Osama and John, Desperate for Attention 

Yesterday, John Kerry, playing to the uber rich, uber cool, uber elite Davos crowd, said he was going to try to stir up a filibuster against the confirmation of Judge Alito. I instantly thought of Osama's tape from last week, coming out of the cave to threaten the US and sue for peace at the same time. Both political outbursts struck me as desperate and not a little pathetic. Even ridiculous.

A Kerry-led filibuster against Alito will provide Karl Rove an amazing tool to further the fortunes of Republicans for the November 2006 interim elections, and fail to prevent Alito's eventual ascension to the Supreme Court. How do we know this? Robert Byrd is voting for Alito. He's up for reelection in November. He's an idiot, but he ain't no dummy. All the Red State Democratic Senators are voting for Alito.

So what on earth is Kerry doing? Fundraising, recruiting the flaky left of the Democratic Party, begging for attention. All of that. Just like Osama, really. But it's a loser. He's a loser. They're both losers. To quote a brilliant friend of mine, the "Churl" strikes again.

Joining those who would tie American leaders to the most notorious terrorist in the world? Despicable. Really. Who are you? Bill O'Reilly?

No - remember,

PS - I was merely observing that they were both voices from the wilderness, overseas, seeking to echieve a remarkably similar political result.

I would note that you didn't say I was wrong.

And I like Bill O'Reilly by the way. I have a coffee mug of his right by my "I love Gitmo" t-shirt.

Screwy, honestly.

When you look at Kerry, he knows what he's doing doesn't have a chance in hell of succeeding and will only cost the US taxpayer money, and yet he is doing it anyway. What would you call it?

His own party member said it best:

"One of the first responsibilities of someone in Congress is to learn how to count," the Illinois Democrat said. "Having made a count, I have come to the conclusion it is highly unlikely that a filibuster would succeed."

Until a week ago, I had thought that the Republicans were going to lose a couple of seats in the House and Senate. Now I am not too sure. Some of the top Dems seem to be taking actions that will help in the in the '08 primaries, and hurt the Dems in general elections in '06 and '08.
