Troops in Iraq snub John Kerry

I guess the troops didn't appreciate his little "joke" about their intelligence.

More details from Michelle Malkin: Lonely, I'm Mr. Lonely.

A portion of her excerpt from Ben of Mesopotamia's blog:

[...] Finally, the next morning, Senator Kerry ate chow at the Dining Facility. Normally when a Senator/Representative visits, he is joined by a contingent of soldiers/Marines/airmen from his home state. Despite the fact that the MP unit responsible for Green Zone security is an Army Reserve unit from Massachusetts, not a single soldier went to sit with him. (By contrast, Bill O'Reilly, host of that terrible shoutfest on Fox, had over 400 soldiers waiting in line to meet him on Saturday).

The day before, Kerry held a press conference there, and none of the MSM showed up. Even they are shunning him.

Can the Democrats seriously be thinking of running Kerry again as a presidental candidate? It would seem to me that they ought be afraid of getting trapped in John Kerry's mouth.

12/06/07 CORRECTION: There has been some verification that Kerry sought out an empty table intentionally, so that he could talk to reporters privately. So that may be true of this photo. Yet there are also reports that many soldiers declined to sit with or meet with him; that he's not been too popular. Both could be true, you decide.

LOL--I heard about this yesterday!! Somehow if the entire military hates your guts I don't think you have much of a prayer at becoming Commander in Chief!!

If they run him again as a presidential candidate, I'll be amazed.
