John Kerry Blogs for the Daily Kos

Saturday, January 21, 2006
Peter UK pointed out in a previous comment section that “John F Kerry, has (WARNING - following link may cause your computer to become stupid) joined Kos.

This jaw dropping information needs to be highlighted. It shows just how much the Daily Kos influences the so-called mainstream of the Democratic Party. Kerry is currently suggesting that Chris Matthews’ “Hardball” TV program should focus more attention on the Bush administration’s failure to capture Osama bin Ladin at Tora Bora. This is of secondary importance. The shocking fact is that Kerry eagerly embraces the Kos crowd instead of running in the opposite direction. “P.S. I want you all to know that I’m reading your many comments. My wife Teresa reads blogs passionately, and I follow blogs too, and I’m glad I can be a part of this...” adds the Democrat’s standard bearer of 2004. One also suspects that Teresa is not hesitant to throw more than a few buck into the Daily Kos’ bank account.

John Kerry came within three percentage points of becoming our Commander-in-Chief. The legacy media downplayed his liberalism. They allowed Kerry’s campaign to get away with falsely marketing him as a middle of the road Democrat. The truth can no longer be ignored. It is increasingly obvious that the Daily Kos and his leftist allies possess the veto power over the selection of the Democratic Party’s next presidential nominee. Can anyone imagine the well deserved uproar if a high profile Republican politician dare blogged for a radical right-wing group?

It fits. Really, it's the first honest thing I can remember the jr. senator from Massachusetts ever doing. Now if the Mrs. would just break out the silks--unfurl nice big red hammer and sickle flags over her many castles, then as a couple they'd finally be coming clean a little bit.

Two things, as far as a lot of folks are concerned Rush Limbaugh is the radical right wing and the other thing, I don't think that most Democratic politicians think average Democrats are paying attention to this.

Kos is the mistress, not the wife.

But hey, a mistress can cause a guy a few problems if and when the wifey catches on.

James Taranto compares OBL and DNC (scroll halfway down):

John Kerry's talking points: "Bush does not have a plan to make his alleged victory in Iraq come true."

Taunting Bush over "Mission Accomplished": "And if you compare the small number of dead on the day that Bush announced the end of major operations in that fake, ridiculous show aboard the aircraft carrier with the tenfold number of dead and wounded who were killed in the smaller operations, you would know the truth of what I say."

Selectively citing opinion polls: "But I plan to speak about the repeated errors your President Bush has committed in comments on the results of your polls that show an overwhelming majority of you want the withdrawal of American troops from Iraq."

He likes the MSM: "The news of our brother mujahideen (holy warriors) is different from what the Pentagon publishes. They (the news of mujahideen) and what the media report is the truth of what is happening on the ground."

The neocon cabal: "The mujahideen, thank God, are increasing in number and strength--so much so that reports point to the ultimate failure and defeat of the unlucky quartet of Bush, Cheney, Rumsfeld and Wolfowitz."

Terrorist book club: "If you (Americans) are sincere in your desire for peace and security, we have answered you. And if Bush decides to carry on with his lies and oppression, then it would be useful for you to read the book 'Rogue State.' "

Reagan didn't win the Cold War: "We were patient in fighting the Soviet Union with simple weapons for 10 years and we bled their economy and now they are nothing."

(Taranto said) "He sounds almost like--naah, we won't say it. Might be misconstrued as questioning someone's patriotism."

If Kerry represents the views of the DemoNcrats, then the phrase should be:

Be Afraid. Be VERY afraid.

I just found the following:

"IS THIS A JOKE? [Kathryn Jean Lopez]
John Kerry is blogging on Daily Kos?

---the Corner, National Review

This was also my initial reaction. i was wondering if someone might be pulling a fast one. It is purely idiotic for John Kerry and the other so-called mainstream Democrats to identify themselves so closely with the Daily Kos crowd. This will only destroy any chance of their ever recapturing the White House.

I think Kos is a lot closer to the mainstream than any of you realize. I agree with Buddy that Kerry has finally come clean and I for one welcome the change.

Eric Blair said...

I think its a joke of somesort. Like that Wikipedia silliness noted above.

Eric Blair said...

Oh. I should qualify that by saying I always thought Kerry was a joke.

Syl said...

Kerry listened to Molly Ivins who said the other day she would not support Hillary. Nobody wants a Republican Light, doesn't anyone have the courage to stand up?

Kerry ::waving hand:: Me! Me! And heads on over to Kos.

Heh. Yes. BRING IT ON!

Peter UK said...

According to Tim Blair,Kerry was against Kos before he was for it
Well actually he was for it, then against it, then for it again,but I'm sure you knew all that.

They say that doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different result is a sign of mental illness.

CF said...

Here's the most telling thing I remember about Kerry. His sister said when they were kids, he always staged plays in which he was the hero.

He got a taste of the limelight in the last campaign and cannot give it up.

Personally, I think we all should encourage his efforts. It will make it hard for anyone in the sane middle to get the Dem nomination, and he will never win on a national scale.

The second thing we should do, is encourage Teresa to keep speaking her mind without handlers.
(Yes, I am an evil person.)
