BTW, trying to connect Kerry with Turkish protesters in a wisecrack like the first post here was pretty low. If you want to say he's unAmerican or antiAmerican, make a case from the stuff he says and does.
I am shocked! (chuckle) Why, I just quoted what the protesters said, I made no observation about who they were. The article said there were representatives of Greenpeace in there, others from Europe, denouncing the "imperialism" of Bush.
Find me something in there different from the rhetoric of Alec Baldwin, Barbara Streisand, Michael Moore, Martin Sheen, Algore, or Nancy Pelosi, and I'll apologize for misconstruing the nature of the protests. These are Kerry's people, in spirit and intent.
That's a comment in itself. And very much a real problem for Kerry. For the moderate Democrats, Kerry must distance
himself from such hate-crazed kooks. For the progressive Democrats, Kerry must embrace these very same protesters. It's quite a high rope act Kerry has, I don't envy him for it. But I am in no way incorrect or imprecise in noting Kerry's difficulties. And I do so with naked glee.
(Perhaps naked isn't the best term since we're discussing Jack Ryan in this thread.)
