An excellent article from the Boston Herald's Jules Crittenden. I particularly liked the last paragraph:

John Kerry says he’s sorry he botched his joke about Iraq, and now he has apologized to anyone who was offended. He meant to make fun of the president of the United States, not the soldiers. It wasn’t very funny that way, either. The wags have already noted that Bush in fact performed better than Kerry at Yale. None of this would be more than a momentary embarrassment. But the botched joke we’re stuck with in Massachusetts, and the nation as a whole, is a backbencher’s lackluster career, which has been elevated far beyond his worth. And his failure to recognize that he is irrelevant on the national stage.
