Democrats often seem to take it for granted that they're smarter than the average red-state Republican. But according to failed presidential candidate John F. Kerry, it's Democrats, not Bush voters, who come up a bit short in the brains department.
Speaking to a voters' group in Massachusetts over the weekend, Kerry, having already blamed the media, offered up his latest excuse for losing the election: Democrats were tricked into not voting. The Associated Press reports:
Kerry also cited examples Sunday of how people were duped into not voting.Of course, Kerry offered no evidence that any such leaflets were handed out or phone calls made. But it was a good story, kind of like spending Christmas Eve in Cambodia.
"Leaflets are handed out saying Democrats vote on Wednesday, Republicans vote on Tuesday. People are told in telephone calls that if you've ever had a parking ticket, you're not allowed to vote," he said.
Or was it? Taking Kerry at his word, what he's saying is that Democrats those paragons of reason and wisdom, who know best what America needs either didn't know when to vote, or were tricked into staying home.
Not exactly a shining moment for people who think they're superior to the God-fearin' simple folk of Middle America.
I once said I'd stop mocking Kerry when he stops whining about losing the election. Looks like I won't have to quit any time soon.
