One thing about Liveshot, he knows when to back a loser
Boston Herald ^ | 05/08/09 | Howie Carr

Posted on 05/08/2009 12:04:48 AM PDT by raccoonradio

Sen. John Forbes Kerry has spent the week futilely trying to prop up two of his oldest, dearest friends - the Boston Globe and a convicted kiddie-porn pervert named Wade Sanders.

You know about the Globe. Despite Kerry’s Senate hearings into the implosion of arrogant left-wing newspapers, El Globo continues to circle the drain.

You’ve heard less about Wade Sanders, or nothing at all if you rely on the Globe. He’s a liberal and a pervert and a criminal, and he’s been a close pal of John Kerry’s for 43 years. Nothing to see here, folks, move along.

Anyway, Liveshot’s fellow Swift Boat veteran just got 37 months, despite the junior senator’s letter (on stationery with the Capitol on top) to the judge attesting to Sanders’ good character.

Liveshot said he was shocked, shocked to learn of the despicable kiddie-porn charges against Sanders, who at the time of his arrest was a “senior adviser” to the lieutenant governor of California, a Democrat. “I find myself surprised,” Liveshot wrote. “Completely baffled . . .”

And not for the first time, either.

Wade Sanders got bagged with over 600 images of kiddie porn on his computer, and then claimed he was viewing them for research purposes. Stop me if you’ve heard this one before.

Then Kerry’s pal offered an even more hackneyed defense:

Bush did it! That’s right, Sanders told the judge he didn’t start sampling kiddie porn until after he tried to defend Sen. Kerry against the Swift Boat Veterans for Truth. That made him a “target” of those rascally Republicans.

“That experience caused a serious resurgence of the PTSD (post-traumatic stress syndrome) symptoms . . . I encountered (kiddie porn) while accidentally downloading what I thought was a comedy video.”

Alas, as The Wall Street Journal noted, the chronology doesn’t work. The Swift Boat Veterans for Truth, who supposedly drove John Kerry’s pal to kiddie porn, weren’t formed until May 2004. Sanders began downloading his “comedy videos” in November 2003.

Sen. Kerry, it’s too late now to save your perv pal, but maybe, just maybe it’s not too late to throw the Globe a life preserver. Not with another of your windy perorations, but with cash - Mama Tee’s cash. Pinch Sulzberger would unload the rag for a buck.

Liveshot, you could be the next publisher of the Globe. Those Ivy League bust-outs will be lining up to mindlessly do your bidding - just like they’ve been doing for the last 40 years, come to think of it.

That's how we found you too, Lurch. You stinking traitor to your country.

A liveshot of course is when a reporter stands up at an event, for example, and delivers a live report. Kerry LOVES being on TV so he inserts himself into every liveshot he can, IIRC.

Thx raccoon...love Howie Carr and his Live Shot website is a hoot! The infamous caller that suffered a JFKerry line jumping:
One talk-show caller...recalled standing behind a police barricade in 2002 as the Rolling Stones played the Orpheum Theater, a short limousine ride from Kerry's Louisburg Square mansion. The caller, Jay, said he began heckling Kerry and his wife as they attempted to enter the theater. Finally, he said, the senator turned to him and asked him the eternal question.
“Do you know who I am?”
“Yeah,” said Jay. “You're a gold-digger.”

More on the Wade Sanders story, which the failing Boston Globe has completely ignored.

Yup! Howie has mentioned that!

And of course Howie occasionally plays a soundbite of someone saying “Do you know who I am?” (It’s taken from the Godfather. Moe Green, played by Alex Rocco, nee Alex Petricone—a one time gangster himself—says angrily to
Michael Corleone, “Do you know who I am? I’m Moe Green.
I made my bones when you were going out with cheerleaders.” So that’s where it came from

It’s Bush’s fault.....unbelievable.

Hope this is just the tip of iceberg that will soon be evident to all.

