While campaigning in California, Kerry told a college crowd on Monday: "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."
Kerry later said:
"I make apologies to no one about my criticism of the president and his broken policy," Kerry said in a statement. "This This pathetic attempt to distort a botched joke about President Bush is a shameful effort to distract from a botched war."
Stop trying to be funny, John...
