Johnny come lately.

John Kerry says it's time for the troops to come home. [WaPo] Gosh, this couldn't have anything to do with the fact that polls are showing a majority of Americans are now firmly against the war, could it? With finger bravely stuck in the air to see which way the wind is blowing, Kerry says, "There is reluctance by people here to push this envelope, and I think you have to push it." Wow, what a principled stand! Where was Kerry (aka "the backbone") three years ago? Oh right, he voted for giving Bush carte blanc to do whatever the hell he wanted to do. I can't remember, has he decided whether he now regrets that vote?

Kerry is all about pushing the envelope now that Bush is clearly in trouble on this issue. The prevailing thinking on this is that Kerry is staking out a position to the left of Hillary in the hopes of wooing the anti-war Democrats. Mission not accomplished. I say a pox on both their houses. The only thing more nauseating than Hillary's 'tougher than Bush sans the religious fanaticism' election strategy, is Kerry's Johnny come lately conversion to the anti-war position.

Thanks John, but no thanks. If it comes down to a choice between Hilary and Kerry in '08, I just might sit this one out. And this is coming from someone who has never missed an election, even though I only voted for a winning ticket twice in my entire life, and that was for Bubba. Mondale, Dukakis and Kerry, big time losers. Never again.
