Olympic Slowdown

I've been an Olympic junkie for decades, and now that I can switch between NBC, MSNBC, CNBC, and CBC (the best coverage), I'm finding less time to blog.

I went to a birthday party last night for the leader of our local peace group (Happy birthday, Phillis!). I talked with several of the local peaceniks who were there, and the disgust with Kerry seemed to be almost universal. Most will probably vote for him, but nobody was wearing a button, or saying they were volunteering for the campaign. While nobody wants four more years of Bush, neither is anyone excited about somebody who would still have voted for a war knowing that all of the supposed reasons were lies.

As Jon Stewart said after showing Kerry's Grand Canyon "still would have voted for the war" clip: "DUDE!!!! You wanna lose!" By taking the votes of the anti-war activists for granted, Kerry has lost tons of energy and volunteer hours for his campaign. He doesn't stand for what we stand for; how can we go knock on doors and pass out flyers for this clown?
