Kerry Speaks

John Kerry made some remarks yesterday that I found interesting:

The Massachusetts Democrat, Bush's challenger in November, spoke at Boston's annual Martin Luther King Jr. Day Breakfast. He reiterated that he decided not to challenge the election results, but said "thousands of people were suppressed in the effort to vote."

"Voting machines were distributed in uneven ways. In Democratic districts, it took people four, five, 11 hours to vote, while Republicans [went] through in 10 minutes -- same voting machines, same process, our America," he said.

He's absolutely right. And yet, what do I think when I read this? I think - Shut up John. You had your opportunity to speak on this issue when Conyers and Boxer challenged the Ohio vote. And you were out of the country.

So just shut up.

Anyone that supports Kerry for president in 2008 is just senseless. A competent candidate, with competent handlers destroys Bush last November. Kerry chose Shrum and couldn't stay on message and the rest is history.

So I'm feeling a little bitter towards John Kerry right now.
