John Fredo Kerry Blames Stupid Voters For Democrats’ Pending Doom

Fredo is on a roll.  First he calls the Tea Party and Republicans “extremists” in his lame Delawow! fund raising email,  then he turns around and implores the very same people he insulted to support the doomed Disclose Act. Now he’s blaming the uninformed rubes of the electorate for his party’s epic failures.  Not exactly a winning strategy, but nobody ever called Fredo the sharpest knife in the drawer.

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.

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.

Kerry made the remarks on voters following questions about U.S. Rep Barney Frank’s re-election campaign and queries about securing federal funding for the Hub hospital.

“I think a lot of the anger today – while it’s appropriate because Washington is broken – is not directed at the right people,” said Kerry. “Barney is prepared, as others are, to explain what we’re doing. I think when people hear the facts and they see what we’re doing, it frankly makes sense.”

In the interview, Kerry added that voters should be mad at stonewalling Republicans and “big money” in politics instead, referring to a bill blocked by Republicans Thursday that would reveal corporate and union leaders who fund big-bucks political ads.

He went on to blame the legislative logjam in Washington, D.C., for fewer federal dollars sent to the state.

Keep talking, Fredo.  Pretty please!

Scott Brown Will Vote No On Disclose Act, John Fredo Kerry Seethes; Update: Dems Fail To Get 60 Votes Needed For Cloture

Scroll for updates.

Yesterday, Scott Brown announced he would vote against the Democrats’ thinly veiled attempt to influence the midterm elections in the name of the Disclose Act.  John Kerry, the Fredo Corleone of the Massachusetts Senate delegation,  begged the Tea Party and GOP to go along with the scam.

“In the year of the Tea Party, when the Tea Party is asking for accountability and the Tea Party is asking for sunshine and they want reform, I’d like to hear the Tea Party stand up today and say, ‘Republicans ought to vote overwhelmingly to have sunshine shine in on the funding process of our campaigns,’” Kerry said in a speech on the Senate floor. “I would think that the Tea Party ought to be excoriated over the notion that a corporation has been given the same rights as the Constitution gives to an individual.”

Senator Scott Brown criticized the bill, and Democrats for trying to move forward with it.

“Americans, especially those looking for work, want this Congress and this administration focused on job creation and getting the economy back on track,” the Massachusetts Republican said in a statement. “Putting people back to work should be our number one priority, not pushing through a wildly unpopular campaign bill that gives a tactical advantage to the majority party in future elections.”

Poor Fredo.  Michael has spoken.  Now go entertain some of your senator friends in Cuba.

Update:  Disclose Is Dead…for now.  Even the Maine Twins saw this bill for what it is.
