Idiot and a Cliche

John Kerry flooded my inbox again today. Along with the Deaniacs, John just keeps sending nastier and nastier emails, I suppose attempting to ignite his slouching base.

In any case, here are some examples of John's increasingly nasty rhetoric:

"...the failed policies, botched strategies, and mind-boggling incompetence of the Bush White House that have squandered America's treasure, kept Osama Bin Laden on the loose, and cost the lives and limbs of our brave young people."

"...shameless pre-election fear-mongering..."

Squandered America's treasure? That bizarre eighteenth-century pirate statement is enough for a blog post of its own, but I digress...

The point of this post, and me calling John Kerry and "idiot," is because of his failure to understand the English language:

Dear Friend,

People who live in white houses shouldn't throw stones.

Indeed. And I would say that idiots should not use a cliche they don't understand. The phrase, "People who live in glass houses shouldn't throw stones" is a cliche that clearly means people who are guilty of an offense should not attempt to blame others for the same or a similar offense. In this way, John Kerry is saying that Bush should not blame the Democrats for something he himself does.

The only problem is, this email has nothing to do with that.

The email is all about accusing the President of using terrorism as a political advantage. John is also voicing his support for a few Democratic Senate contenders. He is not, however, accusing the President of "throwing stones" for something which he is also guilty of. It seems that John's "C" average at Yale is coming through.
