Kerry's spokeswoman now tells The Sleuth the senator really didn't mean what he said, though his clarification would hardly qualify as an apology.
"We stand corrected, the truth is every Democrat hopes Governor Palin is in the public eye for a long, long time, especially on the 2012 presidential ballot," Kerry spokeswoman Jodi Seth says. "Lately it's been Vice President Cheney that everyone hopes would lose the cameras and go for a long leisurely hike on the Appalachian Trail. And good grief, if anyone thinks John Kerry is afraid of strong, smart women, they sure haven't met his brilliant wife and two independent daughters. It sounds like getting crushed these last two election cycles cost some of these Republicans their sense of humor."
So, you are admitting that Governor Palin is a "strong and smart woman"? The whole statement is a flip-flop. First they want Governor Palin to run for president (because she must be a "weak" candidate) and then they say she is a "strong and smart woman." Candidates who are "strong and smart" usually end up winning. Wow.
I think that the junior senator from Massachusetts may be requesting a purple heart (will he throw this one away too?) due to Governor Palin's witty response to his original joke. I think it may have drawn blood.
If liberals are so secure with their sense of humor, why do they always end up apologizing? Oh, that's right -- because their jokes are always tasteless and need clarification.
Governor Palin has a fine sense of humor. Kerry joked about her and she returned fire and her audience seemed to enjoy it tremendously.
You can learn something from Governor Palin in the way she treats and respects the military. The military has a great sense of humor, except when you do what Kerry did and trash them. However, I do not think that the military is too fond of trashing special needs children and talking about professional baseball players "knocking up" 14 year olds. Liberals always need to "explain" their humor after it backfires.
Update: Is Kerry the first "Palin Democrat?"
"We stand corrected, the truth is every Democrat hopes Governor Palin is in the public eye for a long, long time, especially on the 2012 presidential ballot," Kerry spokeswoman Jodi Seth says.
Democrats are already second guessing Obama and looking to change the party in the White House? (H/T Anonymoose)
