CEDAR RAPIDS --- Democratic presidential nominee John Kerry won't be coming to Davenport and Cedar Rapids today. Instead, vice presidential candidate John Edwards will take his place.
Campaign officials say that Kerry's voice is strained, and he needs to conserve it for the debates against President Bush, the first of which is coming up a week from today in Coral Gables, Fla. The three debates are considered a pivotal juncture in the campaign.The Blogspirator recently had laryngitis. It lasted for three weeks.
At the point of one week, he couln't talk at all.
One week from now... the debates.
Maybe it has something do with internal Democrat polls?
The voice box is a mirror which reflects the ills of man. This includes stress. Stress can lead to misuse of the muscles around the vocal cords. This in turn produces hoarseness.
You are blessed, to be from the birthplace of Bix.
>>I saw him last night on TV... he was "horse." Oops, "hoarse"
Well, looks like a horse, of course, of course.

...as heard in that Fri night CBS newscast (last Fri
or was it a wk ago Fri) when Dan-0 sounded like he
suddenly got laryngitis!
I know in the past Bubba got hoarse from constant
speechifying in campaigns. Then again when you talk
on and on and on and on like he did, it wasn't
surprising that eventually the voice would give out.
(Remember his '88 speech at the DNC? When everyone
started clapping when he said, "And in conclusion...")
Damn, we want Kerry to keep talking. That's why Bush agreed to 3 debates, they know the more Kerry spews his venom, the better for Bush. The Dems know this, that is why Kerry did no news conferences for 5 weeks, and when he had to, a couple days ago, he didn't help his cause. (also being overshadowed by blathergate didn't help).
He is so French.
I find the timing to be EXTREMELY suspicious.
I think the boy is building excuses for defeat but the wife thinks the botox got the vo(ice) box.
Edwards? That's not a Breck (sorry...break).
A statement that I'd like to see VPOTUS address at the debate is:
"Mr. Edwards, I'd like to talk about your Senate vote on (issue 1), your vote on (issue 2), your vote on (issue 3, and so on).
"I'd like to talk about it, but there is nothing to talk about, seeing as how you were not there to do the job to which the people of North Carolina elected you.
"Meanwhile, you are still accepting your salary, as is your running mate, for a job that you are not doing, yet you have the temerity and the audacity to accuse the Commander-in-Chief and myself of dishonesty. Your comment?"
(stammering)..."uh....mah dad worked ina meeeeeeeeel..."
Campaign manager? I thought that was his running mate...
.......service in Vietnam. According to your fellow democrats, those who avoided service are cowards. How do you feel about them referring to you as a coward for avoiding your duty to serve? Does that offend you in any way?
Kerry's Laryngitis: A GREAT Thing!
Now he can chill and prepare for the debates, and the media will HAVE to focus on the Golden Boy John Edwards!
Things are breaking perfectly for JFK...
That's gotta tick them off - he's in Columbus today, screeching like his wife.
Does a Botox treatment cure laryngitis?
My husband says sex cures everything. If by chance it doesn't work, then try something else.
I guess Kerry will just have to wait it out and let his immune system deal with it, huh?
I have the idea in my head he's chronically ill in a serious way. Not fair of me, I know. But my intuition says it's so.
He's had prostrate cancer. He was operated on, and they said they got it. Sometimes cancer just won't go away.
I don't think he has anythihng he needs to be president.
