Tossing Kerry overboard
Canada Free Press ^ | John Burtis

Posted on 11/17/2006 11:59:13 AM PST by charbookguy

John “Live Shot” Kerry remained in the shadows between two pillars, as his party abandoned him in the building where he had made his bones as a Winter Soldier, humiliating the men in uniform his party would again heedlessly abandon in a foreign field without his help, save as a cipher.

And as Dingy Harry, Dick Turban and Chuck, and that other woman he couldn’t quite place, marched to their destiny, John Kerry scuttled away in the cool darkness of the corridors which once welcomed him with hellos, hand shakes, and how do you do’s.

Later, in the privacy of his darkness, he replayed the DVD of the CD/ROM of the VHS film of the old 16 mm epic of his testimony before the US Senate, and marveled at the wry turns of phrase, his use of Ghengis Khan, and the word pictures he’d painted for an enthralled Democratic Senate about those totally fabricated crimes he’d never seen.

This is amazing since Kerry was the Democrat's MAIN GUY just two years ago. Equally fascinating is the fact that everyone the Left has sent against President George Bush has not only been defeated, but also crushed, including Al Gore, Kerry, Dan Rather, and Jack Murtha. Who’s next, Harry Reid, Nancy Pelosi?

Al Gore was their main man 6 years ago along with Joe Lieberman who has twice been tossed aside and now is having his butt kissed by the democrats.

If only he had had his briefcase with his maps and his beloved cap with him. He could’ve showed them to Chuck and Harry and set the record straight. But he didn’t know that he would be thrown aside like yesterday’s news.

John Kerry could never visualize that he’d be out of time.

A touch of Steyn influence in that article? The whole thing is worth the click.

Yep.

Even if you don't like Joe or his policies, he won't play the democrat party's game.

They figured they could just bowl him over by selecting someone else, but old Joe showed them who had the 'ball'.

My question is, did Schumer really say "Get lost John"?? Not that it'd surprise me.

Kerry is toast. Even his own party can't stand him.

LOL! Great article!

the quick, harsh but unmistakable words hurled his way by the Democratic Senate’s new number three man, Chuck Schumer, who forsook his previous pledges of personal privacy, with a rather mean, “Get lost, John.”

Is that what Schumer really said? PJ-Comix had a DUmmie FUnnies centered on a DU thread wondering what Schumer said. I wonder if this guy really knows . . . though I suppose, whatever the words, that was the tune!

Does Kerry still have it in his head that he's going to run again for pres in 2008? The delusions of arrogance seem to have no bounds.

Interesting picture.

I thought Kerry threw all his medals away??

What's that on his shirt?

Seems like an awful lot of medals for being in Nam only 3 months.

Hmmmmmm....

There is no honor among thieves and Demoncrats. Left on their own they will eat their young.

.....Jeez, pick a medium for goodness sake......

Like John Edwards, the man has a staff that looks out for him, dutifully upgrading the medium of his strawberries and refrigerator keys glory as an ensign.

I believe he will still run as his arrogance is so very great! Will be fun to watch Kerry, Edwards, Gore, Clinton, Obama and others fight with each other.

The author is showing the trail of media that the old film followed from the early days. He's also showing that Kerry used it as his badge of honor, Kerry believes it to be, that Kerry uses as his never ending legacy and bona fides.

Yeah. I thought about it after I posted it.

I think we should go easy on Kerry. After all, we all know the lefties would NEVER stoop so low as to make fun of and misrepresent a picture of George W. Bush waving or talking, right?
