You’ve already heard about Kerry’s imaginary country, so I won’t work that one to death. You’ve also heard that Kerry said (correctly) that Americans have the right to be stupid. But did you catch what he said immediately after that?
‘In America, you have a right to be stupid, if you want to be,’ he said. ‘And you have a right to be disconnected to somebody else if you want to be. And we tolerate that – we somehow make it through that.’ (Emphasis mine.)
Let me repeat: “[Y]ou have a right to be disconnected to somebody else if you want to be.” In what world does that even remotely make sense?
Bush pronounces “nuclear” the Southern way and is ridiculed for the next 12 years. Kerry says something completely meaningless and all you hear are crickets.
If you’d like to counteract that cricket sound, please feel free to share this poster on your blogs, in emails, and through Twitter and Facebook:
