Podesta, Go Home

I just sputter at the thought of John Podesta, Clintonista, knocking George W. Bush’s service in the National Guard, spewing that Kerry has shrapnel in his thigh, while Bush got two fillings in Alabama on ABC today. Have you no decency, sir? Have you no consistency? You spent most of the 1990s working for a man who signed up for the U. of Arkansas ROTC, then skipped out for Oxford without serving a day. (George Stephanopoulos, looking completely compromised as usual, wasn’t about to bring Clinton up.) I can’t imagine how John O’Neill could keep his cool so well in the face of the usual Carvillian outbursts.

It’s very sad that John Kerry, a man who might want to seem more honorable than Clinton, is so utterly reliant on sending out the same old slimy spin merchants instead of having the courage and the character to sit next to John O’Neill and defend himself.

Conservative prime minister Scott Morrison shocked pollsters and pundits alike with his victory on Saturday, and the reaction has been brutal ... Read More
