Kerry Can’t Apologize

If you take Kerry’s two statements — the written and unwritten — in their entirety, I really don’t think he can apologize at this point. I really do think he could have defused this whole thing, maybe not entirely, by simply saying “I botched the joke and I’m really sorry it sounded like I was diminishing the talent and work of our troops, something I would never do. I take a back seat to no one in my respect for blah blah blah…” But now he’s questioned the sanity, the integrity and the manliness of anybody who could have possibly taken him the wrong way. That means, in effect, that he’s calling all these servicemen who understandably took offense at the plain meaning of his words, wusses and nutters. That makes Kerry a tool of the first order. And, if he apologizes now, with some Gilda Radneresque “never mind,” it will once again reinforce his metaphysical toolishness. The guy thinks he can be president and he thinks he’s doing what  the “fighting Dem” base wants him to do. The problem is he has basically radiated himself with the isotope Asinine-90 and the only way the rest of his party can protect itself from radition poisoning is to sequester the guy in some lime-pit for 10,000 years until his asininity half-life deterioates to managable levels.
