Kerry Staffers Brace for New Film
Taegan Goddard's Political Wire ^ | September 26, 2005 | Lloyd Grove

Posted on 09/26/2005 9:47:02 AM PDT by granite

Lloyd Grove says Sen. John Kerry (D-MA) loyalists "are kicking themselves for cooperating last year with filmmaker Steve Rosenbaum on Inside the Bubble, a potentially devastating behind-the-scenes look at the Massachusetts senator's failed presidential campaign."

"I'm also told that Hillary Clinton partisans are licking their chops to see the film, which 'could end up being the silver bullet that kills Kerry's presidential chances for 2008."

The film won't be seen publicly until Thursday, but a press release claims the movie "turns a harsh but deeply revealing mirror on the campaign ... a disorganized, contentious, self-absorbed team that thought they could win by 'not making mistakes,' and keeping their candidate in the public eye without clarifying a position on anything."

Key highlights from those who've seen it privately: "Clinton scowling and rolling her eyes over an apparent Kerry gaffe during a presidential debate; Kerry pretending to interview himself and babbling in Italian while waiting for a real interview to begin; Sen. Joe Biden (D-DE) cursing at reporters during a campaign stop, and Kerry message guru Robert Shrum confidently declaring a few days before the 2004 election: 'Zogby just announced who's gonna win. Us!'"

This should be good for a chuckle Thursday.

I gotta say that even babbling in Italian sounds better than Kerry's babbling in English.

But then I've never heard Kerry babbling in Italian.

Is Kerry's 'Italian' worse than Al Gore's 'Spanish'?

Kerry's chances of being Fosterized are much greater than any presidential chance he has in 2008.

If his campaign was comprehensively covered, this should turn out to be the best comedy of the year. I for one am looking forward to it.

I heard they were being filmed. As I recall, there's one point at the Grand Canyon during a hike one of Kerry's daughters is far ahead of the group. One of kerry's aides tries to convince her to join the group and for film crews, and she rips him apart in reply.

All true of course. However, what the SwiftBoat Vets showed more importantly, was that Kerry was a lying self promoting SOB.

He doesn't. Anti-Bush forces were so bored and annoyed with Kerry, few of them could manage to rouse themselves to do anything for the Kerry campaign. I'm sure in areas where the weather was bad on election day, many of them decided not to bother. Only Republicans would like to see Kerry run again.

The comment about Kerry's chances in 2008: He had zero chance of being the Democrat nominee even before this film. Why do people seriously mention his candidacy as a possibility?

Ooooo yea! "Serenity"'s gonna ROCK. I just finished watching all the DVD's. I can't believe they only did a single season, it's one of the best Sci-Fi shows ever made. It's wantonly individualistic, frontier, free-market, and quite witty and humorous. It had it all!

Well, at least the movie's here, and Sci-Fi channel will be buying the future rights for a reconstitution of the series (so I hear).

Kerry who?

He's the guy who won the Vietnam War singlehandedly, when he went on a secret Christmas 1968 mission to Cambodia for President Nixon with a CIA team.

Except that, well, it wasn't quite Cambodia, but it was on the river, close to the border.

Except that, well, it wasn't quite Christmas, but was around Christmas or before or after.

Except that, well, Nixon wasn't exactly President, only President-elect at that time.

Except that, well, it was with the CIA but it was so secret he still, in 2004, couldn't talk about, even though he did (and may still) carry the CIA hat in his briefcase.

Seared in his memory, it was.

I'm happy to see it discussed! He has a snowball's chance in hell, I'd just as soon see him in the Rat race just to divide them up. Face it, he'd be bloody good fun to watch, as he rips into Hillary during the debates, looking to pay back all the Clintoons' "support" of his 2004 candidacy.

The longer Kerry looks viable, the better it is for us!

Forgot to say, that's what happens when you have a corrupt soul to hide and you allow someone other than a sold-out M. Moore type to do the "creative" work.

Hillary and Crew know better than to make that mistake. She's so much like Stalin in that regard.

I wonder if its in the film where, after the phony exit polls came out, one of Kerrys stooges asked if he could be the first one to call him Mr. President. LOL. Someone on the inside said everyone was running around talking about who was going to get to work in the WH and who was going to Washington and who wasn't. This, based on phony exit polls! What a bunch of dorks!

Remember the Newsweek "behind the scenes of the campaign" bit that ran right AFTER the election? At one point, he said "I can't believe this guy is beating me," or words to that effect (Ironic words: SNL had a sketch spoofing the '88 prez debate, with Dana Carvey imitating Bush I: "Stay the course. Thousand points of light," etc. Dukakis (Jon Lovitz) looks straight at the camera: "I can't believe I'm losing to this guy".

Which is what I like to tell liberals these days: You thought Bush was such a dummy, but if that's true, what does that say about Kerry who couldn't beat him in the election? If Kerry was so good he should have won, and won SOUNDLY.

The only way a liberal can win an election is to not clarify his position on anything. This is nothing new.

The moonbats who supported him still have Kerry stickers on their cars, and some MORE stickers appeared after the election. Part of it is "I'm so smart, I voted for the 'right guy' even though he lost" but part of it is definitely "2008!!" Deluded.

It's amazes me how much abuse the MSM will take from Democrats, like the time Clinton took Sam Donaldson to the woodshed for asking an uncomfortable question at a presidential press conference. How they can deny bias with a straight face always cracks me up.

Classic SNL '88 commercials:

[ show each President's head encircled over a North European country ]

Announcer: Franklin Delano Roosevelt was of white northern European heritage.

Thomas Jefferson was of white northern European heritage.

John F. Kennedy was of white northern European heritage.

George Herbert Walker Bush is of white northern European heritage.

[ show Dukakis' encircled just above the Mediterranean Sea ]

But Michael Dukakis?

Bush. He's whiter.



[ show image of each President standing before a police line-up replica ]

Announcer: John F. Kennedy was six-foot-one.

Abraham Lincoln was six-foot-five.

Franklin Delano Roosevelt was six-foot-one.

George Bush is six-foot-two.

But Michael Dukakis is five-foot-five-and-a-half.

Bush. He's taller.



[ show each President's head in front of an American flag ]

Announcer: John F. Kennedy's parents were born in America.

Abraham Lincoln's parents were born in America.

Franklin Delano Roosevelt's parents were born in America.

George Bush's parents were born in America.

[ show Dukakis' head in front of a Greek flag ]

But Michael Dukakis' parents?

Bush. His parents were born in America.
