John Kerry Is a Republican Mole

I thought Caspar Weinberger was dead. The former defense secretary and war criminal IS dead, but his son, Cap Jr., lives on. He's apparently a Repug like dad. Nevertheless, I see that Cap Jr. has been thinking exactly what I've been thinking lately: John Kerry Is a Republican Mole.

"I'm John Kerry and I'm reporting for duty."

I've been enjoying Keith Olbermann's Edward R. Murrow impersonations lately, but I think he's really stretching in defending Kerry. Olbermann claims that the "botched joke" was really a devastatingly clever insult of Bush that Bush and his minions were too stupid and/or dishonest to get. Come on--this is John Kerry!

I've had nothing but contempt for Kerry since his vote for war in 2002, and was flabbergasted that the Dems would reject all good (Kucinich) and even so-so candidates (Graham, Dean, Mosely-Braun, Edwards) and run with the only guy who could possibly lose to Bush. And maybe I've missed something (this story makes my head hurt, so I haven't exactly been spending every minute on it), but I've seen nothing in Kerry's original statement, nor his explanation, nor his apology, that gives it the meaning Olbermann ascribes to it.

Probably nobody, including Kerry, really knows what he was trying to say, but I think Weinberger's explanation makes the most sense. The Dems were in danger of winning an election--send in John Kerry to keep it from happening.

Would you trust this man...

with YOUR election chances?
