Okay, there are some times
when duct tape comes in handy...

But I think here was a missed opportunity. Instead of calling it a botched joke, Kerry could have made this about the economy, stupid. Especially when the Wall Freep Journal has a page one article this morning headed "Bush Gains Ground on Economy, But Iraq Still Tops Voters' Agenda". Huh?

Oh yeah. "Mr." Bush is "buoyed by a rising stock market and falling gasoline prices."

Huh? Exxon Mobil took the money and ran, right on GOP schedule.

Kerry could have said,

Yeah, "Mr." President, I meant what I said. Undereducated, unskilled young people in this country have zero opportunities for job training, learning a trade. No Child Left Behind is a joke. In an effort to turn everyone into a scholar, you have forced school systems around the country to scrap alternative diplomas and VoTech programs, and therefore you have left those who are not scholars with few employment alternatives but to join the military. And you are also spending our children's future on this stupid war, which is based on your WMD lies. You have also left the "Homeland" at risk by stripping National Guard troops from the states to supply this war with soldiers. As one reservist put it, "one weekend a month my ass."

Don't tell me I should go to work for those people. It's too late for John Kerry to start telling the truth with passion. He should take his wife's money, start his own damn global initiative, and do good for the rest of his life. He ain't making no difference here, 'cept to give Tony Snow an undeserved distractor.


  1. NPR reported this morning that Kerry had deviated from a prepared script, which originally had him saying something to the effect that "If you don't hard hard and study hard blah blah blah, you'll end up leading us into a screwed up war in Iraq."

    In other words, study hard or you'll be as stome-cold stupid as our president is.

    Which is a good point.

    Lesson for Kerry: Stick to the script. 'Cause you ain't all that brilliant of a bulb, either, bub.

  2. i hope he just shuts up til after the elections.

  3. There are a good dozen more Dem leaders that should take early retirement.

  4. This was my featured post over at BIO today. I think I tore the scab off, there were a lot of comments.

  5. I'm no Bush fan, but being old enough to remember Vietnam this only showed me Kerry is out of touch with modern times. During Vietnam soldiers were mostly drafted. Good grades got you into college and earned you the coveted draft defferment. Bad grades got you a ticket to Nam. Someone should remind Mr. Kerry these soldiers volunteered, many after 911 out of a sense of patriotism. As screwy as our reasons were for invading Iraq the soldiers are patriotic volunteers, many who deferred college out of a desire to serve.
    Blue is right, He should take his wife's money, start his own damn global initiative.
    The only joke Kerry is proving is that his political career is done.

  6. He cancelled the rest of his campaign stops for other Dem candidates. He realized he became the issue... again.

  7. I agree 100%, BG. He could've snatched victory out of the jaws of defeat and brough attention to the despicable practices of this administration and the DoD.

  8. Y'all haven't read the press release from a few days ago where he said:

    "I’m not going to be lectured by a stuffed suit White House mouthpiece standing behind a podium, or doughy Rush Limbaugh, who no doubt today will take a break from belittling Michael J. Fox’s Parkinson’s disease to start lying about me just as they have lied about Iraq. It disgusts me that these Republican hacks, who have never worn the uniform of our country lie and distort so blatantly and carelessly about those who have."

    It's not surprising that that statement didn't get carried very far.

    At least Kerry didn't cry in the well of the Senate like Durban did.

  9. Well said. I am actually glad he said this because at least we won't have him to worry about next presidential election.

    Could it be that this "botch" was actually an effort to help out his fellow bonesman? Not sayin'; just sayin'.


I really look forward to hearing what you have to say. I do moderate comments, but non-spam comments will take less than 24 hours to appear... Thanks!
