Overnight I received two separate links...with similar themes. John Kerry must not win...he hasn't the class to represent America.
Beth linked me to this story which includes this:
"I've met foreign leaders who can't go out and say this publicly, but boy they look at you and say, 'You've got to win this, you've got to beat this guy, we need a new policy,' things like that," he said.As Beth points out, is it just a bit presumptuous for Kerry to be meeting privately with foreign leaders?
As for me, frankly, I don't see the leadership of the United States of America and the Free World as management by committee...with undue input from foreignors at that. "Leadership by committee" is what got us a decade of a pip squeak like Saddam thumbing his nose at the world. Round after round of "we really mean it this time...you better listen to the UN because we are running out of patience and boy howdy, you won't like us when we're mad" isn't leadership. It is complicity.
But that seems to be Kerry's message. Let's get back in touch and find out what the rest of the world wants us to be.
Which just smacks of Kerry, mister duplicitous, Mr. "I feel strongly both ways on this issue". Since he doesn't have a vision of his own...since he can't take a stand on anything, it doesn't strike him as odd that others must tell him who we should be.
UPDATE: Jonah names those foreign leaders who want Kerry to win.
UPDATE: Rantingprofs puts a pointy finger on just how unseemly this issue is. (via Instapundit)
And then I heard from Shannon at The Deployment Diary and she is on a tear! Shannon rightly points out that money can buy a lot of things, but it can't buy class. This story proves two things to me...that the far side of the aisle continues to be fascinated with the posterior of the anatomy...and that a liberal tosses around the word "evil" in various inappropriate places because liberals have long ago abandoned any belief in good and evil - thus the word has no true meaning in their lexicons.
And so Kerry's wife deems it - what?, cute? I guess, to refer to the President of the USA as "evil".
Is that really what the Kerry's believe? Or is this just another case of the Kerry family tossing words around without really meaning them
OK - For whatever reason I just can't take the madness today...so without comment I want to link you to guys who do a much better job than I dissecting the Jello that is Kerry. (I don't usually link to these guys...so if you haven't read them before, make time to do so...they are all just brilliant guys.)
Steven Den Beste gets it right, here.
Citizen Smash smashes Kerry here.
And the VodkaPundit serves it up "neat" here.

Finished? Are you anymore certain as to what Kerry stands for now than y you were when you started?
Didn't think so.
UPDATE: Just for dessert.
