April 23, 2004 -- WASHINGTON - On Earth Day, Democrat John Kerry reluctantly admitted to having a gas-guzzling SUV in the family - but blamed his wife. "The family has it. I don't have it," Kerry said yesterday.

"The family has it. I don't have it,"

Everytime I try to get out of the SUV, they pull me back in!

That's because he's not really part of the family I guess.

FLOP flip: First he didn't, now he does; but he really didn't want to own it; she made him do it! It's her fault!

This lyin' dude just can't seem to get his stories straight!

"I ain't got no SUV...Oh, The family has one."

"I voted for that war thing after I didn't vote for it...or was it the other way around, cain't remember."

He just doesn't know the meaning of the word "own". Remember Dims have trouble with words of three letters or less, but I hear they specialize in four letter words....

This whole anti-SUV business is one of Rush's most impressive "see, I told you so" moments. When he first proposed it years ago I thought he was crazy for thinking the enviornmental wacko's would attack my favorite form of transportation. Alas, it's now part of presidential politics.

If one is really good with picture editing we can get a flip-flop SUV and maybe a good swisher or flasher can get Kerry in a gymnastics cartoon. I am not that talented with the joys of binary code yet!

The scandal is not that Kerry drives one. The scandal is that Kerry feels it important that he not drive one.

I wonder what Kerry does when his wife uses her private jet, flies commercial?

So a guy who wants to lead the most powerful nation on earth can't even influence his family's choice of vehicles?

"I drove the car before I didn't drive it."

"It was mine before it wasn't mine."

"I don't own an SUV," Kerry

"I did not have sex with that woman..." Clinton

I'm pretty sure they had the fire hydrant in front of their Beacon Hill manse moved in order to park their Jeep Grand Cherokee.I could be wrong on the model but it sure wasn't for a Chrysler.
