  • Latest Witty Comeback from the Kerry Campaign

       September 29, 2004

    Bloggers aren't the only ones who've noticed John F'ing Kerry's new leatherface look. Lynne Cheney's noticed it too.

    During a campaign stop with her husband, a group of volunteers moved into the crowd with microphones for the question-and-answer period. Vice President Dick Cheney told supporters to look for the people with dark orange shirts.

    When Cheney paused as if searching for the words to describe the shade of orange, Lynne Cheney said, "How about John Kerry's suntan?"

    Surely the sophisticated Kerry camp returned Cheney's comments with a their own brand of urbane wit. Um, not so much. Here's what they had to say:

    Responding to her comments, Kerry campaign spokesman Bill Burton said, "Is Mrs. Cheney jealous considering how hard it is to get sun in the undisclosed location with her husband Dick?

    What the hell is that? The political equivalent of "I know you are, but what am I?" Even if you took Burton's remark at face value it's still incredibly stupid. Is he faulting Cheney for hard work and being on the job? Does he think the Cheneys should just take a few weeks off to go windsurfing?

    While Kerry is the worst Presidential candidate in a long, long time, his staff may be even worse. If these people are a reflection of the "talent" a President Kerry would surround himself with, then God help us all if he wins.

    Allah calls the Kerry campaign "Team Trainwreck." Dead-on.

    "I would guess if we had gone in there, I would still have forces in Baghdad today. We'd be running the country. We would not have been able to get everybody out and bring everybody home.

    "And the final point that I think needs to be made is this question of casualties. I don't think you could have done all of that without significant additional U.S. casualties. And while everybody was tremendously impressed with the low cost of the (1991) conflict, for the 146 Americans who were killed in action and for their families, it wasn't a cheap war.

    "And the question in my mind is how many additional American casualties is Saddam (Hussein) worth? And the answer is not that damned many. So, I think we got it right, both when we decided to expel him from Kuwait, but also when the president made the decision that we'd achieved our objectives and we were not going to go get bogged down in the problems of trying to take over and govern Iraq."

    - Dick Cheney, the first (and best) flip-flopper

    DaveF,

    Do you think anything significant happened since 1991? Could Cheney's position possibly be explained by the events of 9/11? Give me a break.

    Unfortunately for you, Kerry's flip flops occur almost DAILY. It's as if he wakes up with a new position every morning.

    Like that movie "50 First-dates", only with Kerry it's "50 New positions"
