Because Max Cleland was disabled in war, are we not allowed to criticize him? Just because he lost two legs, an arm, and his sense of decency in Vietnam, are we not allowed to point out that he is a scum sucking, backstabbing son of a bitch? He takes a job from President Bush, then libels him in a disgusting display. Thanks to Rich Lowry at National Review.
Letter to John Kerry August 25, 2004 Senator John Kerry304 Russell Senate Office BuildingWashington, DC 20510 Dear Senator Kerry, We are pleased to welcome your campaign representatives to Texas today. We honor all our veterans, all whom have worn the uniform and served our country. We also honor the military and National Guard troops serving in Iraq and Afghanistan today. We are very proud of all of them and believe they deserve our full support.
Everyone knows that John F. Kerry refuses to allow anyone to view any part of his official military records. The Truth Laid Bear blog has found another Kerry cover-up: his contributors list. Even though federal election law requires that candidates for all public office publicize their contributor list and how much each contributor gives, Kerry considers himself above the law. Bush, whose military records are public record, lists almost 100% of his contributors, while Kerry’s
Never open a bottle of wine unless you intend to finish it.
Rush Limbaugh started down this path on radio last week, but Christopher Hitches beautifully finishes the job in Slate, brought to my attention by Poliblog. A logical person–a professor of philosophy, let’s say, or math–mush cringe trying to defend Kerry’s arguments that his service in Vietnam makes him more deserving of the office of the President of the United States than its current occupant. Here’s why: Kerry and most Democrats consider the US to be the
Oil output is up and demand is down. The reasonable price for oil is about $35.00/bbl. based on historic supply and demand balances. But reason has been thrown to the wind by a combination of pessimism, panic, stupidity, and hardy greed. The best way to punish the stupid and mean is to greatly reduce consumption. Here’s some easy ways. Tax-free days for telecommuting. Absolve employers of all payroll tax burdens on a day-for-day basis for
Just when I was ready to hand the election to Kerry thanks to the SwiftVets, the DNC makes me look stupid. I had no idea that they would do something as stupid as waste an entire Sunday trying to convince people that George W. Bush ghost-wrote the SwiftVets book, but that’s just what they did. Stupid, stupid Democrats. You were winning this one, you morons! Instead of being “presidential” and adult about it by having
A powerful union allowed to run amok in the St. Louis area’s fire protection district has made a lot of firefighters rich. It’s a little frustrating that the firemen in the safest districts seem to make the most money. It’s more alarming that a district that was better paid than any area union district unionized last year. That will only drive up the cost of fire protection for everyone. As with so many unions, expect
The swift boat veterans who penned the anti-Kerry book have accomplished two things: made themselves look petty and made John Kerry look strong. Hey, amateur politicians: Never give your opponent the opportunity to take a stand in defense of himself, his family, or his military service. Kerry got no bounce from the DNC convention, but he will get 10 points from the swiftvets by this time next week. Bush will be down 12 when the
The last time an American girl won the Olympic Gold Medal for All-Around in gymnastics, a Republican president won re-election in a landslide against a liberal Democrat from Massecheusetts. With the GOP convention around the corner, Kerry’s bounce (or whatever he got from the DNC convention) is gone–Bush and Kerry are dead even. Reagan was only slightly ahead of Mondale at this point in 1984, when Mary Lou became the first American to win the
