Scaramouch, how fitting.

Bohemian Rapsody, by Queen.


Is this the real life?
Is this just fantasy?
Caught in a landslide,
No escape from reality
Open your eyes, Look up to the skies and see,
I'm just a poor boy, I need no sympathy,
Because I'm easy come, easy go, Little high, little low,
Any way the wind blows doesn't really matter to me, to me

Mama just killed a man,
Put a gun against his head, pulled my trigger, now he's dead
Mama, life had just begun,
But now I've gone and thrown it all away
Mama, ooh, Didn't mean to make you cry,
If I'm not back again this time tomorrow,
Carry on, carry on as if nothing really matters

Too late, my time has come,
Sends shivers down my spine, body's aching all the time
Goodbye, ev'rybody, I've got to go,
Gotta leave you all behind and face the truth
Mama, ooh, I don't want to die,
I sometimes wish I'd never been born at all

I see a little silhouetto of a man,
Scaramouche, Scaramouche, will you do the Fandango
Thunderbolt and lightning, very, very fright'ning me
(Galileo) Galileo (Galileo) Galileo, Galileo figaro
Magnifico I'm just a poor boy and nobody loves me
He's just a poor boy from a poor family,
Spare him his life from this monstrosity
Easy come, easy go, will you let me go
Bismillah! No, we will not let you go
(Let him go!) Bismillah! We will not let you go
(Let him go!) Bismillah! We will not let you go
(Let me go) Will not let you go
(Let me go) Will not let you go (Let me go) Ah
No, no, no, no, no, no, no
(Oh mama mia, mama mia) Mama mia, let me go
Beelzebub has a devil put aside for me, for me, for me

So you think you can stone me and spit in my eye
So you think you can love me and leave me to die
Oh, baby, can't do this to me, baby,
Just gotta get out, just gotta get right outta here

Nothing really matters, Anyone can see,
Nothing really matters,
Nothing really matters to me

Any way the wind blows

Scaramouche
stock character of the Italian theatrical form known as the commedia dell'arte; an unscrupulous and unreliable servant. His affinity for intrigue often landed him in difficult situations, yet he always managed to extricate himself, usually leaving an innocent bystander as his victim.

Kerry obviously did not understand the historical meaning of Scaramouche and probably just watched the movie by the same name in the 50s.

Scaramouche was a stock character in a form of improvisational theater during the 16th to 18 centuries.
The character usually wore a black velvet cape, a mask, black trousers,shirt and hat.

I'm sure Kerry thinks of himself as a Zorro type ,when in reality,he's a Zero. Photoshop, anyone ??

Scaramouche was usually the servant of another character and is usually described as a boastful coward.

For comparison:
President George H Bush has an Aronow Cigarette boat, named " Fidelity."
President George W. Bush has a bass boat in Texas, IIRC.

It has two 500HP diesels!

He has a thooouuuussssaaand horsepower boat with Japanese engines and people are worried about his SUV?

Wake up Sheeple, he's got a thooouuuussssaaand horsepower boat, a huge frigging private jet airplane like Elvis and his wife poops out hundred dollar bills.

John Kerry is not like anyone in America.

According to Wikipedia, "While at his Swiss boarding school, Kerry saw Scaramouche, his favorite movie and movie hero, for whom he later would name his powerboat. ".

This site also outlines the history of Kerry ancestors, the Forbes family , their wealth apparently derived from the drug trade.

...the Forbes Family made their money in the drug trade and "became known in China during the Opium War in the 19th century as the 'Opium Dynasty' or 'Poppy Dynasty' ."

Take the top Democrat's $800,000 yacht "The Scaramouche." The Kerry campaign has yet to release figures on how much marine fuel this beaut eats up just to keep the Massachusetts Democrat sailing in style. But it must cost a bundle.

The Scaradouche leaves port with 520 gallons of smelly old diesel, of course it not really for overnight trips.
