CONCORD, N.H. – Two days after Senator John Kerry made a remark about the intelligence of American soldiers he said was a botched joke, he has begun to cancel events around the country where he was to help Congressional candidates.
One of those events was a yet-to-be announced appearance in New Hampshire. Kerry’s staff canceled an event planned for Sunday in Nashua meant to help Congressional candidate Paul Hodes.
On Monday Kerry told an audience of college students to study and make good grades or you “get stuck in Iraq."
Yesterday, Kerry refused to apologize, only to do so on talk radio today.
Kerry’s cancellation of events through the rest of the week came a day after one candidate for the House in Iowa cancelled a joint appearance with him.
