Quote Of The Day: I Agree With John Kerry About The War On Terror…What Does That Mean?
“No seriously — imagine that you struck up a conversation with a relatively informed person who said, “I agree with John Kerry about the war on terror.” What, exactly do you think that person would mean?
Would he be trying to communicate that we should stay the course? That we blundered going to war in the first place? That we were right to go to war but handled it wrong since we were there? That it was a good cause? A grand diversion? We should bug out? Finish the job? Or simply that he doesn’t know anything about the war except that George Bush is always wrong?” — From Jonah Goldberg
Oooh, oooh…I’m guessing it’s “he doesn’t know anything about the war except that George Bush is always wrong”!
In all seriousness, it’s amazing to me that we’re in a war on terrorism and we have a man running for President who can’t coherently explain his own position on the war, whose supporters can’t explain it, and whose views have radically shifted time and time again.
It takes a lot of gall to take a joke like John Kerry and try to pretend he’s credible on national security, but remember that we’re talking about a party that calls ex-KKK member Robert Byrd the “Conscience of the Senate” and Bill Clinton, “The First Black President”. So I guess “gall” isn’t a problem…
