The forgotten victims

Now that the Kerry brouhaha is starting to settle down it time to shed some light on the actual victims of his thoughtless remarks.

It's plain to see, if you read his publicly released re-edit of his remarks that the group of people he was intending to insult were not the men and women in uniform, or even the President, at least not directly, but those poor downtrodden Yale and Harvard grads. You know the ones who only managed to get a undergrad degree and then a Masters. Those failures of the education system who don't even manage to stick around for a PhD.

How else can you interpret these words:
“Do you know where you end up if you don’t study, if you aren’t smart, if you’re intellectually lazy? You end up getting us stuck in a war in Iraq. Just ask President Bush.”
By holding President George Bush as an example of an intellectually lazy person I must say he is setting the bar for what he considers a success a little high for the average American, seeing he himself can't even meet it.

Bush not only beat Kerry's academic record during their respective times at Yale, but went on, as mentioned above, to get a Masters in Business Administration from the Harvard Business School, apparently, according to Kerry's world view, a feat on par with working at McDonald's.

Why does Kerry hate Ivy League grads so much? Perhaps it is just another example of his self-loathing making itself known. With all his attacks on Vietnam vets after spending 3 months in theater we know he has a history of it. I'm sure when his apology for this latest insult comes around he'll try and pass it off as a simple little Boston College/ Harvard rivalry, but by now we all know the true measure of the man.
