Our narrow escape in 2004

Back in 2004, I wrote an open letter to vice-presidential candidate, John Edwards, which was published here at American Thinker as a Dear John letter. In that posting I warned Edwards that the wagon to which he was hitching his star had a few wheels likely to come off during the course of a presidential campaign where John Kerry’s fellow naval officers during his Vietnam service were publicly declaring him Unfit to Command.

But little did I know then that I was warning off the wrong sleazebag. Events of the last several months have shown us that compared to his second banana, John Kerry was a virtual boy scout, inept, dishonest and totally phony, well yes, but still by comparison, a boy scout.

Well, maybe a Brownie.

Think about it America. The Democrat Party offered you a presidential ticket in which a totally phony war hero sleazebag like John Kerry, who, should he have died in office, would then be succeeded by this noble fellow who was, just a couple of years later, out screwing a young camp follower into illegitimate motherhood while his wife was dealing with possibly terminal cancer.

What a guy, huh? What a jewel of a man to lead America, setting the moral example for all the rest of us, hmmm? Because of this guy, the term Edwardian may someday come to define a form of unbelievably despicable human behavior. Who knows, it could even become synonymous with trial lawyer.

There is a lesson here, America, reaffirmed in the last presidential election; and that is that the Democrats do not vet their candidates for high office worth a damn. I liken their nominating process to the old marketing fallback, “Let’s throw some sh*t at the wall and see what sticks.” It’s hard to believe they could follow that sleazy 2004 team with another just like it in 2008, but they sure did, didn’t they?

You know, I swear I’m getting to the point where I distrust Democrats so much I want to see Joe Biden’s birth certificate.

Know what I mean?

Remember all this come November.
