While Bush is using the first anniversary of Iraq's sovereignty to ease fears and doubts over the Iraq war, John Kerry- who didn't win- has the audacity to write an OP-Ed piece in the NYTIMES that outlines the speech that Bush should give! Okay, John, buddy. You lost. Ok? And you lost because despite everything that was going wrong, and your over-hyped intelligence, you couldn't deliver one speech that made a 50/50 split country 4 years ago vote for you. You are not one to give advice on any kind when it comes to speeches, especially that your speeches were actually more boring then Al Gore speeches, something that i believe was quite the remarkable achievement in its own right. Either way, some people will read what he said and they will think "He is right. That's what should be done!", except that for the most part, it is what's being done anyway. Ehh, Whatever... You know, this brings to my mind 2 conversations i've had with 2 Americans and neither one is a republican. One with Army Lisa, and the other with this kid named Alex, a self titled "western democrat" from Montana who worked for a year in Egypt as member of the American embassy's cultural affairs department, and who is now getting his masters degree in the States. The first conversation was with Lisa, and it occurred right after Bush got re-elected. I asked her, since she was in Iraq and in harms way, like the rest of her brethren, why didn't they vote for Kerry instead of Bush who sent them there? Was it the commander in chief thing? Her response was the following: " The commander in chief thing partly, and partly because Kerry said that we would wait at least 4 years in Iraq anyway. I figured if we are staying either way, I might as well go with the one who is known for supporting the troops, and not the other guy who smeared his fellow Unit members and voted against our funding to show how he is opposed to the war whom he voted for in order to get elected. The dude is a Jerk-off, why should I vote for a jerk-off?" Alex -on the other hand- gave me the account of a personal encounter his dad and John Edwards had after the elections: "My dad asked Edwards if he and Kerry still spoke, and Edwards told him 'Not really. Me and John don't like each other, and that's mainly because John only cares about John.' " And you know what? I actually believe that! This is probably his way to start-up his 08 campaign, or even get some excitement going for his senatorial 06 election. Just a way to capitalize on the bad situation and saying "See, if I was elected I would have done so much better. I know what needs to be done you morons". I would really hate for it to succeed, because between him and Hillary, the democrats might be looking forward to an even more humiliating defeat in 08. So please, Shut up John! You've lost, and losers don't get to criticize winners. Just shut up and go away!

Thought the same damn thing. Of course, everytime teddy says "quagmire" I have this picture of him drowning in a swamp of smors with the ghost of Mary Jo Kopechne swirling around his head.

A few years ago I met an older woman who saw a good deal of Kerry on the social circuit both in Georgetown and on Nantucket, and she said the junior senator from Massachusetts could be summed up in one word. I hazarded a guess: "Phoney?" She smiled and said "exactly."

Well said. The people of massitwoshits should be ashamed of themselves for continuing to support both skerry and teddyk. They are both digusting, amoral assholes who don't deserve public office.
