Mark Steyn on John Kerry

Mark Steyn is such a clever, witty writer, I don't know how he manages to be as prolific as he is.

One of his best points: "Whatever he may or may not have intended...what Kerry said fits what too many upscale Dems believe: that America's soldiers are only there because they're too poor and too ill-educated to know any better. That's what they mean when they say 'we support our troops' – they support them as victims, as children, as potential welfare recipients, but they don't support them as warriors, and they don't support the mission."


And the conclusion: "The Left still doesn't understand that it's the soldier who guarantees every other profession – the defeatist New York Times journalist, the anti-American college professor, the insurgent-video-of-the-day host at CNN, the hollow, preening blowhard senator. Kerry's gaffe isn't about one maladroit Marie Antoinette of the Senate but a glimpse into the mindset of too many Americans."

As always with Mr. Steyn, it's worthwhile to read every paragraph of his column.

Well, if Kerry had been running for office in this election ... he would have lost.
