Kerry's Candidacy Fast Becoming a Joke « Politics As Usual »


The more this sort of thing goes on, the more I think: John Kerry has a viable candidacy only because the un-biased news media wants him to. I never imagined somone so unprepared and incompetent could reach this stage of national politics...

To me it's been one big punchline from the day he announced. The first time. 'Cause I think he's "kicked off" his campaign three or four times already, and will again at the convention.


That's hilarious.

Let's not forget he's been campaigning for nearly 2 years already.

Let's not forget he doesn't come close to doing the job he was elected to do, but refuses to demonstrate integrity by resigning so Massachussetts could be represented by two Senators again.

Yeah, it's been a joke. But it's gotten worse lately. It's becoming a farce? One or two gaffes by a candidate are likely...but Kerry is on lie 9 or 10. And the media keeps helping him stay afloat. Kerry's acting twice as clueless as Quayle (at least!) but getting none of the derision from the press. It's too be expected, but it amuses me that they can't keep news of his blunders completely under wraps, and what we still hear about is just...just...this level of incompetence seems absolutely unprecented.

Not only is it a joke, but the hypocrisy is amazing. He's asking if Bush read it - implying the President might have - but then basically admits he went ahead and voted in favor of the Iraq resolution without reading the same document! That plays well to the ABB crowd, but the rest of the nation goes, "Now hold on a minute ..."

The number of ridiculous gaffes keeps mounting:
You'd think he'd be smart enough not to question Bush's reading because it would open him up to questions...but he's so eager to try and tag Bush with something.
Okay, one mistake, fine.
But he also said, "I don't fall down, the (#*&@* knocked me down!" ...then proceeded to fall down on his own three more times.
The whole, "I don't own an SUV, my family does", and "I own an American-made car" that ended up having been manufactured in Canada...I mean, Honestly! This guy is not ready for Prime Time by any means. But the media pretending he is just gets more and more surreal.

Ok, here is a thought. Picture the DNC in will note the hairy legged junior senator from NY has not be asked to speak...let alone give the keynote speach...perhaps there is a reason...will she be asked to run vice Kerry...due to him being served papers for his (alleged) war crimes.
There has not been too much hoopla over the omition of Hillary (yes drudge has been noting same as have some others but there has been no major media harping on this for any great length of time). There is something fishy going on behind the scenes me thinks.

Yeah, my spidey-sense has been tingling over some of those aspects, too.

Heck, if you apply the reasoning behind the Torricelli precedent to the national election, you pretty much have to replace Kerry with someone else, don't you?
