"Unfit For Command" Author Considers Challenging Kerry in Senate Race
NEWSMAX.COM ^ | 11/29/2004 | Newsmax

Posted on 11/27/2004 8:42:07 AM PST by kellynla

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.

Doesn't matter. Even if Corsi runs as an Independent, he would give the Traitor nightmares. LOL

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...

Corsi is not a Massachusetts native

Neither is Kerry. Kerry's wife doesn't even legally live in MA. She votes and pays taxes in PA, not MA. As to Kerry himself, the only time he shows up in MA is at election time. Prior to his run for the presidency, if he spent 60 days a year in MA, I would probably be wrong on the high side.

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.

http://www.augustafreepress.com/stories/storyReader$28503

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

http://www.archive-news.net/Kerry/JK_timeline.html

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!

If Corsi does this, I certainly hope he uses more discretion than he did when posting his comments about the Catholic Church on Free Republic.

He had to drop out of sight during the campaign because of his ill-chosen words.

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!"

O'Neill is not really a Conservative Republican, is he? He admitted himself that he has voted for Democrats in the past, and nobody knows what his take is on various issues.

The sense I have about him is that he's a Liberman type candidate who could probably snatch the Senatorial seat from kerry with ease. And considering his efforts in saving the Country from Kerry, that would be the best way to say 'thank you!'

...I don't think Massachusetts will elect a conservative Republican to the U.S Senate.

You are probably right. We did come close to electing Bill Weld, but he wasn't exactly a conservative. :) Although George W did get 37 1/2% of the popular vote here in MA! Didn't Bill Clinton win a presidential election with only 43%? So all things are possible! There is a deep unrest among at least 37 1/2% of the citizens here. That's a start.

What I'd really enjoy seeing is keeping a continued pressure on Kerry to release all those documents. The MSM gave him a total pass on those unreleased doc's. His signature on Standard Form 180 would clear up all this mess about his "honorable" military service, his discharge, his medals and his "wounds," and of course, his post war activities.

Since he made that Vietnam boasting opening statement; "Reporting for Duty" he has done nothing but obfuscate the release of ANY documents that'd help us evaluate his legitimacy for that kind of "Duty".

So by all means: "Bring it on! Jerry Corsi!"

Because he/she would be a RINO... not a lot of difference between a RINO and a democrat.. except a RINO would increase "the count" in the Senate and provide more pubbies on committees(ALL OF THEM) which the alleged RINO could be excluded from.. at least the most important ones..

Maybe your right.. Hmmmm..

I don't mean to nitpick, because I agree with you that Kerry is unfit to be a U.S. Senator, but you don't impeach a Senator. You can by some process kick him out of the Senate, I think, but has that ever been done to anyone in history? Not saying it hasn"t, but I am not aware of it. Just think, Tonk, if the Senate did what was right, would Edward Kennedy have been there, or would he have been kicked out long ago? Even KKK Robert Byrd was still a racist sympathizer after he was elected, many years ago. No surprise, then, that Kerry is still there. But I am all for presenting his truly hideous record to the public, again and again, and I hope it happens.

Well nevertheless he does own property here...but where doesn't he own a property?

But wouldn't the Country love to know about how JF'nKerry had a fire hydrant moved from in front of his Beacon Hill mansion down the road to in front of his neighbor's house because he was getting too many parking tickets for parking next to the hydrant in front of his house when he did come home.

That's fun stuff when the story gets out!

"Has JFnK signed the SF-180 yet?"

The answer is no.

The real question is why no one in the media raise this question.

OR even bothered to ask during the election.

Guess Hanoi Kerry has friends on both the left and right in the media.

Wonder how much money the media made with Hanoi Kerry running?
