New definition of a man for all seasons

Whether he's running-down Secret Service agents on the ski slopes, donning a blue bunny suit at NASA, windsurfing this way and that across the TV screen or ...well, lets let Maureen describe it.

Cooking His Own Goose

By MAUREEN DOWD
Published: October 24, 2004

In yet another attempt to prove to George W. Bush that he is man enough to run this country, John Kerry made an animal sacrifice to the political gods in a cornfield in eastern Ohio last week.

Four dead geese are not too high a price to pay for a few rural, blue-collar votes in a swing state. As long as Mr. Kerry doesn't slip and ask Teresa to purée the carcasses into foie gras.

Tromping about in a camouflage costume and toting a 12-gauge double-barreled shotgun that shrieked "I am not a merlot-loving, brie-eating, chatelaine-marrying dilettante," the Democratic nominee emerged from his shooting spree with three fellow hunters proclaiming, "Everybody got one, everybody got one," showing off a hand stained with goose blood.

Maureen needs to get a hold of a culinary dictionary.

I agree it was a pretty embarrassing display. I can only assume that the folks running Kerry's campaign are a lot smarter than me.

RE: New definition of a man for all seasons

I actually posted the following at another site just a few days before:
Quote:
What is it that Bush admirers see in this man? Is it his massive intellect, his awe-inspiring communication skills, his solid judgement and candor? These are the qualities I want in a POTUS, not some good ol' boy who wants to go duck hunting on the weekends.
Hangs head in shame...

Yeah, the showed him as a real "Man's man". What you didn't see behind the camera was the Rolls Royce (the same on he drove into Detroit) and his jet waiting for him at the airport...

But what I want too know is, if he had the appropriate out of state hunting license and water fowl stamp.

I am sure the poverty struck Bush family just wouldn't know what it was like to live like that.
