John Kerry, spokesman for the new Democratic Party, and sometimes Senator from Ted Kennedy’s state, has a few choice words for you dummies, via The Boston Herald:

A testy U.S. Sen. John F. Kerry yesterday blamed clueless voters with short attention spans for the uphill battle beleaguered Democrats are facing against Republicans across the nation.

“We have an electorate that doesn’t always pay that much attention to what’s going on so people are influenced by a simple slogan rather than the facts or the truth or what’s happening,” Kerry told reporters after touring the Boston Medical Center yesterday.

Don’t worry, I reported for duty to prevent Kerry from swift boating the folks:

Conservative political blogger William Jacobson, who writes Legal Insurrection, immediately pounced on Kerry’s comments, saying that attitude is why voters are looking to shake up Capitol Hill by electing upstart candidates such as U.S. Sen. Scott Brown.

“It just continues the Democrats’ theme that the reason people are upset is because they don’t understand. They’re not smart enough. That sort of rhetoric just gets people even more upset,” said Jacobson

Do I get a medal for that?

There’s more at Legal Insurrection, where the comments are worth reading, too, especially from the recovering Liberals.

At MichelleMalkin.com, Doug Powers writes, “John Kerry Explains Dem Woes: Voters are Stupid”:

…John Kerry has a sinking feeling about the election in November, so he’s trying a new tactic to sway people to vote Democrat: Insulting their intelligence…Didn’t he say the same about soldiers? [November 2006]

Neo-neocon has this:

Kerry: the electorate’s too stupid and uninformed to understand…

…and appreciate how wonderful the Democrats are.

And we were, fortunately, just too stupid and uninformed to understand your overwhelming superiority back in 2004.

I like the first comment to the article, which goes like this:

Not all of us are bright enough to be C students at Yale, John. Nor are we smart enough to marry a deceased colleague’s billionaire widow. Please excuse us for being so dumb.

And, from HotAir.com, “John Kerry: I wish these voters would pay more attention”

…A testy U.S. Sen. John F. Kerry yesterday blamed clueless voters with short attention spans for the uphill battle beleaguered Democrats are facing against Republicans across the nation.

“We have an electorate that doesn’t always pay that much attention to what’s going on so people are influenced by a simple slogan rather than the facts or the truth or what’s happening,” Kerry told reporters after touring the Boston Medical Center yesterday…

Democratic consultant Phil Johnston, former chairman of the state party, jumped to Kerry’s defense, saying, “That’s absurd. He’s just making the point that people have real lives to lead and most people are not spending a lot of time worrying about politics, particularly in a tough economy. I’ve known John Kerry for 35 years and he doesn’t look down on people.”…

But at CAJ we would disagree with Phil Johnston. There are many in the political elite who despise the average American and who think we are “to stoopid”:

Obama czar Cass Sunstein says we’re too dumb to make right choices

In a stunning insult to all American ciitizens, except for the tiny minority in the elite ruling class, Obama czar Cass Sunstein stated that we are too dumb to make ‘right choices.’

Sunstein claims that there is too much Homer Simpson in the average citizen which prevents them from making right choices on things such as food, in addition to the fact that the ‘Homer Simpson’ in us makes us easily manipulated by the progressive elitists.

Said Sunstein:

“We think that, as my co-author, Thaler and I, that there’s a little Homer Simpson in all of us. Sometimes we have self-control problems, sometimes we’re impulsive and that in these circumstances, both private and public institutions, without coercing, can make our lives a lot better.

“Once we know that people are human and have some Homer Simpson in them, then there’s a lot that can be done to manipulate them.”… [Emphasis CAJ]

Update: From Babalu, “We ARE paying attention, John…”
