What better way to help your lack of justification for a war than making fun of it?

    Is it me or have all liberals lost their sense of humor?

    ~Checks~

    Nope, it's not me. Lighten up a bit. What do you think you're blood pressure will do after he's re-elected? I'm thinking you're going to blow a vessel in your brain

    I figured those particular lines would draw some fire, but the rest of the speech was actually pretty funny.

    I especially liked the trading cards to remember the names of foreign leaders bit. :D

    I'm sure this will make die-hard democrats not want to vote for Bush. :scratch:

    Wow. That's one of those things you just can't help but look at and have absolutely no reaction. It's not funny, and it's not disturbing or outrageous. It's something from the Twilight Zone. This absolutely has to be fiction, it's not possible for this to have happened in my universe.

    "I made your kids die for nothing, hahahahahahahahaha get it? Vote for me!"

    I thought it was rather humorous myself, really. What is he supposed to do, make a somber funeral out of everything? I see it as a way of pointing out his own deficiencies rather than hiding them.

    Methinks the ones whining about this just need to get laid. Maybe that'll get them out of their deep blue funk

    Could you really have seen himself done something else?

    I think I understand what you are saying, though it made my eyes and brain cross to read it.
    Yes, that is what is funny about it, to me; it's just so typical of something he might do that it makes me spontaneously laugh. It's also harmless, if tasteless. And I've been known before to say thoughtless things that I regretted later, but it's all done now but the flaming, right?

    He could have done anything else and it would have been better. Now that he made the war a joke, his opposition's campaigning will definitly consist of Bush looking like a fool with this being the main argument.

    Kerry joked in 1988: "Somebody told me the other day that the Secret Service has orders that if George Bush is shot, they're to shoot Quayle. There isn't any press here, is there?"

    I'm sure Ragnar and th5413 are just as disapproving of Kerry' words as Bush's. Right? Guys? You're doubting that Kerry wants to be president? Bad move for Kerry, bad move?

    Pathetic.

    Don't forget that after Sen. Kerry wiped out on Baldy Mtn. in Sun Valley, he blamed his Secret Service detail for it. He said, And I quote, "That son of a B*(female dog) knocked me down".

    Bad Kerry! No presidency!

    Sure thing toots. Just get Nova and FleshGordan in here to witness and Durf to film it!

    MatMan : If someone had just attempted to assassinate Bush before Kerry made that joke, it might be comparable I suppose. Or was this just after the attempted military coup by a certain salt-laden baked good?

    <edit> Just realised it's the wrong Bush.. ah well... Shame to let a good pretzel gag go to waste... Whah, pretzel gag? There I go again! <slaps self>

    Like I said, this will incite rage only in people who were already pro-Kerry. This will make some people wish they could vote against Bush 10X instead of 9X, but they can still only vote against him once...

    I'm rambling and not making any sense.

    This whole war thing wasn't very thought out. I'm not sure if it was a good idea to go to war or not. In the beginning I was in support of it, but now after seeing what has happened I don't think it was. It doesn't seem that there was any post-war plan developed. This seems like a big gimmock to help Dubya get re-elected. We didn't take their oil, we didn't take their land, what did we do? We sent a country into chaos, into total anarchy (and not the good kind). The whole thing was either an elaborate plan to get re-elected, an act of insanity, or more than likely, from observing George W. Bush, an act of not smartness.

    As though that ever stopped them. Remember, 100,000 dead Republicans voted for Gore in Detroit alone last time around :scratch:
