The befuddlement of the Democratic Party is illustrated in the final paragraph of this article which so aptly defines their “circular firing squad” stance in the Final Days.
That they believe a little standup comedy delivered by a guy who looks like he just lost the bolt in his neck is going to “energize” young people is just astonishing. Who gets paid a salary to dream up this kind of strategy? Do they have no memory of the quote from a guy at the Bruce Springsteen concert in 2004 to energize the crowd for Dean? “I’m just here for the music.” If the Boss couldn’t deliver, why do they think Kerry, who has a mind like a flat-iron is going to fire anyone’s ambition to vote.p>Have none of them read that since the 18-year-old vote came into being in 1972, registration and participation in that age group has steadily declined. In the intervening 30+ years they have so many new distracting toys, so much more idle time, voting is the furthest thing from their tiny minds. They are wandering the malls, instant messaging their friends 15 ft. ahead, forgetting their math assignment, missing curfew. You can’t get them to clean their rooms, how are you going to get them to vote? When you think about it, how many 18-year-olds do you know who can even name our vice president today? And the Dems rely on that as their base? We’ll see. br> — Diane Smith br> South San Francisco, California /p>
Kerry hasn’t apologized yet! His speechwriter has. Kerry was man to misspeak, and man enough to say that he wouldn’t apologize and now he isn’t man enough to admit he “misspoke”; instead, he said it was misinterpreted by the right.p>Freudian slips show the hearts: Kerry isn’t man enough to apologize. Is he man enough to defend this country? I doubt it. br> — Stu Margrey br> Denton, Maryland
A man of faith in a godless age is hitting Americans where it hurts.
Mr. and Mrs. American Spectator Reader, let P.J. O’Rourke talk sense to your kids.
In Britain, defending your property can get you life.
The debacle of this president’s administration is both a cause and a symptom of the decline of American values. Unless Congress impeaches him, that decline will go on unchecked. An eminent jurist surveys the damage and assesses the chances for the recovery of our culture.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
