A Little More On A Big Moron

I'm going to reprint the bulk of this short piece from The Nation right here:

“With all due respect to my Notion colleagues, John Kerry is a pathetic loser --indeed, an almost compulsive gaffe-maker -- and we shouldn't waste time and energy defending him. He is that all-too-common Democratic politician who makes you paranoid that you're living in a scary science fiction story, in which the supposed ‘opposition’ candidates are actually androids controlled by the ruling party, programmed to weakly simulate campaigns, then quickly disintegrate into self-sabotage. Why else would Kerry have defended himself against the mendacious Swift Boat veterans two years too late? And why else would he and the rest of the Democrats be doing next-to-nothing to fight voting machine fraud, and curb racist vote suppression by the Republicans? And why must he invariably be such a dumbass?

Granted, Kerry didn't intend to make fun of the troops. But he's in no position to mock anyone else's academic record. The Yale transcripts of Bush and Kerry -- widely reported last year --showed that the two were equally sorry students. Kerry actually got four Ds his freshman year. Bush isn't the only one who owes his success more to his privilege than to hard work or talent. Let's hope this latest snafu puts the kibosh on presidential hopes that should have died long ago, and that Kerry shuts up before he helps elect more Republicans. (Apparently some in the Party establishment agree -- his campaign appearances have reportedly been cancelled.)”


Hear, hear! You’re doing more harm than good, John. Please go away.

Trouble is he speaks the truth and we all know it.

OL: I'm not necessarily disagreeing. I've just had enough idealistic losses/moral victories. How about we have an actual victory this time?

They just made a big deal out of it to shift focus. I think that everyone is playing their cards closely. If a person had told me that we would eventually live in a world where black was white, I would have disagreed. Now, I watch carefully and try to read between the lines. The most we citizens can do is think for ourselves and vote our conscience.

I believe that the mid-terms will even things out some, if not, then we, the people, have a lot of work to do!

I would like truly independent candidates with no party affiliations that want to represent the people and make this a better country.

I just hate the fact that Kerry backs down from dubya's bullying.

god, this whole thing is smokescreen that reeks of karl rove. if the american people can't figure that out, then we really do deserve another four years of republican bullsh*t. i just feel bad for the rest of the world because they take the brunt of our ways.

but it would be nice for the dems to grow a set. god, ya'll, take a stand on something!
