Jerome Armstrong reports via TP that John Kerry apologised for his botched joke:
This morning on MSNBC, Sen. John Kerry (D-MA) apologized for his comments on Monday. "Of course I'm sorry for the botched joke," he said, calling his comments "pretty stupid."
End of story. Unless of course the Republicans really want to show everyone in the US that they are so desparate this is all they can campaign on - a cocked up joke which has been apologised for.
If they do continue to press this one, then perhaps there should be more circulation of George Bush's real intended joke about Iraq - click below. I see that Joe Lieberman particularly enjoyed the joking.
