Skip to comments.Kerry’s Crowd: Sweating, Squealing & Sinking
Posted on 08/28/2004 8:25:09 AM PDT by FairOpinion
A fat guy in Miami wearing sackcloth, eating habanera peppers and doing pushups on sheet metal at noon in late August would sweat less than Kerry and his cronies, these days. It seems the Swift Boat Veterans for Truth have caused the Democrats to perspire profusely.
Whats happened to Mr. Perfect? Could he have, uhhh, been less than accurate concerning his valiant Vietnam days? Did he just exaggerate or did he lie? -- when he testified and speechified about those atrocious atrocities? Did he really believe that Ramsey Clark had it right on his return from Hanoi, when he said our POWs were being treated well by the North Vietnamese?
Kerrys camp is losing its collective cool, and not without cause. In fact, theyre coming unhinged like a stuck door at Jackie Chans house. They are squealing louder than the wild boar I hit in the spine with a 100 grain Muzzy broad-head launched from my High Country bow while hunting in Texas.
Have you seen the liberal commentators on TV discussing this stuff with a Swift Boat Vet for Truth or someone who has actually read Unfit for Command and now has serious problems with Kerrys war claims? Theyre straight tripping. Watch them!
Try this: next time you see John ONeill or one of the other Swifties or an objective, Kerry questioning guest being interviewed on one of those lopsided talk shows, turn the sound down on your TV and just observe the body language of the opposing forces.
The Bush haters are shifting, scratching, hemming, hawing and twitching like a 14 year old Amish boy whose mother has just fond his Playboy stash in the horses feed bag. If you sat through Psych 101 in your undergraduate days, youll know that they know theyre skating on thin and melting ice. Conversely, watching ONeill and company sit in utter confidence, calmly answering -- when and if allowed -- with pause-free precision every question shot at them, communicates that these dudes are either telling the truth or else they are Lecter-like in their psychosis.
Since the critics of the Swift Boat Veterans for Truth cannot deal honorably with the heat created by Unfit for Command, since they cannot respond to the evidence the Swifties have piled on their candidate, and since they cannot give any substantive reason for Kerrys egregious and slanderous lies in 71 before the Senate and on TV, they revert to:
1. Constantly interrupting the Swifties or their supporters while theyre speaking, never allowing them to complete a thought, or
2. They go Tourette Syndrome on them screaming uncontrollably, and if that doesnt work
3. They strategically roll their eyes, and if that doesnt work
4. They flail their arms angrily in the air like an enraged Nell, and if that doesnt work
5. They kick them off their talk show like Chris Matthews did Michelle Malkin on Hardball. Hey, Michelle, dont take Chris oaf-like behavior personally. Hes got to be upset that the Fox Report, Seinfeld re-runs, and The Animal Planet keep pulling his remaining viewers, who by now must be mostly his relatives, away from his show. And the final tactic the desperate losing left reverts to is
6. Hypocritically hollering for the Swifties to be stifled while their 527s continue to churn out their villainous venom for the anti-Bushites, and the heavily biased NBC, ABC, CBS, CNN, MTV and VH1 crowd.
In the end, if I were liberal, you wouldnt catch me arduously defending Kerry. Yes, they are desperate to get their ideology back on top in Washington and out to the masses, where their ideas and programs will once again be proven disastrous, but I wouldnt be looking to Kerry to be poster boy for my beliefs.
Remember, Senator Kerry is their plan B. Plan A was Howard Dean. He was el Salvador right up until his Exorcist, watch-my-head-spin, moment in Iowa and then their party collectively said, Holy Schnikeys! Weve got to get someone else!!!
The problem was when they turned to look to another candidate, the choices were pretty thin. It must have been like arriving at a party a little late where the only thing left to drink is a hot, half-empty can of Schlitz, the only thing left to eat is a half-chewed pickle, and the only girl left to hit on is Courtney Love whos passed out in the fireplace.
Choosing among Dennis Kucinich, Al Sharpton and John Kerry had to be tough. Given the Swifties heavily footnoted allegations; given Kerrys continued caginess in not directly, line-for-line, answering their contentions, coupled with his continued insult to hundreds of thousands of vets who honorably served in a scandalous war is this the peg on which you want to hang your hat? Hey, this is a man whose photos are preserved in the Vietcong anti-American war museum!
