The Kerry campaign calls on a publisher to 'withdraw book' written by group of veterans, claiming veterans are lying about Kerry's service in Vietnam and operating as a front organization for Bush. Kerry campaign has told Salon.com that the publisher of UNFIT FOR COMMAND is 'retailing a hoax'... 'No publisher should want to be selling books with proven falsehoods in them,' Kerry campaign spokesman Chad Clanton tells the online mag... Developing...
>> KERRY CAMPAIGN CALLS FOR BOOK BAN
Kerry could just address the points in the book and disprove them.
But that might hurt what little is left of his political career.
Kerry's real fear factor is showing. Banning books? What country in what century are we?
So I guess that means that there are no more liberal books coming out for this election season?
No, no, no...I don't believe it, they couldn't be that stupid.
Somebody pinch me.
Let's start by banning all Bush-bashing books.
Then we'll move to any cookbooks including tofu recipes.
Followed by any "Be a Mime in Six Easy Steps" instruction manuals...
That looks just like Ol' Horseface on the right!
Kerry is now advocating suppression of information and the freedom of speech. I wonder how many leftwing bookstores will gladly ban UFC and carry every Bush bashing book out there.
Consider yourself pinched.
Is this Kerry's sensitive war on books, lol.
That's just too funny!
Free speech for me, but not for you.
Did anyone hear the caller on Hannity's radio show yesterday? She said she called a Borders book store yesterday, and the manager told her that "the book was being recalled due to all the lies". Can you believe this????
John Kerry is shooting himself in the foot.
Kerry Campaign in Panic Mode
Liberal's believe in free speech for pornographers. And for themselves. Typical totalitarians. What' pigs.
I've always said scary kerry is a communist, now he's just proved my point.
They would 'ban' the truth; while Michael Moore gets an 'off the 'charts'celebratory status . . .
Would say 'go figure'; but for the lying Left; it just does.
Where is the Konigratzer March?
Banning books is no problem for the 50% of the electorate who does not read and , oh BTW, gets their news from the MSM.
Regnery --Print an order for a million. You have a blockbuster. You can't pay enough money for publicity like this.
Some Freepers were throwing around the term "jump the shark" a few weeks ago.. May be time to trot that out again if this is true.
My guess is this will turn out to be an anonymous source or some doofus thinking out loud. Kerry will backpedal on this like a crawdad runs from a Cajun with a gunny sack.
Ah...the party of free speech!
They are screwing this up soooo bad.
Saying the vets are doing GW's "dirty work."
Trying to silence the critics, get the ads off the air, and ban the book.
All this points to is that they know the truth is damaging, but it brings so much more attention to the matter than if they had just shut up.
It's like the furor before The Passion was released. Every insult in the book was thrown at the movie, and what happened....it grossed more than anyone could have expected.
Heh heh. I love it.
Bring it on-O.K release your medical records and let people read the book.
He can't possibly be this stupid.
Drudge is a little slow on this, as is the rest of the media, but he's giving it the play it deserves.
The "new" face of the Democratic party. (Well, not really new. We've know this is where they were going for a long time).
Bookstores have entire sections devoted to the Bush bashing genre and he wants to ban one book that is difficult to find? (I got mine last night!)
Probably exactly right, and a good, colorful simile to boot. :-)
I still think it HAS to be an exaggeration.
But Lord, if he actually came right out and said something like "I hope bookstores won't sell it"...
Scratch Kerry, uncover a tyrant.
Their best bets would have been to either ignore and dismiss it completely, or to agree to release all the records and then shut up about it.
Kerry Campaign making a major mistake
I'm going to my book store today and if they don't have it I'm going to order it.
All books or one in particular?
Wow. This morning I had a nice talk with my kids telling them that Kerry has finally slipped over the edge and is going to crash and burn in spectaular fashion.
Between his rants about this book and the Leftist protesters rioting in NYC next week, the "undecided middle" is going to come flocking to Bush's side in droves.
Bush will win 56-58% of the vote in November.
The Kerry campaign has definitely Jumped The Shark.
Kerry is running scared.
That makes two. It's easier, though, when Kerry is the author of one of them.
Sure ..and lets burn the book too.
****FOX IX GOING TO SHOW THE NEW SWIFT BOAT VET's ad when it comes out in a few minutes...stay tuned!***
Anyone calling for a book ban is NOT qualified to be president of the USA, period.
Ah, yes. As usual, when it comes down to it, the true enemies of freedom of speech are the leftists.
Last week, in Canada, the Canadian government warned churches not to talk about controversial subjects such as abortion before the election or it would yank their tax free status.
1984, here we come.
OMG, I did miss it. I was in transit between NY and home.
THis is unbelievable.
