Looking on the bright side, the Democratic take over of the House (and maybe Senate) is going to provide a rich source of material for the KOTCB Blog. Why, just a few hours after the polls closed we already had this story about the son of WINNER Florida Senator Bill Nelson who soundly defeated plastic woman Katherine Harris. So how does Nelson's son celebrate his Dad's victory? "...they found Charles William Nelson, apparently drunk, sparring with a man and attempting to drag an unconscious woman to a hotel, according to the Herald.Charles Nelson tried to take the woman, Kimberly Baxter, away to a hotel when he heard that paramedics were on their way to help her.Police told Nelson to put Baxter down, the newspaper reported, but instead he dropped her on the ground and refused to leave. He shouted at and pushed one of the officers, according to the Herald." At least two more years of this stuff - it's going to be great!
It's almost unfair... almost, but when you really think about it John Kerry has provided us all (and not by mistake) with a window on his psyche. There is no need for him to apologize because he's not sorry for what he said and there's nothing worse than a disingenuous apology. He doesn't like the US military and the people in the US military don't like him. I have yet to meet anyone in the Army, Navy, Air Force or Marines who has anything good to say about John Kerry - to a man they all consider him a turncoat who would gladly throw them overboard if it would advance his career.
The fact of the matter is that no one who has an ounce of respect for our troops or our military institutions could have made the following statement.
"You know, education, if you make the most of it, if you study hard and you do your homework, and you make an effort to be smart, uh, you, you can do well. If you don't, you get stuck in Iraq."
