the NY times failed ot mention that the biggest reason people scoff at the windsurfing expeditions is that kerry missed over 80 percent of the senate votes.
he is a lazy little beanpole
Kerry has been photographed a lot on the water. But you never see his hair wet. It just adds makes an unnatural personae even more so. C'mon, yer on the water. Ya gotta get wet sometime! Must be part of the whole "I never fall down" thing.
Funny that they draw the line at Harvard rowing. Windsurfing is for everybody, rowing is for the elite! HA
Being an elitist is an attitude, not financial.
Bush is baseball, apple pie, and Chevrolet. Kerry is polo, watercress sandwiches, and BMW.
Nothing wrong with windsurfing to relax - but what does it say when you take the press along on all your supposed leisure activities?
Bunny suit, pitching a baseball, trying to catch a football, limp wristed salutes, etc. all add up to one thing. He's a DORK.
he does have funny hair. I agree with that professor on that. His hair is just so ...poofy
CONGRATULATIONS, Watery Tart !
And when Kerry was trying to resonate with the southern pickup truck crowd, he would say from the stage, "and who among us does not love NASCAR?"
Has no problem selling out current US troops...
Very Flexible Loyalties...
Now Character Impediments
Allow me to don my tinfoil hat for a moment.
The photos of him in spandex are hard to find on the net anymore.
Almost as if someone went aroudn systematically removing them.
> Watery Tart, you made the NYT :-)
Good detective work, Tamsey.
I can't believe I just read in the NYT that the democrat party, the party of labor, immigrants and minorities, has transformed into the party of the elite, while the Republicans have changed themselves into the party of the common man! I mean...I almost fell off my windsurf board :-)
I have a neighbor with a bumper sticker "billionaires for Bush". It just makes me laugh when I think what a rich elitist snob this Kerry is, how many mansions he has, etc., etc. Also, what about George "Bush is a Nazi" Soros? And in any event, I thought this whole class warfare thing had ended with the collapse of Communism and Clinton's relative muting of the left's demonization of business proclivities. Marxism would appear to be back with a vengeance in a new and virulent mutation.
No matter how much time he spent up north, he still talks Texan.
Yep... that's her :-)
I have a cable connection... whoosh!
Kerry should immediately counter his elitist image by opening up a fire hydrant in Harlem and playing in the water with a bunch of black children.
It's the photo-op of the century, I tell you.
I am not going to ask why you were trying to find them.(just had to take that shot ;)
Me, too! Surprised me so much I dropped my caviar right into my lap!
Don't worry, I'm fine, I'm fine.....Jeeves rushed right over to make a new cracker for me.
I have DSL.
No explanations needed for prompt fast research :)
Charlie don't Windsurf!
"..Mr. Bush manages to pull off the common-man routine without question."
This is the same as how dogs pull off the whole canine routine better than cats do. Funny the lefties don't even consider the possibility that Kerry can't pull it off simply because it is a routine. Meanwhile Bush ain't acting.
Can a person "sneer" on the Internet?
Talk about NYT journalists spewing Democrat talking points... this line is almost word for word from Kerry.
As his plane was flying from Oregon to Idaho on Saturday, Kerry defended his taste in sports, saying, "The guys who do it are all local guys -- plumbers, construction workers."
Kerry's ability to make himself look like a complete Doofus when atempting any athletic activity would embarras anyone with an honest staff or friend into forbidding press coverage.
"Zell Miller, who could himself be accused of being flip-flopper-in-chief,"
This has become a talking point of late. It's absurd, of course, since Zell Miller is actually just sticking to what he's always believed.
The difference is Kerry is playacting to try to idenitfy with the common man. Bush was on his ranch and couldn't care less if he fell. He who he is. Did you see Kerry skeet shooting? "See, I'm a gun guy". This fool doesn't see that people see through his tricks. Hes running out of sports, what next?
I may be out of touch, but the burden of raising a family doesn't allow windsurfing in our budget. What a jerk.
Glad you mentioned this. I noticed it also.
Shouldn't the New York Slimes be registered as a 527?
This fool doesn't see that people see through his tricks. Hes running out of sports, what next?
Running with the bulls?
I don't think people would be as upset if Kerry just naturally acted like the man of privilege he is, instead of looking like a complete fool pretending to be "one of the commoners."
The SUV thing is to show the hypocrisy of the left. They are the ones who are supposedly saving the environment and the common man should be forced into driving a tin can which gets 50 miles to the gallon while they continue to drive whatever the heck they want.
Sour Grapes. NY Slimes can't understand why sKerry can't come across as a regular guy like the Pres. Gee, hard to understand, huh?
Thanks to the FReeps here and everywhere for making it a pleasure to come here to read and post. It is GREAT to see ALL FREEPS get the National and International respect and exposure that Free Republic is getting now, and will continue to get in the future. I am grateful.
The thing the Times misses is that Kerry has been looking stupid for a long time. It's not that he looked particularly goofy windsurfing this week; he looked just as dopey snowboarding six months ago. But Kerry was ahead in the polls then, and he's behind now, so all of a sudden, the Times realizes that Kerry is capable of looking dopey in these pictures.
From reading or hearing all the comments women were making about him, President Bush clearly didn't look like a dork in any of those pictures.
Georgia Senator Zell Miller: "I noticed that John Kerry was out windsurfing the other day. I still don't understand why this man still goes around in those skin tight spandex things. How many people in the United States windsurf or wear those silly little bicycle shorts?"
Here's another quote from Zell on Kerry -- this was from January, mind you:
(2) Now to "Cussing Kerry." Like Alice, this campaign gets "curiouser and curiouser." What will those former Gore consultants try next? The electric blue spandex surfing bodysuit didn't work. The jeans and Harley Davidson didn't work. Chet Atkins turned in his grave at the senator's guitar picking. And now comes the F-word in Rolling Stone. My mouth ain't no prayer book, but John Kerry could have asked his pal Tom Harkin of Iowa how cussing went over with voters in 1992. Like a lead balloon. It's as if Mr. Kerry will do anything to appear the "coolest" in the Our Gang crowd. What's next? John Kerry wearing a baseball cap sideways?
You know, I thought you were wearing a tinfoil hat, but then I noticed in the freeper thread about him windsurfing that the Yahoo photo link doesn't work anymore. I don't think that's an accident.
I think it's more that because the Democrats have spent years trying to portray themselves as the party of the common man (calling themselves "The People's Party"), and the Greenies (who hate the SUVs,) - that make the yachts, the mansions, the SUVs noticable because of their hypocracy. The rich Republican stereotype is something the Democrats have perpetuated, so according to them, it would not be unusual for a Republican to be at a Yacht Club.
The Democrats have painted themselves into a corner with this image. Bush can clear brush on his ranch and WOW, he's more like us than we thought. Kerry goes windsurfing at one of his many vacation homes, with his family's yacht, jet, SUVs at his disposal - hmmm, not so much like me.
I note that they're still pushing the "first George Bush bewildered at the grocery scanner" lie. It was totally false, made up by a reporter who wasn't even at the event.
Kate starts off lamenting the mocking of Kerry for wanting to spend "a summer afternoon windsurfing" as if he's toiling endlessly and was only seeking a few brief moments' respite from the perpetual grind. The fact is he's constantly goofing off.
From there her analysis and comparisons get just plain idiotic.
