My vote: Anyone but Kerry.
My comments on a great article by Marc Cooper
As one of the oft-mentioned 'swing votes', the election is already a no-brainer. I voted for Gore, and have supported Bush. Is Kerry is best the Dems can do?? The man is a train wreck in slow motion. His complete lack of even a basic understanding of anything he talks about is displayed on an almost daily basis. Even worse is the continuous flip-flopping broadcast into our homes 24/7. He and his staff are m-e-a-t for Rove and his machine - they can't even field the softballs. The international diplomats are waaay nastier then the GOP. The French, Russians, and the UN will chew him up, spit him out, and get him to pay for it - and get him to apologize for it later.
Dems: Don't give up - trade up!
Lieberman was the best chance the Democratic Party had. As a non-aligned (aka swing) voter, I would really appreciate a realistic choice. Joe was (and still is) the only one of the bunch not spouting gibberish, half-baked conspiracy theories, and promises so grand that they could not be accomplished in 50 years, let alone four.
My vote: Anyone but Kerry.
But there's still time. Tell Joe you're sorry. Before it's too late.

Holy Shiite! Charlie Gibson calls Kerry out over 6/7/8/9
of his/someone's medals/ribbons from Vietnam/WWII that he did/didn't throw away in front of 20/30 still photograhers.
GIBSON: senator, i was there 33 years ago and i saw you throw medals over the fence and we didn't find out until later -
KERRY: no, you didn't see me throw th. charlie, charlie, you are wrong. that's not what happened. i threw my ribbons across. all you have to do -
GIBSON: someone else's medals, correct in?
KERRY: after -- excuse me. excuse me, charlie. after the ceremony was over, i had a bronze star and a purple heart given to me, one purple heart by a veteran in the v.a. in new york and the bronze star by an older veteran of world war ii in massachusetts. i threw them over because they asked me to. i never --
GIBSON: let me come back to the thing just said which is the military --
KERRY: this is a phony -- charlie, this is a phony controversy.
GIBSON: the military makes no distinction between ribbons and medals but you are the one who made the distinction. in 1984 --
KERRY: no . we made no distinction back then, charlie. we made no distinction.
GIBSON: senator, i don't want -- i just want to ask the question. in 1984 when you were running for the senate, that was the first time that you called someone in from labor because they were upset that you had thrown ribbons away.
It's like watching a trainwreck in slow-motion. Can you imagine the meltdown if Gibson had asked him about his SUV? Lurch is nothing if not consistantly inconsistant.
Bet Lieberman is looking real good to a whole lot-o-peeps these days. "Umm..Joe? We are, like, reallly, reallly sorry dude...."
UPDATE: Michael J. Totten
has some advice for Kerry...
is fortelling the future...

Things are looking up. I've been making quite a few local connections, as of late. If I can put together two sets of rock/blues/jazz material by October - I'll be gigging again! Woo-Hoo!
Time to get to work!
