John Kerry presents proof of his deep connection with The People:

As Thomas left Kerry’s house in November, Kerry called out and followed him down the street. Kerry wanted to show a letter from a schoolgirl that had been left on his stoop. The letter read, in part, “John Kerry, you’re the greatest!” Kerry looked into the reporter’s eye. “The pundits have never liked me,” he said. “Is it the way I look? The way I sound?” He seemed vulnerable for a moment, then caught himself, smiled and walked home to his empty house.

Imagine this guy standing up to global terrorism.

    1. I almost feel sorry for him. Of course, if I hadn’t known whether or not to elect him before, that would have made my decision to vote for Bush right there. I could never vote in for president someone who was pitiful.

    1. Following a suit-cased nuclear bomb attack on The Greater Boston Area, President Kerry was heard to say,

      “The terrorists have never liked me,” he said. “Is it the way I look? The way I sound?” He seemed vulnerable for a moment, then caught himself, smiled and walked home to his undamaged and still fabulous Beacon-Hill Town-House.

    1. Who’d the letter come from—Alice Kramden?

    1. That is kind of freaky in a way.  What is he, a 13 year old girl with a crush on the quaterback?

    1. “The pundits have never liked me,”

      Hmm, I’d say the media punditry cetainly did. Unfortunately for you, Senator, a majority of the voters saw you for the phony you are.

    1. When confronted by a terrorist, he might be inclined to say, “why don’t you like me, oh, no fun, I know I have a funny voice and all, but come on, I’ll be your best friend”.

      Of course, vulnerability is very sweet in a fellow, for a little while at least.

    1. Vulnerability may be sweet, Darlene.

      Weakness is poison in a leader.

      No hoper. End of story.

    1. Think back.  What is it about the Democratic party that they so frequently nominate such weenies?  Sometimes I think the only reason I could put up with Clinton at all was that he had a mean streak (or at least Hillary had one big enough for both of them.)

      Consider: Jimmy Carter, Fritz Mondale, Michael Dukakis, Bill Clinton, Al Gore, John Kerry.  A rollcall of pathetic weenies.  The fact that two of them won in no way negates the premise:  Democrats are the party of “feelings” not action, and thus are doomed to weeniehood.

    1. The media loved Mark Latham too. How they fawned! What newly minted wisdom he threw them on a daily basis. How they danced around the totem pole of Labor leaders present and past.
      But then there were the voters to contend with. Sorry about that (not!).

    1. The media pundits loved him AFTER he won the primary.  Until he did, they mostly thought he was boring and stiff.  They had no idea that primary voters would spook away from Howard Dean and Wesley Clark and toward the safest, dullest guy in the pack.  But he wasn’t Bush, so they had to stump for him.

      Seriously though, this is SAD.  Bush puts up with organized rock concerts dedicated to voting him out, chimp caricatures, all sorts of media venom, and he grins and gives them the metaphorical middle finger.

  1. “Is it the way I look? The way I sound?”
