My personal musings about anything that gets on my radar screen--heavily dominated by politics.


So, Just To Clear This Up

John Kerry has claimed that he will rebuild our alliances and bring the rest of the world to the table. As evidence of this, two exhibits:

:early statements calling the coalition in Iraq the "Coalition of the Bribed and Coerced"
:today's nearly brilliant comment on the P.M. of Iraq:

Democratic presidential candidate John Kerry said Thursday that Iraq's Ayad Allawi was sent before Congress to put the ``best face'' on Bush administration policy.

Shortly after Allawi, the interim government's prime minister, gave a rosy portrayal of progress toward peace in Iraq, Kerry said the assessment contradicted reality on the ground.

``The prime minister and the president are here obviously to put their best face on the policy, but the fact is that the CIA estimates, the reporting, the ground operations and the troops all tell a different story,'' Kerry said

In other words, those countries who have chosen, at some risk and requiring great courage, to stand with us are dupes and pawns, and the leader of an emerging state who has to stand against assassination attempts on a nearly daily basis is a puppet and a liar.

On the other hand, countries like France, Germany and Russia, all of whom have been implicated as being on the take from Saddam are old friends whose egos need to be massaged, and the U.N.--which supervised a scam the likes of which we've never seen and whose ranks are populated with many of the dregs of world society--is a noble international organization upon whose auspices we must rely.

I'm not sure which bothers me more: the utter irresponsibility of a Presidential candidate insulting the head of another state, or the fact that said Presidential candidate is clearly incapable of recognizing truth. Or perhaps its the fact that almost half the population (including in this state!) seems willing to hand the reins of power over to this loon.

Kinda makes me feel a little less safe driving down the road.
