Skip to comments."Unfit For Command" Author Considers Challenging Kerry in Senate Race

John Kerry's nightmarish challenge by his Swift Boat veterans and their allies may not be over.
NewsMax recently chatted with Jerry Corsi, the co-author with Swiftee John O'Neill of "Unfit for Command" the runaway New York Times best seller that torpedoed Kerry's presidential campaign.
Attending a conference in the suburbs of Washington recently, Corsi let it be known that he is actively considering a run against Sen. Kerry when his term is up.
Corsi is not a Massachusetts native, but says he has already scouted for property to declare his residence there.
He appeared excited about the challenge. Federal law allows him to declare his candidacy at any time and open up a full fusillade against the Senate's most liberal member.
Corsi thinks his criticisms of Kerry will be well received in the state that elected Republican Mitt Romney. Even Bush fared better in Massachusetts in 2004 against its home state candidate than he did against Gore in 2000.
Corsi also notes that his Italian-Irish ancestry will give him an edge in a state given to ethnic voting. Kerry is neither Irish nor Italian, Corsi notes.
As word has circulated about a possible candidacy, Corsi says he has been flooded with e-mails of support.
Corsi said he has read news reports that Kerry is considering a lawsuit against him, O'Neill and the Swift Boat Vets.
Presumably the suit would be for defamation. The New York Post's Page Six quoted a top aide to Kerry saying the senator would need to file such a suit if he has any prayer of making a presidential bid in 2008. Incredibly, Kerry is said to be considering such a run.
Corsi said he and O'Neill have discussed the possibility of the lawsuit, and both said they might offer to pay Kerry for the FedEx charges to serve them with any court papers.
"Quote me: Bring it on!" Corsi said with a chuckle.
Oh...this would be rich!
Hehehe.... but I don't think Massachusetts will elect a conservative Republican to the U.S Senate.
I wish O'Neill and the Swiftees would sue Lawrence O'Donnell and MSNBC for slander.
So, Kerry would have to sue to shut the Swifties up, but he dasn't because they would they get discovery/180?
Corsi has enough dirt even now to make it a great election...
How about someone from Massachusetts that can actually win the race?
Well, if Corsi is going to do it, establish residency now and don't by an Alan Keyes usurper.
This is the best news I have had today!
Looks like the entire US Senate will fail to impeach Hanoi Kerry.
Looks like 55 R seats in the US Senate mean nothing.
Once again the "silent majority" will cave into the anti-war protestors.
Please take the time to read this article.
How long till the next attack on the military by Hanoi Kerry?
ABC, AP, CBS, CNN, FOX, MSNBC, NBC, NY Times
will be sure to bring you Hanoi Kerry's latest propaganda.
Then ask your US Senator why Hanoi Kerry is still a US Senator.
Timeline of Hanoi Kerry
I VOW to the 58,000 + Brothers and Sisters on
The Viet Nam Wall who never came home
and to those who died at home from injuries and
from broken hearts.
"I will do everything I LEGALLY can
to expose Hanoi Kerry once and for all.
I will not tire, I will not falter,
and I will not fail.
I solemnly vow to do all I can to restore your honor
until I give my last breath on earth."
EXPOSE HANOI KERRY!
Distribute these url's!
There is a backup site
if the 1st url is unavailable.
Ah, these guys are priceless!!!!!
He had to drop out of sight during the campaign because of his ill-chosen words.
Well you being a MA resdient would certainly know alot more about the Traitor's living conditions than I. LOL
But I would certainly support(read donate) Corsi or even O'Neill running against the Traitor.
He can run as a Democrat in the Democratic primary. If he wins, his election in November would be virtually assured. At least he could weaken Kerry enough that he wouldn't coast to an easy win in the fall. Kerry would have to choose between running for President in a presidential election year or keep his Senate job. My guess is he'll stay in the Senate til he retires or dies. Uncle Ted's almost pushing up daisies.
It's because he's dead. Just look at him. Looks like he was dug up, and is dead man walking.
If Johnny-boy DOES sue him (and I doubt he will) all of sKerry's service and medical records would be brought out in the discovery phase----and that would spell fini to sKerry having any iota of respect from nearly anyone (except the DUmmies, of course)
Like Corsi said: "Bring it on!"
