Jim Lehrer, on his NewsHour program on PBS on Friday night, ridiculed John Kerry for calling for filibuster from "the ski slopes." Click the link above for the entire transcript. Liberal Mark Shields and conservative columnist David Brooks both joined Lehrer for some Kerry bashing.
This exchange is making left-wing radicals furious, who are now calling Mark Shields a "Republican stooge" and a "Fox News Democrat." One leftist website had this to say to Mark Shields, long time CNN analyst:
"This is the most despicable performance in your long career of pretending to be a Democrat. If you love George Bush with such devotion, then go register as a Republican today. Better yet, pick up a gun and go fight his disastrous war in Iraq. And give your "Democratic" spot on PBS to a REAL Democrat - someone with the cojones to stand up to the Emperor Without Clothes and his mouthpiece, Jim Lehrer!"

I've been away. "Kerry was in Switzerland?? I thought he was in Vietnam!!!!"" Damn!!
"What on earth did Matthews say to be called a Rove stooge?"
It was something along the line of Osama sounding like the Democrats in his latest tape. This was taken as a smear on Democrats.
He was in Switzerland before he was in Vietnam.
DONGgggggggggg.... "You Rang"? Yes...Lurch my boy.....remember who you is.....it's not the butlers job to be an arrogant pontificator. Now go and clean up the dungeon like a good Lurch should.... "uuuuuuhhhhhhhhhhhh!"
That is just loony. But what do you expect from moonbats.
This is their essence, A.C.:
---Pro-freedom of speech...as long as it agrees with their own.
---Pro-military...but only if it is a Democrat who fought in a war that he hated.
---Pro-life...unless it hasn't been born yet.
---Pro-gun control...so long as they control it.
---Pro-freedom of religion...so long as it is the one religion that they believe will kill them if they stand against it(Islamofacism)
---Anti-torture...unless they get to administer it
---Freedom to protest...but not to BE protested.
---Pro-term limits...unless it is a Clinton.
---Pro-high taxes...for everyone else.
---Pro-war...when THEY start it
---Pro-dictator...unless it's Bush (whom THEY call a dictator, not me)
---Pro-warrantless spying...unless it's done by a Republican president, when THEY are not in control of either house of Congress)
Shall I go on? Must I go on?
YOU ARE CORRECT, SIR! HA HA HA HA! HO HO HO HO HO! /Ed McMahon
That really came in handy didn't it?
Do you think he's always at some place enjoying himself at the expense of his wife? Does anyone know how often he took these "trips away from home for pleasure" before marrying "The Heiress"? I have read he used to bum places to sleep!
Did brooks really say that?
BTW it's a large file, so it will load slow if you're not on fast connect.
I agree. That could be the motivation for the NY Times to run two editorials which squish Kerry like a vise would.
The first editorial screamed for a Democrat with a spine to get behind a filibuster.
After Kerry called for a filibuster, the Times's second editorial called his attempts "awkward" and "quixotic."
re: 93: Tell these guys to get a room.
You don't say?
He looks like a cross between one of those Code Pinko she-men and the guy that plays Harry Potter (Daniel Radcliffe). But then again, when you've got all that scratch, who cares what you look like?
BTW, where is Gore? Did he show at the summit?
I'd say Kerry and Gore bear out Mo Udall's assessment, don't they?
Shhh! They are Rovian plants working under deep cover.
Yeah, and Cindy Al-Sheehadi is a moderate, middle of the road voter..
"Hey Ter-ay-zah, listen to this..."
(cupping hands around his mouth while atop a Swiss ski slope) ... "I was in Vietnam ---- (echo) I was in Vietnam --- (echo) I was in Vietnam."
