John Kerry can’t
shoot deer, so he went shooting geese. In what Dick Cheney calls the “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?
our answer, albeit in an indirect form. When the terrorists are a bunch of
clueless punks without a leader, John Kerry will crush them with vengeance.
Prior to that, he’ll “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.
