Take your neo-con bullshit and stuff it up where the sun
Wow..!! Looks like my sig really got someone's goat...
"53% of our children don't graduate from high school." -
John Kerry. Actual stat according to the census bureau is
14%, but what's 39% among friends?
I did a google search on this this but couldn't find it. Do you
have the source of Kerry's quote?
New Study Shows John Kerry Knows Ass From Hole In The Ground 53% Of The Time
"Now, that's definitely my ass. No? Are you sure?"
I think it must be a lot less:
Sen. John Kerry claimed this morning on NBC TODAY that only 53% of
America's children graduate from high school [actually, he claims that only
47% graduate - see update below] -- a claim that raised eyebrows in the NBC
KERRY: "That's terrific. But 53 percent of our children don't graduate
from high school. Kids don't have after-school programs... He didn't ask
America to sacrifice anything to achieve great goals and the biggest
example is making the tax cut permanent for the wealthiest people in
America. The average American struggles to find time to take carry of
families, working two or three jobs... It's a disgrace. He did not tell the
real state of the union."
Kerry's 53% claim conflicts with a recent press release from the U.S.
Census Bureau: "High School Graduation Rates Reach All-Time High"
And the Census Bureau's own website states: 85.9 Percent Of Americans
Aged 20-24 Are High School Graduates. (U.S. Census Bureau Website,
www.census.gov , Accessed 2/1/06)
So, now it's time to play one of John Kerry's favorite games: "What I meant
to say was..."
Senator John Kerry (D-MA) tosses around "the old pig skin" as members of the
local fire department look on.
UPDATE: Reader Pookie points out a mistake in the wording of the first
paragraph of the Drudge article - Kerry says that 53% of "our children"
don't graduate from high school. So, he's actually claiming that only 47%
graduate. My apologies to the senator. Still, I'll give him the benefit of
a doubt and say that he knows his ass from a hole in the ground as much as
53% of the time.
UPDATE II: Flip at Suitably Flip has the real figures.
UPDATE III: Michelle Malkin has the video
