You Did Good Johnny!

Reporting for duty! He let Bush have it. No doubt about it. Tomorrow, the right -wing pundits will call it the most viscious attack given at a political convention ever. Hardly, but all they have to do is say it, and like Kerry told the convention, it doesn't make it so. He was forceful, and eloquent. I, for one, feel much better about the ticket now that I've seen the message played out over the last four days. He spent a lot of time on Iraq and homeland security. And for good reason, Americans are wary, we keep hearing about various plots and threats and waiting for the other shoe to drop.
The second half of the speach was on social issues. Kerry vowed not to privatize social security. "Help is on the Way" was the theme. Kerry asked, "Where is the conscience of our country?" In the towns and cities across the land. Health care is not a privlege it's a right, I couldn't agree more.
Kerry looked in the television and addressed President Bush directly, appealling for a more civil debate over the next few weeks.
Kerry said he didn't wear his faith on his sleeve. My favorite line on this night was when he quoted Lincoln; I don not pray that God be on my side, I pray that we be on God's side." Amen to that. This was a re-invigorated John Kerry, he may not be smoldering with charisma, but he no longer looks like a dead guy in front of the mike. The only hitch, the balloons, the damn balloons.
Next stop New York City, for the GOP lovefest.

Next stop NEW YORK!!!...and, by the way, the other hitch was the Democrat's feeling of BUYER'S REMORSE! You should have stuck it out with Dean --at least he had conviction...

Haven't you heard the slogan, "I dated Dean but married Kerry." In the primaries my man was Wes Clark. But that's ok, he'll make a fine secretary of defense. And he'll have a little house-cleaning to do once he gets there, starting with you, Mr. Paul Wolfowitz.
We shall see, oh yes, we shall see.
