Deconstructing Kerry, Part I

Reading Time: 1 minutes

Can anyone look upon the fading figure of John Kerry without feeling a sense of pity as for a man who’s lost his family and home?  His serious face, always looking a bit pained with concern, now expresses a sad displeasure for life itself.  To make matters worse, Howard Dean, the child politician — childlike in size, bearing, countenance, temperament, mentality, and world view — has not only stolen Kerry’s media-given title of Man to Beat, he has now taken Kerry’s Biblical allusion:  Job. 

Imagine the insult Kerry must feel when Dean declares,

Even more bizarre, or so it must have seemed to Senator Kerry, was the effect of the war, for which he voted.  The more successful our campaign in Iraq, the less his fellow Democrats liked him.  Had we lost the war, one assumes that the rank-and-file Democrats would have supported a warmonger candidate.  But as our victory became apparent, the Dems fled to the two candidates who opposed the war in the first place:  Dean and Clark.  That left the

Hillary Clinton came to St. Louis today to make Gandhi jokes.  First, I  live in St. Louis and didn’t know she was coming.  Second, she showed up in Iraq the day after the President, now she shows up in St. Louis the day after the President.  Pattern?

Howard Dean potentially faces criminal charges for releasing secret security plans for the Yankee Nuclear Power plant after 9/11/01.  He won’t release records of meetings from his 11 years as governor, but he’s pretty fast and loose with national security plans whose compromise could give terrorists the information they need to overcome that security.  And people want him as Commander-in-Chief?

It was 6 degrees in St.Louis when I woke up this morning.  Apparently, the answer to global warming is to have Hillary Clinton get out more.

NEA: Leave the Kids Behind

Reading Time: 1 minutes

The National Education Association, perhaps America’s most active liberal political action committee, continues to decry the No Child Left Behind law.  The NEA’s chief complaints seem to be

  • It costs too much money
  • It set the bar too high
  • Its timeline is too aggressive
  • It encourages teachers to teach children to pass tests

My questions to the NEA are

  • How much money would satisfy your insatiable greed?
  • What does the law require that students shouldn’t learn?
  • Which graduating class should be the first that your teachers teach properly?
  • What’s wrong with students passing tests?

The NEA does not concern itself with the quality of eduction in America, but exclusively with a) the quality of life of its members and employees, and b) the perpetual advance of left-wing causes.  The sooner the NEA is weeded out of the garden of education, the sooner American students will achieve grades on a par with those in every other industrialized nation.

Dr. Dean Insider Trader?

Reading Time: 1 minutes reports that the doctor may have an insider trading scandal to deal with.  Keeping score, Dean is now a hypocrite on:

  • Dean wants the Bush administration to release minutes of meetings with energy executives, but he refuses to release minutes of his meetings with energy executives.
  • Dean wants religion divorced from politics, but he wants to talk about what a bang-up Christian he is while campaigning in the South.
  • Dean wants Bush to spend more on homeland security, but he refused to spend what was necessary to make his state’s nuclear power plant safe and secure.
  • Dean wants Bush to impose draconian rules to prevent stock and mutual fund abuses, but he traded stocks on insider information in 1991. 

Before ridiculing the Bush administration, Dr. Dean should consult his own history.
