Bring It On

Just because John Kerry was defeated at the polls, don't think he's gone forever.

Drat the luck.

Now granted this story is from Newsmax, but according to them, John Kerry is planning to try to impeach the President.

Failed presidential candidate John Kerry said Thursday that he intends to confront Congress with a document touted by critics of President Bush as evidence that he committed impeachable crimes by falsifying evidence of weapons of mass destruction in Iraq.

"When I go back [to Washington] on Monday, I am going to raise the issue," Kerry said, referring to the Downing Street Memo in an interview with Massachusetts' Standard Times newspaper.

"I think it's a stunning, unbelievably simple and understandable statement of the truth and a profoundly important document that raises stunning issues here at home," the top Democrat added.

The Downing Street Memo, first reported on May 1 by the London Times, was drafted by a Matthew Rycroft, a foreign policy aide to Prime Minister Tony Blair. It is said to be minutes of a July 2002 meeting where Blair allegedly admitted that the Bush administration "fixed" Iraq intelligence to manufacture a rationale for war.

Never heard of the memo?
The British memo, however, contains no quotes from either Bush or Blair, and is notably slim on evidence implicating Bush in a WMD cover-up.

Though largely ignored in the U.S. outside of rabid anti-Bush Web sites like MichaelMoore.com, the Downing Street Memo won Sen. Kerry's endorsement in the Standard Times interview:

"It's amazing to me," the top Democrat said, "the way it escaped major media discussion. It's not being missed on the Internet, I can tell you that."

The Deanification and Moorealization of the Democrat Party continues apace.

UPDATE: Folsom James Phillips of the Monkeys notes that James Robbins has the dirt on the "memo" in question.

My conclusion, which I omitted in my caffeine-free early morning haze, is; please, Democrats. Please keep this kind of thing going. You'll be a third party by 2016.

I never got enough attention from mommy, which is why I write anonymous comments like:

" Wow! You sure are an asshat. Viva censorship, right you fucking fascist? Wait until your idol Dubya crashes and burns. I hope he takes all you Rightists down with him."

My IP Address is 141.153.92.136. I'm a Democrat who lives in West Virginia, which means I really AM a lonely little crank.

I was spoiled rotten as a kid, which is why I write this way.

With all the calm, classy posts like "None of your f--king business"....we Republicans are going to have years and years of continued electoral success. That kind of attitude can't be hidden, and people will come to hate them.

And thanks again for making Howard Dean your party chief. Howie the Scream is the poster child for what you people really are: a bunch of real losers.
