John Kerry filed a complaint with the FEC (Federal Election Commission)
claiming that the advertisement (above), sponsored by the Swift Boat
Veterans for Truth, was contrary to campaign rules and Kerry wanted
the ad "shut down" for that reason. It's doubtful this tactic
will work -- that pesky First Amendment and all.
and think about this for a moment. If, in fact, the allegations by
the Swift Boat Veterans for Truth were false, Kerry could bring libel
and slander suits of absolutely Galactic proportions against all connected
with the ad(s). Kerry could easily and inexpensively seek and be granted
an emergency restraining order preventing the ads from being shown.
The restraining order could be procured in as little as 24 hours at
a cost of as little as $200. Such a thing has been done against us,
even when we were telling the truth! (it was subsequently overturned).
Logical minds must ask: Why hasn't Kerry done this? Could it be because
the Swift Boat Veterans for Truth ads are truthful and
can't be stopped by straightforward legal methods?
We find that
the skills needed to judge another man's character have atrophied
in the American population. The reasons are many; among them is the
country's relative affluence. An affluent population is one which
may have less direct interaction with the real world. Affluence allows
a populace to insulate itself from many of the hardships of reality.
Unfortunately, those very hardships are what tend to build character.
Remove the obstacles from a person's life, and you rob them of the
ability to grow strong. Two cases in point: Jessica Simpson and Paris
Hilton, arguably two of the dumbest, most valueless human beings on
We feel John
Kerry's character is as transparent and insubstantial as Saran Wrap.
We believe it was flawed from birth. We believe there is no hope for
redemption. We are terrified that a man of such weak character and
obvious disingenuousness could be even considered
for any managerial position, let alone the post he has applied for.
We feel pretty-much the same way about Hillary Clinton and Martha
Stewart, if anyone cares.
that if you placed John Kerry in a situation in which he must beg
employment from, say, test pilots or astronauts or deep sea divers
or cops or loggers or commercial fishermen or firefighters or coal
miners or public utility linemen or real people engaged in any of
a thousand other occupations which require at least a certain degree
of character in order to succeed or, indeed, to stay
alive, John Kerry would be spending his days in the unemployment
line. He may make a passable short-order cook. He hasn't the True
Grit to be President of anything.
ago, while riding a barge to Alaska, we set out to identify and label
what it was that we, test pilots and astronauts and deep sea divers
and cops and loggers and commercial fishermen and firefighters and
coal miners and public utility linemen, found distasteful about smarmy
politicians and greedy bankers and sue-happy lawyers and the ilk --
it was this: They tend to have no heart. We don't believe
John Kerry has sufficient heart to lead anything but
the girls' high school basketball team.
these are inflammatory words, even "fightin'" words to some.
Those who disagree are more than welcome to voice their own opinions
on their own website. But please don't misunderstand us -- we're not
much more fond of George Bush, documented drunk driver and, by all
accounts, alcoholic asshole, at least before he "found God".
We know there
are decent, honorable, capable, wise, straight-thinking human beings
on this planet capable of doing a fine job as President. There are
countless Viet Nam vets who didn't lie to get medals, who stood up
and by God fought like men; there are countless qualified men and
women who would have never, ever engaged in drunk driving,
who are balanced and moral and strong... We're saddened that it appears
to be impossible for those types to get within five light-years of
the position of President of the United States. We're saddened that
the only options presented to us as voters are weasels and drunks
and liars and con-artists and thieves and womanizers and other assorted
genetic blanks who, without the happenstance of wealth and position,
would have failed even as Burger King franchisers. We're sorry we
have no one to vote for. We see the choices as Satan or The Devil.
We refuse to help either one become leader of this country.
But if you
still like John Kerry, consider this: If you elect him,
and if, (Allah forbid), something "untoward" happens to
the guy (Teresa beats him to death, let's say), you've then actually
made John Edwards President of the United States.
And if that doesn't uncurl your pubic hair, you're brain
2, 2004, George W. Bush was, as most of us know, overwhelmingly re-elected
President of the United States.
are "stunned and amazed".
One European magazine states:
"How can so many Americans be so dumb!?"
Let us try
to inject some sense into this situation:
(1) No one
WANTED George W. Bush! --At least not in great numbers.
(2) We weren't
given a better alternative!
feel they "must" vote---even if they dislike both candidates.
DID. NOT. WANT. to vote for George. But what was their alternative?
John Kerry? A whining, disingenuous cry-baby who couldn't even manage
to put forth his purported "plan" --he could only berate
Bush's existing plans? His running mate (The Face) was about as smarmy
as they get---John Edwards was perhaps the poorest possible choice
of running mates and we have to wonder at the intelligence of anyone,
let alone an entire campaign team, that would choose such an individual.
Add that silly choice to America's unarguable loathing of Teresa Heinz
Kerry; now add to that John Kerry's outrageously counter-productive
decision to have, of all people on Earth, Bill Clinton
stump for him in the last days, and who's left to vote for? If you're
applying for a job as manager of the local daycare, you don't list
PeeWee Herman as a character reference; to do so would be stupid.
And it is exactly this stupidity that showed up in every aspect of
John Kerry's campaign; it was manifest in his choice of running mates,
in his choice of wives, in his choice of references. The fact that
Kerry would allow such stupid tactics to mold his campaign means the
man isn't smart enough to lead a country.
that the Democratic party could have easily off'd George
Bush had they provided America with an even remotely workable alternative.
So now we have what we have. Of the 59,459,765 voters who voted for
George Bush, we suggest that only a small percentage of them actually
wanted George Bush. They just hated John Kerry more.
