I'm a grown-up and have no illusions that politics are any more sanitary than most human endeavors. Is it just me or does the Democrat party seem to have the phoniest campaign and candidates for President in history?
Kerry is a total construct and doesn't really exist in this continuem and Edwards is totally unsuited for anything but ambulance chaser or TV preacher.
Their supporters in Hollywood, the so-called "Major Media" such as CBS and NY Times have thrown all connection with reality out the window. Hatred of Prsident Bush is all they have and it's like a religion.
It validates their dreadful beliefs and practices. With the many millions of people alive in this country there; by odds alone, has to be a certain amount of them that will be less than sane, honest, or moral. They then seek their own level and become one writhing, festering, puss filled lagoon of disgusting lies and deciet. Just my humble opinion.
He's the best they have, as decided by the hard core Democrats who voted in the primary elections across the country. His nomination speaks volumes about who the Democrats really are and what they believe.
The Left took over command of the Democratic Party in 1972 along with much of the country during the post-Vietnam period. After they veered hard left, the country voted in only one more overtly liberal president in Jimmy Carter in 1976. Bill Clinton lied well enough to get elected...THEN he turned left after assuming the throne.
Now, the country is awake and aware. Kerry IS a socialist's dream candidate. He will not be elected.
Until the Democratic Party changes, and that may not happen until 2008 if Hillary loses big as well, the Democrats will not substantively change. They will continue to think the elections are stolen from them, that their is some grand, evil scheme by the BFEE and the Neocons to subjigate the world and that they really are in the majority. They really are clueless.
Bush is going to win and win big.
mildbill39, a man of few words but eloquent, nonetheless. Well said.
What many people don't get about Kerry is WHERE HE COMES FROM.
I lived 36 years in Massachusetts. I first became politically aware while I lived there, and endured a decade of outrage at the absolute machine politics that governs that commonwealth. I was never so happy as when I got to NC and found a real, working two party system.
Massachusetts is so locked into PC and leftist ideology that a hand picked do-nothing blowhard like Kerry can get elected without ever being examined as to his credentials. I would bet you that at least 60% of the citizens who put Kerry in the Senate term after term NEVER KNEW about his Vietnam service lasting only 4 months, or his testimony before Congress in 1971.
He came into his political power as the construct of a one-party state. Once the Boston Globe and the Boston TV news understood that he'd been "blessed" by the Democrat aparatchiks, his career took off, and he was never questioned.
This is why it's such a mistake to take serously the blather about how he fought back against William Weld in the 11th hour to keep control of his Senate seat. In any other state William Weld would have won, but Kerry was backed by a totally controlling political machine that could get a monkey elected.
So when Komrad Kerry shows up on the national scene, he withers under the bright lights of examination. The Democrats deserve all the confusion and derision they're getting right now for selecting this loser almost sight-unseen.
Believe me, right now John Flip-flop Kerry is in a position he's never known before. His past, his positions, is flip-flops, none of this was ever questioned before. He is one lost and confused wanker.
