John Kerry put his foot in his mouth while speaking to college students when he admonished them to study hard or they would wind up stuck in Iraq. If you thought the guy was stupid because he is planning to run for president again in 2008, that bon mot should remove all doubt. Kerry managed to offend everyone from veterans to President Bush on that one by implying soldiers are uneducated cannon fodder and good for nothing else. Kerry defiantly offered no apologies. He just said it was a joke gone run. What a coinsidence. That is exactly how I describe his 2004 presidential bid.
Speaking of 2008, lay off the speculation Baraclk Obama wants to run for president. He wants the Veep spot under Hillary Clinton and he will probably get it. He may be ambitious, but he is no idiot. He wants to spend eight years as the second in command then glide into the Big Seat in 2016. History is not on his side. Outside of Bush 411 after Reagan, it has been decades since the Veep made the big jump. Will he change that trend? Doubtful. Even in the long shot Hillary chooses him and wins at all, much less two terms, expect an even more intense version of Clinton fatigue to set in around about 2015.
Reese Witherspoon is single. Billie Piper is single. Evangeline Lilly is still dating that Hobbit, but she is weird an unpredictable. Give it more time, but my harem is falling into place.
It looks like I survived October. Glory be. The days are already unusually cold for this time of year. I am not a fan of cold weather. It always bugs me when we get cold spells early on. November looks to be an unusually cold month as well. Shades of Virginia coming back to haunt me at home? It would not surprise me at all. At least I get turkey as a consolation prize towards the end. See you on the flip side with more blogging goodness.
