Quote Of The Day - Reporting For Duty Edition

"[I]t was an outpatient procedure to repair cartilage in his knee, which was damaged by "years of soccer, hockey and marathon running."
Spokeswoman April Boyd, referring to the knee surgery Sen. John Kerry recently underwent. Kerry's soccer prowess is legendary, though his marathon running is a bit suspect.

This is a perfect example of what Princeton University Philosophy Professor Harry Frankfurt refers to as "Bullshit" in his highly respect book On Bullshit. http://screenshotblog.blogspot.com/2005/03/on-bullshit.html

And we in Massachusetts that have known him for 25 years, Republican and Democrat alike, have known it all along.

Mendacity. It's certainly an equal opportunity vice, but it did not evade John Kerry by a long shot.

The Marathon thing just gets me laughing every time. As it did every time last year whenever Kerry made his bombastic misrepresentations as to his running prowess and, um, marathon experience.

He really, really NEEDED to write his own reports about his "combat" service because, otherwise, someone actually deserving of them might have taken all the limelight.

P.S.: anyone who HAS run "years of Marathon" activity knows that he would not have, could not have, had he/she had torn knee cartilege. Maybe around the house, up and down the street, but not plural Marathons. Kerry's very problem is a surefire indication that he's again being bombastic, or at least his spokesperson is.

He still carries the lucky jockstrap the CIA agent gave him.

Remeber Rosie Ruiz, who fraudulently claimed to have run and won the entire Boston Marathon about 1980?
