Who, Me Angry?

Damn fucking straight. YT's mad as hell. I should never watch cable news before my first bottle of wine.

Media whores. All of them. 59 and counting wannabe Iraqi policemen were blown to bits this morning, hundreds wounded, car bombs abound around Iraq killing dozens, injuring innocents, Bush was aWol, no health care for millions but assault weapons for everyone -- including terrorists! -- and what does our SCLM report...Hurricane Fucking Ivan, a storm still three days away from the American coastline. What. The. Fuck?!

The Media whores could at least report that Hurrican Ivan *ahem* forced Jeb Bush's elections chief to allow Ralph Nader on the Florida ballot, despite a court order.

What's really got YT riled today is John F. Kerry. His advisors are sucking ass and he's allowing them to blow his campaign. If he loses in November, it'll be his own fault. Paul Krugman echos my thought exactly:
U.S. news organizations are under constant pressure to report good news from Iraq. In fact, as a Newsweek headline puts it, "It's worse than you think." Attacks on coalition forces are intensifying and getting more effective; no-go zones, which the military prefers to call "insurgent enclaves," are spreading - even in Baghdad. We're losing ground.

And the losses aren't only in Iraq. Al Qaeda has regrouped. The invasion of Iraq, intended to demonstrate American power, has done just the opposite: nasty regimes around the world feel empowered now that our forces are bogged down. When a Times reporter asked Mr. Bush about North Korea's ongoing nuclear program, "he opened his palms and shrugged."

Yet many voters still believe that Mr. Bush is doing a good job protecting America.

If Senator John Kerry really has advisers telling him not to attack Mr. Bush on national security, he should dump them. When Dick Cheney is saying vote Bush or die, responding with speeches about jobs and health care doesn't cut it.

Mr. Kerry should counterattack by saying that Mr. Bush is endangering the nation by subordinating national security to politics.

Yes! It's true. Why isn't Kerry nailing Bush on national security? It is supposed to be Bush's strongest asset and yet we all know it is in fact his weakest. Why hasn't Kerry held a press conference and ripped Team Bush a new ass, over and over again, about Bush's failed policies in Iraq. When does John Kerry demand, like he did three decades ago, that not another soldier should die for a mistake???????!

What does Kerry have to lose by getting tough on Bush's national and international security failings? The Presidency? YT has a bit of advice for Mr. Kerry: You'll damn sure lose in November if you don't.

Yup! The Repuglicans are going for the throat, and Kerry is LETTING THEM set the agenda. If Kerry loses, it's because of his own incompetence during this campaign, because Bush surely has given him more that enough ammunition, on a silver platter. Maybe those conspiracy-types have a point-that the election was pre-ordained, and the "winner" already picked, because how could anybody lose against a man like Bush? He has absolutely nothing going for him, and mountains of reasons for Americans to turn against him. But then again, I went over to the Democratic Underground site last night and I read the latest "letters" section update, and I have to tell ya, I had to laugh and laugh-to prevent myself from crying. There is a lot of stoopid fucking people in this world, and they vote, too. We are in trouble...