Why cant we seriously question Kerry? Could it be that a bipartisan group of more than 250 vets who served spitting distance from Kerry might be right? The only way for us to know is not as Max Cleland blustered, for Bush to put up or shut up, but for Kerry to face and respond to the accusations, clearly.
My ClashPoint is this: Why the trepidation, lefties, if youre standing on such solid, holy ground in defending your would be supreme leader? Why are you seemingly coming apart at the seams? Truth is confident secure and okay when questioned. And so are those who side with truth. The nervousness, the overreaction by your liberal camp followers and the blind hypocrisy in wailing for the emasculation of free speech if it is contrary to your position, causes the moderate Democrat and the independent voter to think there may be something to what the Swifties are saying.
You see, truth needs no defense, as Charles Spurgeon said. It is a lion that simply needs to be let out of its cage. The Liberals continued knee jerking, sophomoric defense tactics scream that theyre busted and are trying to make the masses look the other way. Instead of denouncing these vets who have a right to air their opinion why not tell JFK, too, to report for duty, burnish his medals, brandish his reports, and have a fresh debate with John ONeill, 33 years after he lost the first time around?

see post #2 ping
I can just see them scurrying around like mice in a panic but then I think I do mice a disservice and think of cockroaches.
For some reason Bill O'Reilly comes to mind ...
LOL I hope Michelle Malkin gets a chance to read this. It will make her feel a whole lot better being able to look back a laugh had her Hardball interview, or I mean non-interview.
As another FReeper in a thread higher up said, hanoi john is screaming for GW to save him from the Swifties.
How would that even be possible?
This isn't New Jersey here.
The Democrats have chosen their standard bearer, and I don't believe there is a mechanism for them to replace their nominee lest some tragedy befalls him, and I don't mean poor poll numbers.
I have been saying for some time now, while others all around have been in a panic, that Kerry will be DOA by the end of September. Should this be the case as it will be, what if anything could the Democrats other than go down with Kerry's sinking swift boat?
Could Kerry withdraw his name from the race, and if so, then what?
But the question is of course could a man as self-serving and self-important as Kerry ever "take one for the team"?
I would imagine that if Kerry could somehow be replaced at the top of the ticket, it would be with John Edwards, not Hillary HamRod. Why would she want to blow her aspirational load prematurely?
Kerry's apologists also refer to the mythical "others", as in "Swift Boat Vets are denying facts about Kerry's record that most people know to be true".
Facts, like the self-aggrandized record he's been beating us over the head with?
> They go Tourette Syndrome on them screaming uncontrollably
It would have been far more effective for the Kerry Kamp
to have completely ignored the SBVFTs. No responses. Send
no counterpoint onto talk shows. Dismiss all inquires with
"not worth responding to".
It might not have worked, ultimately, but it would have
been more effective than what they are doing.
It would have taken nerves of steel, and they do not
have anyone with that characteristic.
> ... and I don't believe there is a mechanism ...
And even if there was no mechanism: Toricelli/Lautenberg
But there has to be a mech, because people are mortal,
and eventually a candidate will get struck by lightning
after getting the nom.
If Kerry steps down, taking a medical deferment, caused
by a recurrence of his "cured" prostate cancer, is a
But since there's a credible argument that the Clintons
(who tightly control the DNC) want him to lose, there
may be no high-level pressure for him to step aside.
And if it's left up to Kerry to conclude that he needs
to step aside, my read of his "character" says he won't.
The dems have a plan "B" that includes increased bribery, distortion, fraud, intimidation, dead voters, foreign voters, fake voters, electronic theft, media fakery, misrepresentation and Clinton.
With their backs to the wall, there is no filth or corruption they will not employ. They selected a weak candidate so Soros and Terry Kerry and several other Eurinal billionaires could control him. They aren't going to let their chance to destroy America without using every dirty trick in the book.
DON'T BE COMPLACENT!!! THEY ARE LIKE THE SPIDERS AND SNAKES THAT STRIKE IN THE NIGHT!! AND ALWAYS REMEMBER, THEY HAVE THE ULTRA-LEFT WING MEDIA ON HAND TO DO/SAY ANYTHING THEY REQUIRE!!
As a trial lawyer, what was Edwards thinking when he agreed to play second fiddle to a self-confessed war criminal and veteran basher?
