I can hear it now: poor John Kerry, in exploring another (failed) presidential bid, stands before a roomful of people and announces, "I actually DID apologize for calling our troops stupid after refusing to apologize."
Remember the Mel Brooks' movie, "The Producers", turned into a smash Broadway hit with Nathan Lane and Matthew Broderick? There's a scene where one of the characters, facing complete ruination and scandal, is curled up on the floor in a fetal position clutching a baby blanket and repeating, "No way out....no way out....no way out...."
Can't you just see poor, pitiful John Kerry curled up on an Oriental rug in his Beacon Hill townhouse saying the same thing?
Man, I've seen politicians self-destruct before, but not quite to the extent of this particular meltdown. I'm not sure what's more offensive: Kerry's arrogant tirade or his wimpy little five-sentence statement on his website that purports to be an apology.
Do you think there's any single American, Democrat or Republican, who believes he's sorry?
Voters should go to the polls next week with the image of John Kerry emblazoned in their minds. Or, better still, consider what liberal/Democrat investigative reporter Seymour Hersch had to say this week about our brave men and women fighting the good fight: "There has never been an American army as violent and murderous as the one in Iraq." This is the same Seymour Hersch who had the big "scoop" about American soldiers putting panty hose on the heads of some prisoners at Abu Ghraib. Think this guy might have an agenda? "Violent and murderous?" And you can be certain this clown isn't a registered Republican.
It's simple, these folks simply despise our troops. They "loathe the military" (remember who said THAT? It wasn't a Republican...) and want America to lose. I know it sounds hard to believe, but how else would you describe it?
Liberals are screeching and howling and wailing and thrashing. Check out that lunatic Keith "I-think-I'm-Edward-R.-Murrow" Olbermann on MSNBC.
I hate to dare to dream, but could Democrats realize that their supposedly guaranteed victory isn't such a foregone conclusion after all?
