November 2012 Edit:
Apologies for missing image files in these older comments (2005 and earlier), but, after this site was moved from one server to another and then moved again before settling down on my current host in 2005 or thereabouts, many older posts such as here resulted in broken links due to site reassignment of file locations. All the image files still exist as saved by me but I have not quite completed editing all older posts, as here, to restablish image files — but I will do so this month.
The news that broke this morning/last night, via Red State and The Washington Times with Wizbang‘s help, has been attempted to be named “a non story” by liberal media sources applying that gloss of counter spin. Mistake by those hapless Kerry apologists is in assuming the information is spin, such that a counter spin is an appropriate response to the information — because ‘spin’ implies an unreality to information, something manufactured to generate something else, for a targeted purpose, so counter with same, turn the top the other way around, and around and around. But the ongoing information leaking out, glob by glob, isn’t spin, it’s evidence of a human being named John Kerry who can’t keep a story straight, whose self created life aspects and positionings defy fact and witness, who is a creation of his own imagination, who promotes himself based upon fiction: if it sounds good, reads well, it’s a go, without regard to genre. A life isn’t fiction, character is the man — rewrite either or both based upon imagination and you create a lie based upon a lie, a fictional character, not a man. Not a real one, at least.
No, there’s certainly a story here: what John Kerry has been exposed as having done and continuing to do is lie about himself, his activities, his beliefs, what he means, does not mean, intends, does not intend, who he associates with, who associates with him, and how all that happens or does not happen. Easy for most of us to apply the “flip flop” standard to Kerry but it’s an application due to frustration, not humor, based upon the ongoing expose about a person, John Kerry, who has tales to tell as big as China, bigger than the moon, larger than the universe, beyond the pale, limitless. The human imagination is a powerful thing, but used to self identify by a person about the person, is downright creepy. These are big things, very big things, and the lies are very big things. The man is not.Just in time for Halloween:
Never Apologize, Never Explain
From the November 1 / November 8, 2004 issue:
John Kerry’s real record as an antiwar activist.
by Joshua Muravchik
11/01/2004, Volume 010, Issue 08…
Why John Kerry is no Catholic, and questionable as a Christian, despite Kerry’s boasts to the contrary. Anyone can quote scripture and many do, but it’s who a person is and, accordingly, what a person believes in and does that makes for a life in service to Jesus Christ.
I notice that Kerry never mentions Jesus Christ.
Read marcland, who provides a comprehensive roundup of articles (about the recent Kerry burst of “faith” declarations, given that polls reflect Americans prefer a Presidential candidate with believable religious principles. Unfortunately, many Democrats still hate Christians and Christianity, not to mention the Catholic Church and the principles represented by the Church, so, there’s that).
