With friends like these...

I couldn't believe the news this morning about John Kerry's bungled joke about education and the Iraq War. I'm not sure it would have been funny even if he hadn't bungled it. He told the joke while giving a campaign speach for Phil Angelides. Angelides has almost certainly lost the election against Arnold already but Kerry's joke sealed his fate. In a skit on The Daily Show, Jon Stewart and company were mocking the fact that the Democrats are ahead in the polls despite having no coherent strategy. There was a mock TV ad for a democratic candidate that literally featured no message. After seeing Kerry's botched joke on the news, I couldn't help thinking, we could probably win this thing if John Kerry would just shut the f@*k up.
