John Derbyshire On John Kerry
John Kerry is awful, and anything we can do further to degrade his political prospects is worth doing. But really, I saw a clip of him making the much-deplored remark, and it was obvious that the dimwit in Iraq that he referred to was George W. Bush, not the American soldier. It was a dumb joke badly delivered, but his meaning was plain. My pleasure in watching JK squirm is just as great as any other conservativeÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢s, but something is owed to honesty. ThereÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢s a lot of fake outrage going round here.
