I Love John Kerry

I thought I wanted Howard Dean to be the Democratic candidate, but John Kerry is doing pretty well...for W.

His midnight after the Republican convention rally smacks of complete desperation. People can smell that. And people like to back a winner. It's only natural. It feels good when your team wins. His whining and complaining about being picked on is just wonderful. So very Presidential. If, Lord help my blood pressure, he does get win, this insecurity doesn't have the makings of a great presidency, but people aren't going to vote on that basis. So on to the next point...

He keeps bringing up Vietnam! Does he have a political death wish? Leave it in the past man. Here's what he said:

The Vice President called me unfit for office last night. Well, I'll leave it up to the voters to decide whether five deferments makes someone more qualified to defend this nation than two tours of duty.

Here's some friendly advice. You headed an anti-war group. You met with the Vietcong in Paris. You accussed Vietnam veterans of widespread war crimes, even though you had no first-hand knowledge of that yourself. If memory serves, North Vietnam's head general said that wihtout anti-war groups like your group (and I think he named your group), they wouldn't have been able to have won the war. Leave it alone! You are just courting trouble.

He then went on to say:

Letting the Saudi Royal Family control our energy costs makes you unfit. Handing out billions of government contracts to Halliburton while you're still on their payroll makes you unfit.

Well, first, that Halliburton comment is untrue. He resigned Halliburton before he even took office. Of course the Saudi Royal Family is going to have a lot to do with energy costs. They produce a huge percent of the world's oil supply. There was a Philadelphia Inquirer article explaining that increased demand had a lot to do with increased demand from India and China.

But this is besides the point. He is going into kooky territory and I like it. Hold tons of rallies. Show yourself to the world.
