John Kerry--SOOOO worthless

The guy who couldn't beat the worst president in history was talking to constituents in New Bedford, MA, yesterday:
Sen. Kerry puzzled over the apparent lack of interest by Americans in the Iraq war and the near silence in the U.S. mass media about the so-called Downing Street Memo.

That leaked secret document, the minutes of a 2002 cabinet meeting of British Prime Minister Tony Blair, says bluntly that Mr. Bush had decided to attack Iraq long before going to Congress with the matter, and that "intelligence was being fixed around the policy."

It caused an uproar in Great Britain and badly hurt Mr. Blair in national elections but went almost unnoticed in the United States.

"When I go back (to Washington) on Monday, I am going to raise the issue," he said of the memo, which has not been disputed by either the British or American governments. "I think it's a stunning, unbelievably simple and understandable statement of the truth and a profoundly important document that raises stunning issues here at home. And it's amazing to me the way it escaped major media discussion. It's not being missed on the Internet, I can tell you that."
When he goes back to Washington on Monday. I guess that would be Monday, June 6. Over one month after the Downing Street memo was published in the Sunday Times in London. And one of the supposed "leaders" of the supposed "opposition" waits over a month to bring it up, and is amazed that it escaped major media discussion. Geez, John, if you'd given a big speech, filled with words like "lies" and "impeachment," back on May 2, it would have been all over the media.

Kerry's a pompous, worthless blowhard. When Orrin Hatch and Mitch McConnell and Bill Frist and Tom DeLay are calling for Bush's impeachment, he might join in--but not before.

From that article:
[Kerry] questioned Americans' understanding of the war and the sense that criticism equals disloyalty, saying, "Do you think that Americans if they really understood it would feel that way knowing that on Election Day, 77 percent of Americans who voted for Bush believed that weapons of mass destruction had been found and 77 percent believe Saddam did 9/11? Is there a way for this to break through, ever?" about a presidential candidate who actually told people about it, who didn't say he would still have voted for the war even knowing WMD's wouldn't be found (which I'm pretty sure he knew anyway), who didn't run saying he would INCREASE the number of troops? That would have been one way to start to break through.

The Downing Street memo is just one more piece of evidence. People like Kerry who were in positions to know better and didn't stand up and shout that Bush was lying us into war back in 2002 have no credibility and never will.

Kerry aligned his positions so closely with Bush's that a lot of people just saw the election as a choice between Lurch and Gilligan, and they liked Gilligan better.
