shoot deer, so he went shooting geese. In what Dick Cheney calls the “ href="http://www.local6.com/politics/3841422/detail.html">October Disguise”
of the great statesman-coalition builder, we can actually see quite a
remarkable progress. John Kerry has finally realized he can’t hunt the big
deer is a relatively smart individual who can blend with his habitat, a goose
is just a stupid bird (no offense meant, and I hope that none was taken). Kerry
can spend the morning with the campaign’s hairdresser, have his shotgun triple-checked
(the last time he used it was before his 1st campaign for Congress),
and do his shooting photo-op before lunch. It doesn’t take determination or
resolve to shoot and make a kill when your opponent is a flock of geese. Even
Democrats can do that.
are simply a nuisance, especially if you are a big-city liberal who feels most
comfortable in a 5-star hotel. And treated they are as such. One shot, one
kill, game over. Two rolls of film or a 64MB CompactFlash card are the trophy
that the campaign is going to brag about for the next 10 days: look at the man,
he is a … man!
When John Kerry went to Vietnam, the Army didn’t accept women for combat
positions. If there’s anyone questioning Kerry’s manliness, it’s safe to assume
they are not interested in a macho gesture. No, the nagging thought that
bothers American voters is this: can this guy actually do something besides
talking and posing for a photo-op?

clueless punks without a leader, John Kerry will crush them with vengeance.
Prior to that, he’ll “ href="http://www.telegraph.co.uk/opinion/main.jhtml;sessionid=20VNR4MM0WLLFQFIQMGCM5OAVCBQUJVC?xml=/opinion/2004/07/27/do2702.xml&sSheet=/opinion/2004/07/27/ixopinion.html">crawl
around on his stomach” and hope they won’t notice him. After all, there are
so many targets around the world that have an appeal for Osama & Co, the
probability of a peaceful, nurturing Kerry presidency is greater than zero.
If it is
higher than that of another Ground Zero remains to be seen.
