Kerry Pulls a Bushism

The White House accused Sen John Kerry (D-MA) of insulting the troops when the Senator botched a joke about the White House's own failures.

The actual prepared statement read:

"I can't overstress the importance of a great education. 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.">
Good thing our President's eloquent speechifying style has never allowed anything like this to happen! (YouTube)

UPDATE: The GOP has a new web ad up attacking Sen Kerry's remarks. See it here.

UPDATE: CNN Political Ticker has notable quotes on the Kerry gaffe.

I LOVE the prepared statement version! Bush is such an idiot. Even with the Senator's reading error, which turned the statement into an insult of the troops into that of Bush, the Senator's not doing half the damage that Bush is doing by sending soldiers overseas to get killed for a stupid "cause".
