s the results from last years presidential election show the majority of Americans rejected Sen. John Kerry for the job. But as this story shows even Kerry himself hasn’t accepted the fact he lost. Not surprising when you live in a world of “Christmas’ in Cambodia,” “lucky CIA hats” and “VC the wonder dog.”
“Last year too many people were denied their right to vote, too many who tried to vote were intimidated,” the Massachusetts senator said at an event sponsored by the state League of Women Voters.
“There is no magic wand. No one person is going to stand up and suddenly say it’s going to change tomorrow. You have to do that,” he said.
Kerry supporters have charged that voting irregularities in largely Democratic areas made it difficult for voters to cast ballots in the November election. A lawsuit in Ohio cited long lines and a shortage of voting machines in predominantly minority neighborhoods, but the Ohio Supreme Court dismissed the suit.
Kerry also cited examples Sunday of how people were duped into not voting.
“Leaflets are handed out saying Democrats vote on Wednesday, Republicans vote on Tuesday. People are told in telephone calls that if you’ve ever had a parking ticket, you’re not allowed to vote,” he said.
Let us assume for the moment, a very short one, these charges are true. Also assume some people were “duped” and failed to vote because thier belief Democrats voted on Wednesday or having amassed a number of parking tickets disqualified them.
Why is this a bad thing? Wouldn’t this be a form of political Darwinism? Survival of the fittest voter, so to speak. If they are so low in mental capabilites to believe this tripe, if true and no evidence is offered, who cares? Good riddence, they would likely vote for Alfred E. Newman anyway.
One final quote from John “The Baroque Candidate” Kerry: “We need to go about the business of making our own democracy in America work better.”
Thanks Senator, it worked just fine.
UPDATE: Chrenkoff has the best retort to Kerry’s bloviating: “Maybe Kerry and Jimmy Carter can form a political consultancy and travel the world; Carter can take care of that half of all the elections that are stolen and swear they are actually legit and Kerry can complain of the other half.”
