There are certain metaphors John Kerry should strive to avoid:

“Many Republicans say we beat their models by four or five points,” he said.

“I won the youth vote. I won the independent vote. I won the moderate vote.”

But, Mr Kerry said, he had faced a difficult task in persuading a country at war “to shift horses in midstream”.

Sure thing, longface. Jim Geraghty has more on everybody’s favourite equine junior senator.

    1. If, by “midstream”, he means “depending on what I had for breakfast”, then, yeah, we had a problem with that.

    1. Somehow, I think I prefer Mr. Ed over Mr. Kerry.

    1. I didn’t think Democrats beat models. I always thought they prefered drowning them instead…

    1. C’mon, give Senator Botox a break.  How would you like to be the tail on Teddy Kennedy’s kite?

      Anything but the passenger seat.

    1. He’s so full of shit! The moderate vote is exactly what he needed to win but couldn’t because he’s such an ineffective politician.

      As for the youth vote, he can have it. Hell, let every ‘youth’ that voted vote twice and he still wouldn’t win. The youth vote in the US is consistantly small and now not even as knee-jerk liberal as 20 years ago.

      The Democrats are not only guilty of counting chickens before they’re hatched, there isn’t even that many f**king eggs.

    1. jan. 30th “meet the dope press”

      RUSSERT: (Q-#4) Do you believe that Iraq is less a terrorist threat to the United States now than it was two years ago?
      KERRY: No, it’s more. And, in fact, I believe the world is less safe today than it was two and a half years ago. [blah, blah, blah…]

      R: (Q-#5) Is the United States safer with the newly elected Iraqi government than we would have been with Saddam Hussein?
      K: Sure. And I’m glad Saddam Hussein is gone, and I’ve said that a hundred times. [blah, blah, blah…]

      later that morning…

      R: (Q-#6) Specifically, do you agree with Senator Kennedy that 12,000 American troops should leave at once?
      K: No.

      R: (Q-#7) Do you believe there should be a specific timetable of withdrawal of American troops?
      K: No.

      R: (Q-#8) What would you do?
      K: I understand exactly what Senator Kennedy is saying, and I agree with Senator Kennedy’s perceptions of the problem and of how you deal with it. [blah, blah, blah…]

    1. Trying to get a clear statement from Kerry about anything (his plans for Iraq, the weather, what he had for breakfast, anything) is like trying to pick up oatmeal with a barbecue fork.

    1. Kennedy’s take on the Democrats the other day “We are the minority in Congress, but we speak for the majority of Americans.”

    1. If Kerry won the moderate vote and the independent vote, why didn’t he win? Is he really saying that the majority of this country is conservative? Or is he just tacitly admitting that the left has so completely lost its collective mind that people like Christopher Hitchens and Michael Totten seem like conservatives?
