its not hard to see what side the liberal writer is on.
Although i do not agree with george W and some of his doings, I still feel he was the lesser of two evils, at least I thought at the time.
Well, I still do feel that way, kerry was a flip flopping horses that decided to say what the crowd of the day wanted to hear, and this he did on many issues.
I think he would have won more votes if he stood steadfast on topics and issues at the time.

Yeah, they both suck. Maybe it has something to do with the DNA they share.

Hunter S. Thompson is a genius! Too bad he wastes all that talent writing about how his man John Kerry lost to G.W. Sounds to me like maybe G.W. in Thompsons milk at some point in time.

Check out the section where he talks about Bush attenting a party he was having and Bush making an out of himself. Thompson was alway about politics.

I think there is a difference in doing what the people want, and telling them what they want to hear.

He just didn't seem genuine at all. He seemed like a slimy car salesman that would tell you anything to sell you a car. :eh:
