So um...

By now, most anyone on the blogosphere has seen this.

This is some smooth commentary one week before the election. So, I'm the idiot because I voted against this guy? Maybe he should call babies "ugly" just for good measure. Now, I'm sure it's not as bad as it sounds. He probably just meant that it's important to study so that you don't wind up like the uneducated trash that gets stuck with a military career...

Oh, wait, that's pretty damn bad.

Sorry, I'm busy today, but I couldn't pass up the opportunity to whack John Kerry.

In the true spirit of the modern soldier, John Kerry is attacking and undermining our troops by stating equivocally that they are stupid. Need I remind that this was the best the Democratic Party had to offer for the President? Maybe we just need to ask Democrats to abstain from politics until they can get actual intelligent people to run under their party’s banner. See you in 20 years.

And then this dipshit has the audacity to call Republicans right wing nuts? He offers no apology for what he calls a critique of Bush adminsitration policy.

Does he have no shame? If I'm a democrat (I mean a real Democrat, not some Dailykos fruitcake) I'm about pissing myself right now.


As a Republican, I'm... Giddy.

I understand what he was trying to address...but he phrased it in such a way that there is just no defense. Granted, he could have written it off as a bad choice of words...but no, he had to write that dumbass letter. Just think, that guy could have been our president. It amazes me how many things the dems can have in there favor and yet still manage to turn the guns on themselves...

Thom,

Don't you think that his statements represent the cultural divide that CAUSES democrats to turn the gun on themselves? As I see it, there is a contempt for ordinary working folks that runs through the party elite (see their inexplicable hatred of Walmart).

At any rate, the notion that this guy was going to lead our country. Well, I sure as hell didn't vote for him.

Well, actually, I don't think it's only the democrats...I mean, Republicans turned the gun on themselves during the Clinton years more than once.

I don't find much admirable about either side these days. But I really did not like Kerry at all. Still don't. As much as I don't like Bush, I had no faith that Kerry could do a better job. He is part of a loudmouth elite that seems incapable of connecting with the common American.

As an Ibex, I vote for Ross Perot.

Go Independence Party!

I actually voted for Pat Buchanan one year just because I despised all the other candidates.

It really turns me off to voting when it feels like I have to decide who is the lesser of two evils. Then I feel guilty for not voting because of how many suffered to give me this right.

Kevin, hurry up and turn 35 so I can write you in.

Are Tim Pawlenty and Mark Kennedy evil? No! They are fine, upstanding citizens. Vote for the, and shun the party of John Kerry.

I voted for George Bush in the last election because I absolutely couldn't stand Kerry.

To think that once upon a time I considered myself a democrat. Although I don't like to identify solely with one party or another, since I'm anti gay marriage and pro life that aligns me more with republican views and therefore my votes tend to be cast more toward that party, but a democrat may be on my ballot on occasion.

There are many, many reasons to vote Republican. School choice, pro-growth economics, foreign policy (most of our troops are Republican, btw, which is why Kerry thinks they're dumb), the right to discipline our children, eminent domain, etc...

have you served in the military? excuse me if you've covered this somewhere on your site. the only reason i ask is that you sound, in the few posts i've run across, like a cheney-ranger instead of the real thing. you're also probably in your twenties, and very enamoured of rush limbaugh (btw, do as he says, don't do as he does...)

in short, pipsqueak, you are a loser who needs to grow up. unfortunately for the world, there are plenty of losers in charge who should have grown up long ago, so your role models are failing you and us. maybe the fact that they avoided the hard choices that faced them in their formative -- Vietnam War -- years (daddy got them a cushy stateside assignment for which they didn't bother to show, or they had "other priorities", etc. etc.) has addled their brains. You don't have the same excuse. You want to make the world a safer place? You think Iraq is the place to do that? Get your sorry ass over there, buddy. And while you're at it, contact your commander in chief and have him send his military age daughters over with you.

Speaking of daughters, you wouldn't happen to have a 15 year old daughter, would you? I mean, to go with your years of military service?

Though i'm angry at Kerry and the fact he completely failed to even pretend to apologize for what he said, you're putting words in his mouth and in the mouth of the democratic party. To hang him and this one stupid, stupid, and completey ignorant incident as the poster child for the entire democratic party is the same to pin Bush and his constant flubs and uncomfortable public speaking along with his controversially (somewhat) extreme viewpoints on religioun as the same for the republicans. Not saying people don't do that, but it's just as unfair. We need to fucking start treating these politicians as individuals (i don't know how realistic that is) but at least on some level, or this country is going to go nowhere. Is already going nowhere.

And whatever happened to the Worst Movies of All Time posts? I loved those. Fuck Dead Poets Society and all that.

WFAT will be back after the election (or after Democrats stop saying stupid things).

I will say this however. The Democrats made it the focus of their nationwide campaign to focus on scandal, and let the Republicans fall on their own sword. They intentionally kept policy discussion sparse, and had a media apparatus ready to blow up "Macaca" and "Foley" type stories. Even liberals (real ones, not the Dailykos Bush-hating types) have bemoaned that lack of any real agenda from congressional Dem candidates.

So, to the extent that this is being used, turnabout's fairplay, yah? The problem for Dems is that they have nothing to pivot to. They can't redirect the discussion to policy, because they have proffered no solutions.

Hahaha... Macaca was fabulous. I sneezed blood when i was introduced to that eloquent play on words.
