Kerry The Brave ("Filibluster")
National Review Online ^ | 1/26/06 | Byron York

Posted on 01/26/2006 1:51:22 PM PST by frankjr

From a Senate source: Kerry's call for a filibuster comes after his leadership, that is, Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid, decided there won't be one. In other words, Kerry was making a brave, Kos-friendly pronouncement in the total confidence that a filibuster will never happen. And now, word is, he is off to Davos to continue what some Republicans are calling a "filibluster."

Kerry is Overseas - does that mean he will conveniently miss the vote next week?

Let us hope and pray this fool runs again. Wonder if there's any chance he could get the nomination? Nah. We couldn't be that lucky.

Brave Brave Sir Kerry,
Sir Kerry,
Sir Kerry ran away,
Sir Kerry ran away, away,
When danger reared its ugly head,
He bravely turned his tail and fled,
He chickened out. . . . .

Okay, Johnny Boy. Put up or shut up. It only takes one Senator to stage a filibuster. Let's see how fast your compadres slap a cloture vote on you.

Dear John:

Still waiting for the release of your original 1972 Navy Discharge Under Other than Honorable Conditions. You promised to release it a year ago.

Does this guy ever go to work?

Or,

When was the last time he even saw anyone that votes for him? What the hell is he doing overseas that has anything to do with the people that elected the leach in the first place?

Oh yes they are that dumb. Most Freepers know his intent, most rational people know his intent, but they live in an atlernate reality.

The problem for kerry is that they are fickle. He won't come through, and they'll dump him. The Grandstand will backfire on him.

They are really something over there at the DUmp. Don't they know that most other Dems in the senate can't stand Kerry. I doubt dingy harry would even support a filibuster. Not because he like Alito, but because this is a great chance to embarrass Kerry. If he gets enough egg on his face then maybe he will have to STFU from now on. I bet he couldn't get 30 Dems to filibuster.

Kerry / Gore 2008

I don't think Gore would go for that. After all, he won the popular vote in 2000. Kerry only got 47% in 2004.

If those two run together (which would be the most wonderful gift to the USA that I or any conservative could imagine, it would be so much darn fun!), then I think it would have to be:

Gore / Kerry 2008

I think this is great. There will not be a philly-buster and the two nit-wits from Mass, Kerry and Kennedy will look like flaming idiots.

By next week there will be some very, very foul adjectives attached to Mr. Kerry's name on DU once they realize their Useful Idiot is only an idiot.

I agree. They are practically wetting themselves with joy that their hero, Kerry is going to lead a filibuster - without seeming to realize that 1) Kerry isn't even in the country right now, and so he can't lead a filibuster; and 2) there are already more than 60 confirmed votes for cloture. They are into a mutual-mental-masturbation frenzy, imagining scenarios where the other Dem senators will rise to support the virtuous Kerry, and defeat the evil Scalito!

Based on what I am reading, Kerry will accomplish his true gaol - not blocking Alito, that ws never possible. No, his true goal is to gain the support of the left-wing moonbats for his 2008 run. They are practically falling over themselves pledging their undying loyalty for this "bold demonstration of principle!(/Sarcasm)"

Davos - that's where former CNN head Eason Jordan made those remarks about US troops targeting journalists for assassination in Iraq. His scalp hangs proudly on the blogosphere mantle thanks to those remarks. How fitting that Kerry chose the place to once again prove what a flaming ass he is.

What's funny is that the DUmmies and Kos Kiddies are doubtless eating Lurch's drivel up and worshipping him as we speak. They just can't see what a cheap, shameless, pandering whore Kerry is. No insult to whores is intended.

"They are practically wetting themselves with joy that their hero, Kerry is going to lead a filibuster"

That is what is so great about it. The lefties get all worked up about something and believe victory is in their grasp only to end up big losers once again. Whether it's Plamegate, 2004 exit polls, 2000 election or NSA surveillence. It is always most satisfying watching them crash and burn just before they reach climax (so to speak).

Kerry told Tim Russert that he would sign Form 180. The records released, from his signature on Form 180, may not reflect his discharge record from 1972 because "Jimmah Cartah" granted amnesty to every anarchist that tried to destroy the very fabric that holds the United States together. I don't believe that we will ever learn the true nature of John Kerry's discharge in 1972 thanks to Carter.
