RE: Do you remember Mary Jo Kopechne?
There is plenty of difference between them. This election would not be the knife fight it is otherwise.
I was going to vote for McCain over Gore - I even donated money to the guy. Since he sold out to Bush, I wouldn't vote for him to sweep sidewalks, but up until then, I always thought he was an exceptionally honest man.
The treatment of McCain, the quality of the arguments we get from the right here, Coulter, MIchael Savage, all of it are just symptoms of the intellectual decline of the Republican Party. Like I said, listen to their speeches and their talk radio guys, or read their columnists. They have descended into this huge Straw Man pit, where they invent some alternate universe and then bray at it like jackasses. Idiots then memorize this horseshit and present it as truth.
How many reasonable, intellectual people start from the premise that Kerry is a communist? How many reasonable people actually believe Mary Jo Kopechne plays a part in this election? Unfortunately, I can continue on with things that are complete idiocy - how many people believe Saddam plotted with Bin Laden to committ 9-11? How many people believe Saddam has hidden his WMDs? How many people believe as the President does, that Bin Laden is no longer a threat? How many people believe that the war in Iraq is not about oil? How many people believe our wonderful smart bombs did not kill hardly any innocent people in Iraq? How many people believe systemtic torture of POWs in our custody was only caused by a couple of bad, low ranking apples? How many people believe that Bush "gave the generals what ever they asked for in Iraq? How many people believe "we are making progress in Iraq" ?- and we will find that vast numbers of Republicans believe these and other fairy tales. This alternate universe they create and then try to force us to believe or argue about has lowered the whole level of political discourse in this country, and turned this country into a schzoid mess. If you need any proof - look at the premise of this thread. This thread is a schzoid mess.
