Casey Defends Kerry

From the Morning Call :

U.S. Senate candidate Bob Casey Jr. today defended Sen. John Kerry over a botched joke that has prompted Republicans from President Bush down — and some Democrats — to demand an apology.

Kerry was to campaign for Casey in Pennsylvania today, but canceled the visit amid a continuing storm over whether Kerry was aiming his barb at President Bush, as Kerry contends, or at U.S. troops in Iraq, as Bush contends.

“John Kerry is not only a great leader for the Democratic party and a great U.S. senator, but he’s a patriot,” Casey said after a morning political rally in Allentown. “He said he botched a joke and I think that is the beginning and the end of it. He was talking about the president and I think he has every right to criticize this president.”
