Appearing in Pasadena on behalf of California gubernatorial candidate Phil Angelides, Kerry quipped to a crowd of students: "You know, education - if you make the most of it - you study hard, you do your homework and you make an effort to be smart, you can do well. If you don't, you get stuck in Iraq."
That's right. Watch out kids, and don't go into the army, or a US senator will blame you for being un-educated... Sheesh.
I'm waiting to hear the explanation: "Actually, I respect our troops. I respected them before I insulted them."
