FloodWords: Doughy Rush Limbaugh


Since Flood has no blog to sound off on, I thought I'd take a 20 second timeout from the NBA forecasts and touch on the John Kerry/"White House and them" feud over JK's botched joke.

First off, how about this from Kerry:
“I’m not going to be lectured by a stuffed-suit White House mouthpiece standing behind a podium, or doughy Rush Limbaugh, who no doubt today will take a break from belittling Michael J. Fox’s Parkinson’s disease to start lying about me...”
You mean we didn't elect that guy? Anyway, here's the botch:

"You know, education, if you make the most of it, you study hard, you do your homework and you make an effort to be smart, you can do well. If you don’t, you get stuck in Iraq."
All the attention paid to this and the continual White House "responses" are a joke. Of course the AM mushmouths are going to try to run with it, but how is this even on the radar at the nation's capital? Anyone who thinks any politician's intent at a speaking engagement is to disrespect American troops is thinking foolishly, to put it politely.

Then there's this nugget:
“If it was a botched joke, someone show me the punch line.” White House spokeswoman Dana Perino said.
Uhhh, the punch line would be the clumsy cartoon character you're spokeswomanning for. You gotta love the irony in Bush supporters reacting to another's "botched" speech. It's akin to Vlade Divac complaining about an opposing center's false flops. I saw a video clip of the botch and the way Kerry lost his train of thought and started hesitating and looking down was painfully similar to the hesitation and discomfort Dubya showed when he was rehashing that ol' Texas saying.

Last word goes to Keith Olbermann:

"Kerry called them stupid, and they were too stupid to know he called them stupid."

Labels:

I was never a huge Kerry fan, but I think he has contracted the dreaded Gore-itis: being much more interesting, decisive, passionate and likeable after his election defeat.

Although Kerry caught a much milder case than Al Gore.

Still, I would not want Kerry to run in '08. Howeva, I would be more than okay with a Gore campaign.

Vote Rendell and Casey on Tuesday!
