``We look around us in this country, and we see God's work yet to be done,'' Kerry said at the church. ``That is what is bringing us here.''


While Democratic presidential nominee John Kerry and his running mate, John Edwards, and their families were having a “lite” lunch at Wendy’s in the Town of Newburgh Friday, drumming up local support right after the national convention in Boston, their real lunches were waiting on their bus.


I must say, I'm getting a lot of enjoyment out of this election cycle. This guy is out-George-ing George, oozes elitist condesension, has no firm beliefs, yet hordes of liberals are lining up to vote for him. Can you even pretend he's sincere?

At least he's not George.

Is this that sarcasm again?? It's so hard to tell!

I think it's irony, not sarcasm.

I find it interesting to watch this zombie pushed to the candidacy. He has no real background; his entire campaign seems to be based on four months in Viet Nam, fifteen minutes of antiwar protesting (with the really icky parts sanitized for your, not my, protection) and the fact that he's not the sitting president, which in some fantasy world seems to count for something. Only in a substance-free environment can a candidate stump solely on the fact that he is not the other candidate... And gain followers.

Should Kerry win (I'm still not convinced he will last as far as the election, let alone win it if on the ballot), no one will know what he stands for until he starts governing. Not you, not me.

He's against gay marriage, EWR. He's said so. Why is he *your* candidate?

I don't remember saying I had a candidate. Well, other than "Anyone but Bush"...

Frying pan -> fire.

Okay, you get points for making me laugh.

He's got my vote on the "At least he's not George" front, too. Gore got my vote for the same reason.

And this time around, I'll cast my 'not George' vote with more confidence than last time. Last time, I voted based on, "Oh God! George will be terrible!" This time, I'll vote on "Yup, he was terrible, all right." I don't think America can survive with this mounting deficit. And Bush is the Pro-Deficit candidate.

Mmm. Pro-Deficit candidate.

That's not my primary reason for not liking him, but his liberal taste for big government turns me off just the same (I'm sure you've guessed by now that I'm a minimal statist).

Still, he's not Kedwards, or whatever the guy with the hair's name is.

Yeah, Bush is burning the Government candle faster than the Dems are typically famous for. Today's news announces that he's looking for a new "Intelligence Czar" to organize intelligence agencies. That's one of the things Homeland Defense was supposed to do. I believe he also appointed some new CIA-FBI liason last year too.

This is like the Dems opening up welfare, then a department of giving money to the poor, and then a poor and underpriveledged oversight committee. Then they'd cut taxes and borrow money from Asia to pay for it.

Face it. You're better off voting for Kerry. :)

Not quite, from what I've heard. Bush was told to produce a intel cabinet poosition by the 9/11 commission. He wants to make it a 'czar' rather than cabinet position. Kerry's already been going on about how Bush is dragging his feet over implementing the commission recommendations, so Bush's hands are tied, aren't they.

In any event, at least I know what Bush will do. I may not like it, but I can guess in advance what he will do; he will act consistently with FDR-era liberalism. What Kerry will do, or even thinks, is completely unknown at this point.

$200 for 19 "five-star" meals doesn't sound like a bad deal to me. 10 bucks a piece for supposed gourmet? Wendy's was an appearance, surely, but unless you order strictly from their dollar menu, Wendy's dinner for one person will run about $6.50.

I love Wendy's, and I do order off the dollar menu... Except that I biggie-size the fries.
Aug. 2nd, 2004 11:48 am (UTC)
The Biggie Fries used to be on the dollar menu. Things seem to keep shrinking over there...

They've had higher medical insurance premiums since Dave went belly-up.

In the immortal words of the Daily Show:
"John Kerry, the least objectionable alternative to George Bush."

LOL, JK is the first candidate to lose in the polls after their respective convention since 1972, even if it was just one point. Check it here.
