Kerry: Still Trying To Be Somebody:

Kerry's Second Shot?

Kerry says the only reason he didn’t compete in more states in 2004 was that he ran out of money.

He says this was also the reason he did not adequately respond to a series of devastating TV ads by Swift Boat Veterans for the Truth, a group that questioned Kerry’s service in Vietnam and criticized his later opposition to the war.

“They had money behind the lies, and we did not have sufficient money behind the truth,” Kerry laments.

Asked if he dreads the prospect of being “Swift-Boated” all over again, Kerry counters that he would relish such a fight.

“I’m prepared to kick their ass from one end of America to the other,” he declares. “I am so confident of my abilities to address that and to demolish it and to even turn it into a positive.”

Kerry’s tough talk triggers laughter from John O’Neill, a fellow Vietnam veteran who helped found Swift Boat Veterans for the Truth and wrote a blistering 2004 book on Kerry, “Unfit for Command.”

“Well, he’s got eight times as much time to prepare for us as he spent in Vietnam,” says O’Neill, referring to Kerry’s short tour of duty.

Wouldn't it be nice if the "kept man" Kerry was his party's nominee once again? The Dems do us such a favor with the idiots and frauds they pick. Kerry and Gore both did their VERY short military stints, Gore with his daddy's bodyguard and Kerry with his cameraman, and then went quickly into politics for LIFE!
I have absolutely no respect for pols who haven't spent a substantial amount of time in the private sector developing an appreciation for what makes this country tick.
Both of these fu--ing buffoons make me sick! Still, we should thank the Dems for picking them...

What about McCain? He's been a politician from the time he was in short pants! Sen. J. Denton's book about life in the Hanoi Hilton has some flashes of McCain's future ambitions.

P.S. Morgan, you get the prayer alerts alright?

TMW McCain's best days were definitely in Nam. In my humble opinion it's been all downhill for that ------- since then. His service in that war was exemplary, politics has brought out the salamader in him.
I've gotten some of the prayer alerts, thanks. I haven't read every one of them though. Often I'll skim the list for customers wanting to book work and move on to other things. They will certainly occupy my time on Saturday though, no work allowed on the Sabbath.

To the followers of the cult of islam:

Until you grow up and stop spreading your hatred towards everyone else, including your own cult-mates - you should NOT expect ANYONE to apologize for offending your poor, muslim sensibilities about beheading, homocide bombings, stonings for adultry.

My goodness...the hubris of these murdering 7th century morons is MIND BLOWING!

DO NOT APOLOGIZE! Ask for open debate, but never apologize for telling the truth.

And GOD BLESS Fallaci!

Ease her pain, Lord.

If nothing else, she will no longer have to deal with the supporters of the cult of islam - she will be preaching to the choir forever.

I am getting more and more angry as I read the cult of islam reaction to some WORDS spoken by the Pope.


WTF is wrong with these people???


I need a couple of shots of Jim Beam. Maybe then I'll be better. Probably not, because eventually I will sober up and the cult members will still be insane and angry.



I am non-violent guy for the most part. I am 38 and have not been in a fight since I was 14. However, I would gladly push the button to end the entire cult.
I was going to hell anyway....

Over at DU...

...they are linked to an article where Bush uses hand sanitizer after shaking hands with Barak Obama. The DU article is called 'George Bush Doesn't like to shake hands with Black people'.

Typical tripe for sure. However, when you read the article that they link to, the main story is that Robert (Grand Kleagle for the Klan) Byrd is advising Obama to temper his ambitions to the White House.

How can you have an article with a former Klan member telling a young black man to stop being so uppity and then call the President a racist because he uses hand sanitizer??

Thank goodness these people are focused on petty crap that most folks do not care about. If they put the same effort into real ideas - they would be dangerous.


Have a good day.
