KERRY'S CONTORTIONS

Via Sullivan, this editorial on John Kerry:

In 1991 he voted against the first Persian Gulf War, saying more support was needed from Americans for a war that he believed would prove costly. In 1998, when President Clinton was considering military steps against Iraq, he strenuously argued for action, with or without allies. Four years later he voted for a resolution authorizing invasion but criticized Mr. Bush for not recruiting allies. Last fall he voted against funding for Iraqi reconstruction, but argued that the United States must support the establishment of a democratic government.

Mr. Kerry's attempts to weave a thread connecting and justifying all these positions are unconvincing ...

The last creature to go through this many twists, bends, reversals and inversions was a tragic Warner Brothers cat. Not the works! Not the works! On a related note, hereís a few lines from one of those bloodthirsty neo-con Bush people:

Saddam's history of aggression, and his recent record of deception and defiance, leave no doubt that he would resume his drive for regional domination if he had the chance. Year after year, in conflict after conflict, Saddam has proven that he seeks weapons, including weapons of mass destruction, in order to use them.

Actually, thatís from Sandy Berger, President Clinton's national security adviser, in 1998. Archbishop Desmond Tutu will be angry with him. Oh well, who cares.

Yeah, Raymond Scott could've done a good soundtrack for pretty much any Democratic candidate.

Tutu tells Blair to "apologize for immoral war."

I look forward to Blair telling Tutu to "get bit."

Kerry agrees with the war, not its execution. That's your problem.

Like the family of the dead soldier in chicago who have a little flag in their front yard for every dead us soldier in iraq.... and a banner that says: "Pround of our soldiers, ashamed of our President."

It's your own constituency you gotta worry about! Not the left. Your buzz boy is losing velocity and heading into a tailspin. Can't wait to get on this blog come november to announce: "Mission Accomplished!"

Sadly, we have a civil war in Iraq to witness and tut tut over before that happy day.

Oh yeah, you care about Iraq. You care about the dead soldiers in Iraq and their families. There's nothing sadder than a sanctimonious hasbeen. Go on, there must be some booze left in the house that you can drink to forget your uselessness. Try that old bottle of extract of vanilla. And isn't that a millimeter of gin left in that old Tanqueray's bottle in the trash? Go get pissed, you old bore.

Miranda, Kerry doesn't believe in anything but what will look good in the polls for the next five minutes.

You left out a cute detail. Tutu's bitching came at the Longford Lecture, in memory of Lord Longford, the guy who spent years campaigning for the release of Moors murderer Myra Hindley. Kind of appropriate that Tutu's apologies for Saddam should be delivered at a lecture in honor of an apologist for murder.
