Desperate times: John Kerry is a dope.

Boy, how desperate are W. & Co.? Despite what Karl Rove claims --telling NPR's Robert Segal that he sees secret polls that show a sweeping GOP victory next week -- it's a clear sign of the GOP soiling its collective pants in abject desperation when W. has to go into the Republican heartland of Sugarland Texas to scare Party loyalists into coming out to vote. It seems the horrible truth is finally starting to sink in at the White House, and they're panicking. (Imagine if they had shown this much gumption when Iraqis started looting everything that wasn't nailed down back in 2003, instead of pooh poohing the whole situation as "stuff happens.")

Now it appears the only thing worse than Shiite fanatics who take their marching orders from Tehran ruling Iraq, is the Dems taking over both Houses of Congress for the final two years of W.s' term. Remember, if the Dems take Congress "the terrorists win and America loses."

Sorry Karl, the old fearmongering just isn't working anymore. And as if things couldn't get bleaker for the GOP, the latest New York Times/CBS polls shows that among potential voters, "33 percent said they planned to support Republicans, and 52 percent said they would vote for Democrats. . . Nearly 70 percent said Mr. Bush did not have a plan to end the war, and 80 percent said Mr. Bush's latest effort to rally public support for the conflict amounted to a change in language but not policy."

80% think W. is full of it. That's pretty stunning. You know what Lincoln said, 'you can fool all of the people some of the time etc.' It looks like Dorothy just looked behind the certain and . . .

Wait, not so fast! Here comes John Kerry to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory. Again:

"Education, if you make the most of it, you study hard, you do your homework and you make an effort to be smart, you can do well. And if you don't, you get stuck in Iraq."

Nice work, John! He keeps doing this type of thing. [Is this some sort of Skull and Bones thing? 'You take this one and I get the next one?'] What I don't understand is what was on his mind when he realized he'd screwed up this little "joke" of his. He must have known it didn't come out right, why didn't he correct himself then and there? I understand having to go back and explain a joke makes it very unfunny, but Kerry is also very unfunny, so what's the diff?

This guy is Harvard educated isn't he? Hasn't he been in politics most of his adult life? What on earth is this man thinking? (If he was thinking he'd have a chance of ever getting the Democratic presidential nomination, that just went out the window. A detainee in Gitmo has a better chance of getting a Writ of Habeas Corpus than he does of ever becoming president.)

Of course, as bad as that was, W. went one better by going on Lush Bingbong's show -- the man who just made fun of Michael J. Fox' shaking from Parkinson's to say that -- get this -- "Anybody who is in a position to serve this country ought to understand the consequences of words."

Yes, one must be very careful with one's words; saying "America must not ignore the threat gathering against us. Facing clear evidence of peril, we cannot wait for the final proof -- the smoking gun -- that could come in the form of a mushroom cloud," might lead some to believe we should invade a country that is no threat to us, waste billions of dollars and lose 2,800 US troops.

Obviously, John Kerry is a dope, but a more or less harmless one. W. is the more dangerous dope. A mind trully is a terrible thing to waste.