Vietnam comrade Wade Sanders to intro Kerry

By Otto Kreisher

Copley News Service

2004-08-14

Thirty-eight years ago, when they both were young Navy officers and a bit naive, Wade Sanders and John Kerry shared pizzas and beer and became friends while training in San Diego. Their naivete vanished, but their friendship deepened when both later commanded swift boats on dangerous, but seemingly senseless, missions in Vietnam.

Thursday night, Sanders joined a dozen other graying men who had shared Kerry’s Vietnam combat experiences in helping to introduce the new Democratic presidential nominee to the nation.

It was by now a familiar role for Sanders, who had supported his friend’s successful campaign for the nomination and, more recently, has tried to shield him from the attacks of other veterans angered by Kerry’s high-profile opposition to the war in the early 1970s.

“Many people are displeased with John Kerry’s protest against the war. I have no problem with that. We honor them as veterans,” Sanders said in a recent interview. “But they have used half-truths to discredit Kerry.”
Sanders, who stayed in the Navy after Vietnam and retired as a captain in the Navy Reserves, approved of Kerry’s protest of the war, which both had concluded was sacrificing young men in an poorly run and unwinnable conflict.

Sanders had gone to Vietnam before Kerry and already had lost a crewmember. He told Kerry shortly after his arrival in country from swift boat training at in in San Diego: “What we’re doing is really crazy... It’s not what we thought it was going to be at Coronado.”

After his active duty Navy tour, Sanders became a lawyer in San Diego. He served as a deputy assistant Navy secretary for reserve affairs for former President Bill Clinton. While in that office, he helped lead an effort to restore a sunken swift boat as a memorial to the thousands of sailors who had served and sacrificed aboard those lightly protected craft.

Kerry and Sanders joined with other swift boat veterans in the “Last River Run Reunion” when the memorial was dedicated in 1995 at the Washington Navy Yard.

My tagline re 0b0z0 would probably be appropriate for Live Shot Moi Kerry.

Kerry’s other good friend and godfather to one of his girls, Peter Yarrow of Peter, Paul and Mary would today be described as a sexual pervert.
Yarrow campaigned with Kerry in 04.
I know, what are the odds that two of Kerry’s good buddies would be deviants ?

” ( Yarrow )Pleaded guilty to taking “immoral and improper liberties” with a 14-year-old girl back in 1970.

As reported at the time, the girl and her 17-year-old sister went to Yarrow’s hotel room seeking an autograph. Yarrow answered the door naked
and made sexual advances that stopped short of intercourse.
The 14-year-old resisted his advances but did not call for help.
Yarrow served three months of a one- to three-year prison sentence
and was pardoned by Carter in 1981.
Peter Yarrow was married to the niece of Democratic Senator Eugene J. McCarthy at the time of the pardon. “
http://www.theawarenesscenter.org/Yarrow_Peter.html

“And what about the music on Kerry’s bus?
Before the Iowa caucuses, Washington Post reporter Ceci Connelly described the candidate
hanging out on the bus with Peter Yarrow, his old friend from Peter, Paul, and Mary.
“Pedro, sing us a song,” Kerry ordered one day.
Yarrow picked up a guitar and began to play and sing — and later waxed nostalgic
about the antiwar rallies he attended way back when with Kerry and Eugene McCarthy.

Earlier, Connelly wrote, when Yarrow sang “Puff the Magic Dragon” at an event in a private home in Ames, Iowa,
“Kerry lifted his fingers to his mouth for a quick toke on an imaginary joint.
You can almost see his thick mane of silver hair returning to the shaggy brown do of those days.”

Thanks for the ping. I hope that Hanoi John Kerry (actually, his wife) doesn’t buy the Boston Globe. It’s bad enough as is, and hopefully, dying.

Oh, I don't know. Two or three years of bleeding red ink into the Globe might sap the Kerrys' support for the Tides Foundation and their various other socialist ventures.
