Despite my self-imposed hiatus from political commentary and blogging in general, I simply had to note these jaw-dropping, un-freaking-believable quotes from Democrats in the last few days.
First, Harold Ford Jr., currently running for Senate in Tennessee:
My friend Lincoln Davis who chairs our campaign says there are, there’s one big difference between us and misfortunate Republicans when it comes to our faith: he said that Republicans fear the Lord; he said Democrats fear AND love the Lord.
Yeah ... that one will go over really big with evangelicals.
But only the effete John Forbes Kerry could top Ford's gaffe with this incredible comment:
You know, education, if you make the most of it, if you study hard and you do your homework, and you make an effort to be smart, uh, you, you can do well. If you don’t, you get stuck in Iraq.
Uh-huh, just like all the losers and bozos who got stuck in Vietnam commanding gunboats, right senator? Maybe George W. Bush wasn't so dumb after all.
I don't know whether to chalk these comments up to the aloof and patronizing attitudes that seem to be such a common trait of wealthy liberals, or just plain stupidity. But with only a week to go before the election, I'm guessing it's probably the latter.
Ooops - almost forgot this one:
