From New Sisyphus
Insert the words "politicians and activists" every time he says "liberal", and I think he and PJ O'Rourke aren't that far off.
O’Rourke concluded that the night he spoke this words, Kerry had, in effect, gone beyond the pale in what is acceptable in American political discourse:
"It's hard for an American politician to come up with an ideological position that is permanently unforgivable. Henry Wallace never quite managed, or George Wallace either. But Kerry's done it. American free speech needs to be submitted to arbitration because Americans aren't smart enough to have a First Amendment, and you can tell this is so, because Americans weren't smart enough to vote for John Kerry."
Make sure to read the whole article by O'Rourke. It's really quite sad and telling when Ted Kennedy can't even be bothered to show up to give you an award named after his own brother.
Memo to John kerry: Those of us who did not vote you are not stupid people*. Please quit treating us and addressing us as if we are. You are helping no one's cause every time you and your peers do so. We can tell when we are being patronized and condescended to, and we do not care for it. Thank you.
*Well, we're not stupid solely because we chose not to vote for Kerry. Some of us are in other ways quite freakin' nuts, as as some who did vote for Kerry. Wingnuts vs Moonbats, anyone?
