A smorgasbord of items affecting the presidential campaign, particularly the Democratic challenger … .

In declaring he is "taking the gloves off" and going on the attack against President Bush, John Kerry says the President is wrong in stating about Iraq — as he told the United Nations Wednesday — that "the advance of liberty is the path to a safer world." Kerry stands over there in the same camp with the UN's Kofi Annan, who terms the war "illegal" because it lacks UN sanction. Kerry also says Iraqi Prime Minister Ayad Allawi is wrong not only about the good flowing from the war but also about how the war itself is going. Kerry calls Bush and his policies "arrogant." The better question: In this face-off over Iraq, who is the locked-on leader and who the patronizing patrician?

• Kerry carries the politician's penchant for arrogance to new extremes. A comparison of the use of I, me, or my in presidential nomination acceptance speeches produced these numbers: Franklin Roosevelt in 1932 — 69 times in a 4,300-word speech; Harry Truman in 1948 — 56 times in a 2,700-word speech; Ronald Reagan in 1980 — 40 times in a 4,700-word speech; Bush in 2004 — 96 times in a 5,044-word speech; Kerry — 124 times in a 5,161-word speech.

Kerry's wife may have given part of the game away when she explained her three names: "My legal name is still Teresa Heinz. Teresa Heinz Kerry is my name - for politics."

So it is the name she uses for acting the part. LOL

An egotist who uses "I, me, my, or mine" in every sentence but can't get his wife to "carry his brand" must be one miserable bastard. Now the true reason he wants to be President emerges...it's for his manhood!

Thank Good Holy God for George W. Bush.
