John Kerry's Winning Strategy (Very Funny)

10/9/2005 John Kerry’s Winning Strategy

“Go long!”

Our friends at Newsmax recently sent out an email alert that deals with, among other issues, a new behind-the-scenes documentary about the ‘04 Kerry campaign. This film looks hilarious, in large part because it was originally intended to reveal the winning strategy behind Kerry’s White House run. Here are some delightful details:

It may surprise you, but both John Kerry and Ted Kennedy believe Kerry is the frontrunner for the Democratic nod in 2008.

If the pair had any prayer of this, their hopes have been dashed with the release of a new documentary film made during John Kerry’s presidential campaign. Pundits say it has torpedoed any remaining chance he has of running for the White House again.

Kerry allowed filmmaker Steve Rosenbaum to film the inner workings of the Kerry campaign and what Kerry’s team believed would be a victorious run for the presidency.

“Hut …”

Now Rosenbaum has released the documentary, Inside the Bubble - and Democrats are likely to give it a decisive thumbs-down. “The film has made such painful viewing that many Democratic insiders - especially those close to rival 2008 candidates - feel Kerry’s hopes of the White House have been forever ended,” The Guardian newspaper reports.

Unflattering clips from the film show Kerry pretending to interview himself, and babbling in Italian as he waited for a real interview to begin. Senior aides are shown cursing and shouting at reporters. One shot shows Hillary Clinton rolling her eyes after Kerry slips up during a TV debate against George Bush.

In a bizarre moment, top Kerry aide Jim Loftus rants about an advance team’s inability to get a pony into a hotel room for a birthday celebration. He fumes: “When I was an advance guy, if someone said ‘get a pony on the 10th floor of this hotel in four hours’ … I would have said: ‘What color eyes should it have?’”

“He rolls out of the pocket …” On election day, as early exit polls pointed to a Kerry victory, Loftus hands over the data and remarks: “They have a word for that, and they usually write it in big black print on the front of newspapers and they call it a (expletive deleted) landslide.” Another aide comments: “I hear they are crying in the White House.”

Bush went on to win by three million votes.

The Guardian states: “There is little doubt that many Democrats (or many potential Democratic voters) will watch the film in horror. The impression is of a campaign and a candidate who did not really know where it was going or trying to say.”

Naturally I’m curious about the pony Kerry needed for his birthday party. Did Theresa know about this?

Too funny! Maybe that explains his flip-flop problem.

Is the film already out?

If it is out does anyone know where it is playing.

The funny thing is, Democrats had been preparing for this for four years, and they still had no clue what they were doing. What a bunch of buffoons.

LOL, the title itself is hilarious!

Loved the pictures on the site, all of which I've seen as "Caption This" threads here on FR! They should have also had the big blue condom picture of Kerry the day he visited NASA, too, though!

It was audio that was picked up by CNN when they were doing the big balloon drop during the Democrat convention. Major snafu. I think I even got to hear it live, although I didn't have cable at the time.

Tee-hee, me too, and apparently we can throw the Gore-on into the equation, too! There's a whole lotta "love" between the Clintons and Gore, ya know.

What was the actual goof? Is there any visual footage? All I heard was profanity.

The Republican Convention was exponential better than the Dems. More hopeful, more energetic, more joyous and optimistic, everyone having a good time...

There just weren't enough balloons falling down on Kerry, his goofball running mate whose name escapes me, and their spouses. One or two of the networks happened to play the audio from a convention organizer playing just when he was yelling at the people above the convention floor to get the balloons to drop right.

HA HA HA HAAA!!! I didn't see that part, not wanting to watch all of the gloom and doom Dem convention. But I wished I had seen that!

Maybe it'll be in this movie.

The trailer is edited for language. The film clip is NOT (and it does have quite a bit of bad language).

Well I'm not sure what the documentary can do along these lines that the campaign itself hasn't already done but who knows......

ROFLOL, just watched that trailer.

I'd forgotten all about that Timber Company thing. "I own a timber company? That's news to me. Need any wood?"

Hillary rolls her eyes, and you see the Kerry people scrambling around on cell phones. "Timber company? What the @#%& was he talking about?"

Bwah Ha Haa!!!

There was a website that had more clips, but I couldn't find it on Google. It went into more detail about the pony thing, and it shows that blonde punk throwing a temper tantrum because they couldn't deliver.

At the end, he goes on a rant about the staffer, looking into the camera and talking about how he confronted the guy about it, saying "You suck...you're going to be mediocre the rest of your life." All because he didn't get him his precious pony.

As I was watching it, I was like, "This guy never left high school." Then I was thinking, "He called the other guy mediocre? Wonder what he's doing now?"

LOL.

The first trailer is safe to watch...you know what they're saying but it's bleeped out. The film clip is unedited, and the guy throws around bad language like it's going out of style.

Sounds like he rehearsed that line in front of the mirror.

Anyone that belittles a staffer like that in front of others is not worthy of anything.

He's still a creap.
