John F. Kerry: "Just Another Goofy Ensign"

Varifrank Channels the Ghost of Andy Rooney

Didja ever notice how before the summer of 2004, all Vietnam vets portrayed by the media were mentally scarred desheveled homeless men shooting at college students from rooftops, but now that one Vietnam vet is running for president, he and he alone is a hero for his acts in Vietnam, while those Vets that oppose him still remain portrayed as scarred desheveled homeless men shooting at college students from a rooftops? Whats worse, they're obviously republicans who can't be trusted, the enemies of mankind... whisper....whisper....whisper

Didja ever notice how the words "Texas Oilman" has become a substitute for "klansman" by many people who consider themselves enlightend by NPR beyond the shoddy banks of bigotry?

Didja ever notice how people who call themselves "Democrats" are the first to argue that "Democracy isnt for everyone" and are willing to tolerate the most undemocratic leaders ( stalin-mao-mihn-hussien-mugabe-chavez) the world has ever known, as long the "dear leader' uses the magic words " but it's for the people"?

Didja ever notice that it used to be Democrats who worked and believed in freedom and liberty for all mankind and Republicans worked only for big business and now its Republicans who want to make everyone free and the Democrats working for big business?

Didja ever wonder when it was that Democrats became the conservatives and Republicans became the liberals?


UPDATE I: A reader writes to advise me that Andy Rooney is not dead. My response -"Have you seen his act lately"? Unless I see a doctors note, I'm going to assume hes been replaced by a character from Disneys Animatronics display, from the "hall of forgotten gasbags"
UPDATE II:Captain Ed gives both testimony and evidence backing my parody.

Democrats became reactionary when they bacame the establishment. Why keep the revolution going when you've got the Winter Palace? Why trash the Dean's Office when you are the Dean?

Of course, that means you want time to stop at that point, which it never does.

The same thing happened before the Civil War and during the 1960s

Mikey,

Good quality argument, concise, accurate ... obviously NOT a journalist.

Posted by: Keith | Aug 20, 2004 10:32:23 AM

Keith: Thanks. Not a journalist, a lawyer.
(Talk about being on the dark side of the force.)

This was good. Very very good. Thanks to Vodkapundit for putting up your link.

In the current attempt to discredit one of the Swifvets he was described as a "Texas oil WORKER." This shows that terms that are epithets to liberals do not even have to be used in context. Reason is non-existent being replaced by a mere Pavlovian response to stimulus.
