Hideous Skull-Faced Monster Arises to Insult Troops on Halloween

Yes, it's true folks, just in time for All-Hallow's Eve, the Creature from the Swiftboat Lagoon rose up and delivered a flesh-tingling (and, I hope, career ending) insult to those who serve in Iraq. This creature is known to be mad and often ignore the entreaties of the party that spawned him. Here's what he said:

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

Here's the YouTube video of him saying it
Apparently no intelligent person would deign to join the miltary. I've been regarded as reasonably intelligent and made a conscious choice to serve my country, which I did on active duty for twenty-one years.

Skeletor has apparently refused to apologize:

Kerry, who is considering another run for the White House in 2008, angrily fired back.

His statement called Republicans "assorted right-wing nut jobs."

And at a hastily arranged news conference in Seattle, Kerry said: "I apologize to no one for my criticism of the president and of his broken policy."

Kerry said the comment in question was "a botched joke about the president and the president's people, not about the troops ... and they know that's what I was talking about."

Yes, Skeletor, we know exactly to whom you were talking. And we will not forget it.
