- Things are getting a little bizarre in this 2004 election, and we
haven't even gotten to the main event yet.
Multi-millionaire blueblood Kerry is
That's not even the real bizarre part.
Look at this quote from Kerry's recent
CBS' 60 Minutes. Asked about marrying someone who
possessed such a vast fortune, Kerry replied:
"At first, I was a little bit, actually,
sort of intimidated by that. I think itís one of the reasons I was
cautious. But then, you know, emotions and feelings take precedence,
and you take what comes with it. Iím not worried about it."
Look at this guy. "...you take
what comes with it." Wow, he loved her enough to be willing to
suffer with the fact that she had millions upon millions upon
Just to make sure we didn't miss this
bizarre episode of undeniable BS, he continued:
"No, but I mean, what I mean is, thatís
my point. That I didnít worry. You know, just, it doesnít matter
anymore. But I canít tell you in an honest way that I didnít have to
step over that kind of barrier, sure."
Wow, our hero in action. He had to
"step over that kind of barrier." You know, the fact that the
woman had millions and millions and millions.
This passes stupidity or pandering -
trying to make himself seem like something other than a
multi-millionaire money marrier - and crosses the line into flat out
insanity. This man, who says he wants to be our President had
the tough decision if he should actually marry the woman he loved
because... oh horror... she was rich.
Pandering to make himself sound like an
everyman when he is really the bluest of blueblood millionaires?
Hmm... you be the judge.
Did you hear George W. Bush released a
new initiative? His first honestly named policy. It's
called No Corporate Ass Left Unkissed.
Ok, he didn't do that but he did the
even more bizarre act of announcing that his election year plan
would be to suck up the media air by launching a new major offensive
in Afghanistan in June. Yes, our troops have been there for
two years, but, oops, a few months before the election we are going
to finally have a real offensive and... how about this... in all
likelihood capture Osama just before the big election day.
Yeah, this is obviously one of those
farfetched conspiracy theories. It would be impossible to find
any reliable sources to corroborate such a horrible, amoral plan on
President Bush's part.
Well, except these:
Atlanta Journal Constitution
I know, I know, that's just four major
Hold on, did we say that Osama would be
caught "in all likelihood." Nope, check the Guardian article
above. The US Military is "sure" that Osama will be caught
before the election.
So our President's plan is to run a few
nice TV commercials... no, to hell with that. His plan is to
use our military to suck up the media attention, break out the
capture of Osama they had been holding back on, and then, as
previously planned, hold their convention later than ever held so it
coincides with the anniversary of 9/11 so Bush can walk right over
to the convention and brag about... how he let 3,000 Americans be
slaughtered on his watch - and then waited three years, for
political purposes, to catch the guy responsible.
Wow, hard to pass up that sales pitch.
But wait, this 2004 election has taken
an even more bizarre twist. General Wesley Clark is actually
starting to get some decent press coverage - only in local papers of
course, but still, this is an alarming change that might require the
quick planning of another war somewhere.
I mean, look at this article from the
Freelance Star in Fredricksburg, Virginia. They actually
let him defend himself against insults. What is that all
about?!? Didn't they get the memo to just snipe and run?
And then in Tennessee as well, a number
of papers are covering Wesley campaigning as if, well, Wesley is
campaigning. Papers like the
The Tennessean in Nashville, not giving fawning coverage or
anything, but, of all things, acting as if he exists and reporting
some of what he actually says.
I tell you, the only thing that could be
weirder would be if Dick Gephardt - not having learned from the ass
Al Gore made of himself - were to do something stupid like step in
to endorse someone before the primaries were settled.
But no, that sort of absurdly stupid
thing couldn't happen twice in one election.
