Humor and derision? Bring it on.
Charles Pierce on the Bushies' plan to "make John Kerry a subject of humor and derision":
It is a wonderment, though, that this president is going to campaign for a while on the platform of making somebody else look ridiculous. The sheer audacity of it, considering that, every time he rises to speak, this president is even money to break an ankle getting from a subject to a verb, and that this president talks about the serious problem of international sex tourism without ever apparently consulting his brother Neil, who apparently lived for several years in Thailand working as a petri dish, and that this president could find neither oil in Texas nor his National Guard unit in Alabama. “Food on your family.” “Make the pie higher.” “Watch this drive.” The Pet Goat. With all the very big fish they have swimming around in their own very small barrels, they’re now going to launch Operation Whoopie Cushion?
Wow, indeed. Do they really want to go there? Because if they do, we're more than ready for them.
