry’s office quickly sent out a “clarification,” saying the Senator did not stick to his prepared text and was supposed to add “just ask President Bush” to the end of the statement.

Let’s see. A man who claimed he could be President can’t even read the lines of his speech correctly and fails to deliver the punch line to a joke that is supposed to be the major focus of that speech?

And this clown wanted to be the leader of the free world?

There’s no doubt George W. Bush is a blithering idiot who murders the English language just about every time he opens his mouth. He lies, he cheats and he makes illegal and immoral decisions that cost brave American men and women their lives.

But John Kerry is no less a fool. His many missteps in the 2004 Presidential election gives political science professors endless fodder for classes on how to blow an election. His stupidity this week created a environment that, for a day or two at least, allowed Republicans to divert attention away from the real issues of the campaign.

Thank God this moron never became President.
