Riding The Kerry-Go-Round

Kos diarist GrainofSand sez, Oh! Hell No:

Dear Senator Kerry,

The email* you sent me and 3 million others today was titled, "Counting on You to Make Sure Votes Get Counted." Excuse me, Sir, but it is WE who are counting on YOU to make sure votes get counted. It is YOU who can stand on the floor of the Senate, not us. I can only vote for you, which I did. I trusted you. I will not make that mistake again.

It was YOU who was the party standard-bearer in the last election. It is YOU who should be here, standing up for Ohio's voters, not on a junket somewhere in the Middle East.

Your cowardly, excuse-filled email says you will be proposing a future study of the election problems. Well guess what. We tried to rationally legislate on voting issues with the GOP over the last four years. It led to this fiasco in Ohio, New Mexico and elsewhere.

I distinctly remember your starting your convention speech saying, "John Kerry, reporting for duty.' Well, as far as I'm concerned, you are AWOL now.

Don't come crawling back in 2008. You, Bill Richardson (who blocked a recount in New Mexico so as not to remind us he lost his own state), and the other losers who run the Democratic Party have proven you care only about your own political future. I hope someone else with backbone is willing to stand up for democracy tomorrow on the Senate floor, even if his political career is jeopardized.

If Howard Dean or some other kick-ass person does not reinvigorate the Democratic Party soon, the Democratic Party is dead. It will be the Whig Party of the 21st Century.

In 2008, what is left of the Democratic faithful will be looking for a leader with guts. An FDR, or a JFK. And you, Sir, are no JFK.

When shoulda coulda woulda ain't gooda enough.

US presidential hopeful Mitt Romney has won a clear victory in the Republican primary election in Florida, official results indicate.

Mr Romney polled 46%, but rival Newt Gingrich, who only managed 32%, says he has no intention of dropping out.

Florida's primary was the biggest of the 2012 election season so far and saw a bitter TV ad battle between the men hoping to take on Barack Obama.
