You know it’s bad when…
Kerry’s got to grab his party by the lapels and slap some sense into them. “I don’t need more Bush-is-the-boogeyman scenarios!” he needs to tell them. “Start talking about me. Talk about my vision, my character, my qualities, my policies and ideas. I’m turning into an afterthought in my own campaign! It’s not Bush versus Rather, or Bush versus Michael Moore, or Bush versus George Soros! It’s Bush versus me. I mean, Jeez, not even that punk who writes the Kerry Spot writes much about me anymore!”
You know it’s bad when Kerry becomes a bit player on a blog called “Kerry Spot.”
It is funny but the larger point is that the advice given is sound. Kerry needs to get back into the race. That might seem impossible as we view the world thru a lens of today’s headlines. But remember, with 47 days (and the debates) left to go, it is unlikely he will stay on the sidelines forever.
For all you Bush fans out there, just remember this advice cuts two ways… “It’s not Bush versus Rather, or Bush versus Michael Moore, or Bush versus George Soros! It’s Bush versus [Kerry]”
Don’t forget to keep your eye on the ball.
If you think that is obvious advice, look at the mountains of time the liberals spent trying to running the Swifties down, forgetting that they aren’t on he ballot.
