Democratic party shuns Kerry (Caroline Daniel, November 1 2006, Financial Times)

Democrats on Wednesday moved swiftly to distance themselves from John Kerry’s “botched joke” that appeared to disparage US troops.

Three candidates have cancelled campaign events with the losing 2004 presidential candidate amid dismay that his verbal gaffe has handed Republicans a chance to paint the Democrat party as weak on national security.

In Iowa, Bruce Braley, a House candidate, cancelled a campaign event. Harold Ford, who faces a tight race for the Senate in Tennessee and has received $100,000 from Mr Kerry’s leadership political action committee, joined Republican calls for an apology.

“Whatever the intent, Senator Kerry was wrong to say what he said. He needs to apologise to our troops,” he said.

U.S. Sen. Carl Levin today called on Democratic colleague Sen. John Kerry to apologize for controversial comments about the troops in Iraq, calling them a "botched statement by a former candidate who doesn't represent this party."

Ever seen guys this eager to throw a colleague under the bus?

I wonder if the media has come up with a fresher nickname than "Live Shot".

Kerry should go to Switzerland for the next several months. He doesn't need to go to work, he doesn't need to (try to) read prepared statements, he doesn't need to pretend he is a candidate in 2008. Just go eat some cheese (and vindaloo, don't forget the vindaloo).

Why should he apologize? He meant what he said.

Trent Lott, but since Thurston Heinz-Kerry is a Dem, this is a first, isn't it?

Make room under the bus, Joe Lieberman. Kerry's coming!

I wonder if Commie Carl knows that Cabanaboy was talking about U.S. troops and not the "insurgents"?
