HERE IS THE KERRY JOKE ABOUT SHOOTING QUAYLE
SLATE DOT MSN DOT COM ^ | 1-25-04 | dfu

Posted on 01/25/2004 7:53:41 PM PST by doug from upland

Yes, ladies and gentlemen, a man who wants to be president really did tell a joke about the potential shooting of a sitting vice president. Drudge talked about it on his show tonight. This is just amazing. The Republicans are the ones who are mean spirited????

Excerpt from slate.msn.com ---

Quote: "Somebody told me the other day that the Secret Service has orders that if George Bush is shot, they're to shoot Quayle. … There isn't any press here, is there?" (Associated Press, Nov. 16, 1988).

Charge: Kerry delivered this joke at a business breakfast shortly after the election of President George H.W. Bush and Vice President Dan Quayle. The co-chairman of the Bush-Quayle campaign in Massachusetts called it "an extraordinarily reckless comment" that was "very clearly in bad taste."

If I posted something about wanting to shoot a
government official, I would be visited by the
secret service.

If you read the article, Kerry didn't post it. He said it at a business breakfast.

They are asking for $1,000, which ain't the same as going. (0) bids.

You obviously spent all of your time there until recently. In fact, you didn't sign up until tomorrow.

""Somebody told me the other day that the Secret Service has orders that if George Bush is shot, they're to shoot Quayle."

That isn't even funny. Maybe it came on the tail end of yet another of those zillions of tiresom "Quayle hunting" jokes the lefties were always trying to get everyone to laugh at.

Holy crap, I have a five-year-old who has better spelling and grammar skills than you.

Thankfully, I'm pretty sure you're too illiterate to successfully fill-out a voter registration card.

That Dean implosion probably made you weep. He was the stupid voter's candidate. Don't worry, Kerry's pretty braindead too.

Kerry will be easy to knock down; it is a good thing that the Clintons do not want Edwards to win. That lawyer maybe hard to be and will probably have a much cleaner past than Kerry.

You're obviously a product of the public school system and Hillary!s plan to dumb down America, beginning with yur generation. Literacy is your friend. Without it you sound pathetically stupid.

Sounds like a fantastic political commercial in the making. Repeat this, over... and over... and over.

"Somebody told me the other day that the Secret Service has orders that if George Bush is shot, they're to shoot Quayle."

That was a common joke back then.

Vice President Dan Quayle took quite a beating from the press over some of his mistakes in some of his speeches, and especially over his misspelling of the word "potato" at a school.

The press was constantly picking on Dan Qualye back then, trying to paint him as stupid.

All very unfair, perhaps. But still, that joke was just a joke.

Let's not forget this remark from Kerry:

Kerry Says US Needs Its Own 'Regime Change'
by Glen Johnson

PETERBOROUGH, N.H. - Senator John F. Kerry said yesterday that President Bush committed a ''breach of trust'' in the eyes of many United Nations members by going to war with Iraq, creating a diplomatic chasm that will not be bridged as long as Bush remains in office.

''What we need now is not just a regime change in Saddam Hussein and Iraq, but we need a regime change in the United States,'' Kerry said in a speech at the Peterborough Town Library.

http://www.commondreams.org/headlines03/0403-08.htm

And he WASN'T joking.

"no press here" DFU I just posted how many times I have heard Kerry supporters bring up that Kerry is always their for them and no MEDIA shows up....even Dennis Leary stopped and announced during that quaint ice hockey game that Kerry was in that Kerry helps others and no media show up .....meaning he is not a photo op guy?

He is playing the I am the helpful Sen. role and don't run and advertise to the media? Well for an avg. Jo to pick up on this I would suggest he stop using this I am a no MEDIA warm helpful guy and for his supporters to quit echoing the same thing. It is beyond repetitious and I have only been tuned to CSPAN for a week now following the Dem runners campaign trail.

As I asked on the other thread is there a CSPAN Dem. Campaign thread up and thriving yet?

Clark, Dean and the entire, rabid left have been calling for regime change in the US since last April. Kerry's just jumping on the bandwagon a little late as usual.

Also I watched Mrs. Kerry at a round table discussion with Nurses back east and they really seemed to rally around Kerry.

Being aware of the understaffing and many mistakes that are made I support Nurses in the fact that their ratio should be 4 to 1 (patient) on the floor to keep mortality rates low.

It depends on the Hosp/facility as I have been with my son in good and bad staff moral. Always have had to be on top of his orders for the first 24hrs though to get his meds. right.

My point being looking from the outside is that the Nurses union seems to dig Kerry.
