Kerry Lied, Jefferson Cried

So says Cardinal Martini of my junior senator.  You know, the one of the two I actually like better.


Then again, it's not hard to beat Ted Kennedy in that race.


God help the Commonwealth of Massachusetts.

You know, my second grade teacher taught us that Lincoln educated himself by writing on a coal shovel. Was she lying? No, she was just believing an apocryphal story, which is something tons of people do. It doesn't make them liars.

I'm just sayin'.

I didn't actually think that Kerry lied. I was just trying to create a satirical rhyme. I don't think the President lied either about the evidence of weapons in Iraq. That's the point. I know you, the Exile, understand the point.

Is he the one you actually like better, or the one you detest less? Perhaps "detest" is too strong a word - MS Word offers a kinder, gentler synonym: "dislike intensely."

I have to acknowledge the former. I voted for him in 2002, and often don't mind him.

Then again, I would sooner vote for Mickey Mouse than Ted Kennedy.

Actually, I don't dislike Kerry all that much, either.

I for one, will like him a whole lot more if he decides not to pursue the Democratic nomination in '08.

Ditto for me.

Heh. Does that make me a flip-flopper?

Whenever I hear "flip-flopper", I think "person who wears Birkenstocks".

Um. I wear Birk's. Furthermore, can I just add this?

"I voted for him in 2002, and often don't mind him."

I am *floored* by this relevation. Just floored.

To paraphrase something I often say about my own humble self (from the movie The Titantic: You are a deep ocean of mystery.

Please forgive my stunned-ed-ness....digesting Exile voting for Kerry.....I need a few more Millier Lights before I'll be able to sleep tonight....

Maybe this will help you sleep tonight: his only opposition that year was a Libertarian candidate whose name I had not even heard prior to entering the voting booth.

The vote for Kerry was a quid pro quo of sorts for his voting in favor of the Iraq War.

Compare with my congressman's unopposed race: I wrote myself in.

And, for what it's worth, I'm a flip-flopper of the Birkenstock variety whenever the temperature is over 60 degrees.
