It will be interesting to watch Hillary.
No doubt she and Bill will adopt a child to use as a campaign prop.
It has everything but the kitchen sink.
Note this was about the time that he stopped giving press conferences.Wonder why?
That just makes me grin ear to ear every time I read it.
Let me guess. Kerry, for reasons of personal vanity, would have preferred to keep the hearing problem(?) concealed indefinitely, thus creating a long stream of verbal understandings while in office.
Kerry is disqualified from high office for being incapable of telling the truth in a timely manner.
Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha.....
Nice BIG grin.
Because Kerry, overall, is a girly man, and it's the one thing he can point to, other than giving
mouth to mouth to a hamster named Lemiwinks or some such.
Do you remember that during the primaries, the Kerry Kampaign fired Chris Lehaine(sp?) for suggesting
that Kerry back off the Vietnam thing?
He never takes responsiblity for anything.
We really dodge a bullet with his loss.
Big time loser.
The people of Mass must be nuts to have the Kennedy/Kerry duo.
I think you're right.
He was too much of a loose canon, just like Teresa.
Not likely. The Springfield Republican's (newspaper, not political party) below-the-fold lead article had words to the effect that not a single pro-gay marriage legislator was defeated. It went on to say that they were considering a move to DROP consideration of the state constitutional amendment to ban the marriages, implemented by appointed (not elected) state supremes. I'll try to find the article.
Where's the PH from his hearing loss?
John F*ckin' - who lost his presidential bid in the shifting wind. How fitting.
Not just damaged hearing. Vietnam-damaged hearing. Hah!
He just won't give it up.
On the trail of Kerry's failed dream
That's O.K. Teresa will give him nine grapes and a new windsurfing board.
White grapes? And with Gin ??? :^D
According to Drudge, he had Walking Pneumonia during the campaign. Not a good thing for an aspiring president.
That's a neat little clip there. What program did you use?
I shouldn't be at all surprised, were I you, if you were to be sued in court for libel (or slander, or malpractice, or something) by John Edwards, as well.
Don "Kerry" Quioxte and Sancho "Eddie" Panza.
That's funny!! Well done!!
IMHO, this is the main thing journalists do wrong on a consistent basis, and no one calls them on it. You can find it in almost every article in the paper and news magazines. Very few journalists have any credibility anymore. It sure doesn't look like they teach it in journalism school to me.
"I shall be spending Christmas with John and Teresa, boating on the river in Cambodia."
LOL, do tell Ter-ray-zaa I intend to try her arthritis cure!
"Reid is expected to succeed Sen. Tom Daschle, who lost his South Dakota seat"
Doesn't it say volumes that they didn't pick Kerry?
After all, he's a Senator.
Calvin Locke wrote: "Mosh pit journalism. It is the Boston Globe after all."
The Globe is a liberal rag. I was surprised to read: "Now, as Kerry campaign strategists try to fathom his Nov. 2 loss, one word emerges out of the rubble: war."
How perceptive. Other left wing post mortems attribute Kerry's loss to red state homophobia.
Oh shi'-ite, I see another Purple Heart request coming.
Seriously, if this is even true, that would mean he's receiving some sort of gubmint Disability Payment each month. After all, a guy who groveled after PH's for scratches is NOT going to let a military related injury go without getting his 'just' compensation.
So my questions are ....
So c'mon John you have nothing to loose now, RELEASE your records and sign that SF180. Oh and pleeeeeeease, tell 'us' MORE about all your "war injuries".
[An aside; two days ago I received very bad news about one of my best friends who was 'In Country' and came close to 'buying it' in '67 and I'm kind of 'bummed out' at the present. So this scum bag phony war hero Kerry is really, REALLY, pi$$ing me off now]
Haaa, the famous question, CAN YOU HEAR ME NOW?
"Kerry, whose hearing was damaged by gun blasts in Vietnam, had trouble understanding some of the questions being thrown his way."
Please. He was in-country for what, 120 days, during which he may - or may not - have fired his weapon or had weapons fired in close proximity to him. There is real question as to whether or not he was actually in combat. Enough is enough - the Vietnam "hero" myth has been completely debunked and yet rags like the Boston Globe continue to perpetuate it. Give it up.
Myself, I am troubled by the continuing assertion that Max Cleland is a "War Hero". His story is even more pathetic than Kerry's. The reason you never hear of his medals is that in his case, the Army issued no medals because his injuries were the result of his utter stupidity and drunkedness when he picked up a live grenade while on his way to party.
There was NO combat involved in Clelands accident, as the Globe innaccurately asserts. The lies and omissions in his record are even more disturbing than Kerry's.
Well thanks for the link. I guess Kerry and Kennedy will buzz around the trough until they keel over from natural causes.
"Kerry, whose hearing was damaged by gun blasts in Vietnam"
Considering the miniscule amount of action he was present for, this is highly doubtful. Just another excuse for incompetence.
"Geeee the election won by a bit of pollen and a puff of wind....Gesundheit !!!!"
Sounds like a mandate to me!!
Yeah, right. Flip-flops, MSM carrying his water, maniacal talking heads pimping for him,
back-stabbing the troops now, as he did in the early 1970s, promising to make the US subservient
to the UN, sucking up to France, harassing the USSS agents sworn to protect him, hiding
his $800K yacht that Joe Sixpack couldn't afford the gas to operate, cheating the US taxpayers
out of his Senate paycheck, picking a trial lawyer as a running mate, the running mate's
wife implying riots if they lose, being a hypocrite about the military, being Teddy K. lapdog,
appearing to be a gigolo, having a plan that nobody can see, not doing anything as a Senator
for 20 years, ...
"Not one place in this 7,600 word article is the name Ted Kennedy mentioned."
True. Very interesting. Don't want to mention the name of the King in the same article as the failure/loser?
This was really interesting to read, as it made me remember every moment I had of worry, frustration, and anger since 2 summers ago when I knew instictively that Kerry would be the Dems' nominee. He was all they had to throw up against Commander In Chief Bush, and it's really good to find out how they decided to overplay that hand.
"Reporting for duty". I LOVE knowing Max Cleland is responsible for that embarrassingly cheesy line! Maybe soon enough we'll find out what else Cleland contributed to the campaign, via CBS. I'd almost bet the farm he's connected to the memo. And I bet by now Cleland couldn't get Kerry to accept a call if his wheelchair were on fire.
Your animation is Fantastic!!!! Thanks for sharing.
"A stiff wind was blowing across the canyon, and Kerry, whose hearing was damaged by gun blasts in Vietnam, had trouble understanding some of the questions being thrown his way."
".....But he pressed on,
.....coughing from the pollen blowing on the breeze."
