John Kerry Watch

by Donald A. Tevault

''I actually did vote for the $87 billion before I voted against it.''
--Senator John Kerry

The presidential campaign is heating up, and it looks like John Kerry will be the Democrat's pick-of-the-litter for this fall. Of course, everyone thought that John Dean would be an interesting--and entertaining--candidate. But, John Kerry is proving to be equally as entertaining. He's a Vietnam-era anti-war protester who constantly reminds us of his service in Vietnam, a U.S. Senator who constantly voted to weaken our military and intelligence-gathering capabilities and now complains that President Bush hasn't been effective with the war on terror, and a big government liberal who won't admit he's liberal. He also has a unique way of tailoring his campaign message for different audiences, by telling one audience the opposite of what he just told the last one. And, let us not forget his tendency to use "colorful metaphors" when giving interviews and when talking to his Secret Service agents. Oh yeah, this is going to be fun.

So I now present to you, the "John Kerry Watch Page". Enjoy, and check back often.
