Sorry, but this isn't a story. If Kerry said it, it would be one thing. A musician at a fundraiser, said something without Kerry's permission. Kerry might have been within 500 yards of him when he said it. Ooooh, how exciting!

Come on. Kerry is enough of a tool that you don't have to breathlessly break news that "Moby" used potty mouth language to attack Bush. Is anybody here really shocked? Once Kerry says that he agrees, "Bush is a f&&#%", please come back and tell me.

If this happens at a Democrat rally, nobody cares. If someone at a Republican rally went off about "Hillary F---ing Clinton", the press would make sure to ask the candidate if they *agreed* with the comment.

You lapse into the media double standard.

When Ted Kennedy made his outrageous charges against Bush the other day. the media didn't dismiss them as false or unfounded. They asked "Is Kennedy right?". Nobody ran stories "Is Ken Starr right?" "Is Newt Gingrich right?". They don't want you to even entertain the idea that a Republican claim has credibility. But a Democrat claim, no matter how absurd, has credibility with the media.

Well when the DNC nominee is right next to a man vulgarly insulting what's supposed to be a race between Americans you have a problem. Tact dictates Kerry should have told him to use more class at the very least.

Democrats are catering to the angry thug vote.

This incident will have no impact on the Presidential race...but it is a reminder of the mindset of the people who will be running the country if Bush falters in 2004 (even if most of them will avoid using this kind of language in public).

The 1884 race was determined by this kind of outburst--a Protestant clergyman supporting Blaine, the Republican candidate, denouncing the Democrats as the party of "rum, Romanism, and rebellion" a few days before the election. That remark very probably made the difference in New York, which Grover Cleveland carried by a bit over 1,000 votes, and which gave him the electoral votes needed to win. (The term "Romanism" was offensive to Irish Catholics.)

Like when the Muslims decide to speak out against or admit their support for Muslim terrorism. Ain't gonna happen.

That argument would carry more weight if the "pottymouthed" musician in question haden't been hired to flap his mouth for KERRY'S fundraiser. As for the "Bush is a f&&#%", Kerry will never comment on it. However, he'll hire Moby again, and that is all the comment that is needed. Moby's show is Kerry's show when Kerry hires him. Especially when he gets onstage with him.

There is such a thing as tacit approval, and that is the issue here.

Shocked? no. But we will NOT allow scum and other sewer rats to simply slide on by like you advise.

Maybe if EVERYBODY starts firing back whenever someone talks like they're under an outhouse, this country may get to be a little more civilized like it used to be.

If this language were used in front of me when I had my wife or family with me, that pig would not have any front teeth.

Thanks for the all too uncommon rational response. Right, when Sen Kerry says something like that, which he would not do, that's when he deserves roasting.
