Finally, the heroic George W. Bush we have been expecting has finally stepped to the plate to bravely look in the eyes of the slave-holding planter class to say: "No more! The Dred Scott decision was wrong! My administration will not appoint Supreme Court justices who support the Dred Scott decision!"
The president's words were not so eloquent, but we understood his meaning. The Dred Scott decision was the line in the sand that will not be crossed! And America has gone wild, knowing that this would be the leader for the new millennium!
BACK TO REALITY:
Wow! Did you see that? In Friday's debate, the president made a number of ridiculous statements, repeating a number of blatant lies and distortions that all the adult voters have already gotten sick of, seemed on the verge of a tantrum, and then he decided to show off the knowledge he had gotten from his history degree from Yale by evoking the Dred Scott decision. He doesn't seem to remember what the Dred Scott decision was about, but I'm sure he thought the yokels would be impressed that he remembered the name!
The Republican spin, echoed by the so-called liberal media, seems to be saying that the president won because he looked better than he did in the first debate. I didn't see the first debate, and I am absolutely stunned that he could have been any worse than what I saw last night. The Republican spin has set the bar for the president so low that he wins unless he wets himself. (And if that happens, they will find some way to make a positive out of it. "The president wet himself because he spends so much time working on keeping this country safe that he didn't have time to go to the bathroom.")
The Republican spin isn't working because millions of Americans are now having a chance to see for themselves what a BIG BABY he is, a pampered, isolated, elite frat boy who has never had to face the consequences of his actions. Honest Republicans should be embarrassed that, in a party that includes good men like John McCain and Richard Lugar, the best the party could offer in 2000 was - ugh! - George W. Bush and Richard Cheney.
But who are you going to believe? The Fox News Fantasy World? Or your own eyes?
SAVE THE REPUBLICAN PARTY! VOTE KERRY!
