…In the interest of full disclosure, I’m going to reveal that I voted for John Kerry two times in 2004; first as a delegate at the Democratic National Convention, and second as a Georgia voter in the November General Election.
Last night, I had a long conversation with my mother about Kerry’s “botched joke” and we both agreed that the junior Senator from Massachusetts put his foot in his mouth yet again. My mother, who voted for Kerry as well, said that John Kerry doesn’t know how to talk to the average American voter and that he proved that once again with his statements yesterday.
For the record, just like Zell Miller doesn’t speak for the Democratic Party neither does John Kerry. The statements that Kerry made are his and his alone, and they should not be interpreted to mean that he’s speaking for the vast majority of Democrats across the country.
John Kerry isn’t speaking for me; he’s speaking for himself; and the Democratic Party should not be forced to defend Sen. Kerry’s comments. That responsibility belongs to John Kerry.
