John Kerry supporting the troops, not the war:
“You know, education, if you make the most of it, if you study hard and you do your homework, and you make an effort to be smart, uh, you, you can do well. If you don’t, you get stuck in Iraq.”

In Dem stars rally in area for Angelides: Candidate touts his education reforms, the Whittier Daily News reports that the reaction to his comments was a
mixture of laughter and gasps.
Kerry was campaigning for California gubernatorial candidate Phil Angelides at Pasadena City College. Why anyone would let Kerry speak at one of their rallies is beyond me. (via Wizbang)
UPDATE: Actually, now that I think about it, I would guess that the education level in the US military is really quite high. I realize that standards have been lowered slightly of late, but all in all the number of degreed military personnel (if that’s how one would like to define “well-educated”) would probably surprise most people.
UPDATE 2: I hadn’t thought of this, but an update at Hot Air notes that Kerry had completed college (Yale, no less) and then joined the Navy. He is just so clueless it boggles the mind.
