Poor John Kerry. It’s not like every Democrat, including the president and David Axelrod, hasn’t said pretty much the same thing. But it’s just so darn easy to pick on the multi-millionaire whose yacht-docking tax scam went awry. Yesterday he pronounced :
A testy U.S. Sen. John F. Kerry yesterday blamed clueless voters with short attention spans for the uphill battle beleaguered Democrats are facing against Republicans across the nation. “We have an electorate that doesn’t always pay that much attention to what’s going on so people are influenced by a simple slogan rather than the facts or the truth or what’s happening,” Kerry told reporters after touring the Boston Medical Center yesterday.
Then he went on to clarify that it really is the Republicans’ fault. (“Kerry added that voters should be mad at stonewalling Republicans and ‘big money’ in politics instead, referring to a bill blocked by Republicans Thursday that would reveal corporate and union leaders who fund big-bucks political ads.”)
What’s not to like about a campaign based on insulting the voters and blaming the minority party?
