An open letter to John Kerry

Dear Senator Kerry,

I’m a proud registered Democrat who desperately wants George Bush Jr. run out of Washington, D.C. as soon as possible. His systematic assault on civil liberties along with his commitment to an unjustifiable war are reason enough to have the man tarred & feathered. Vice President Dick Cheaney and U.S. Attorney General John Ashcroft are two of the scariest Republicans since Nixon & Goldwater and also need the boot. Rarely do you find a Yale graduate who can barely complete a sentence but that is what we have got with Jr.

However, I am beside myself with dismay at the DNC and their apparent lack of a tangible platform. All that we the voting public has heard from your campaign and the Democratic leadership is that you hate Bush Jr. Enough already! We get it, you do not like Bush and that suits me just fine. The problem lies in the fact that your campaign has yet to forward a concrete position on such vital issues as the war in Iraq, education, the economy, gay marriage, etc.

Quite frankly the voting public is growing weary of the constant negativity and laser like focus on telling everyone what a schmuck you think Bush is. In case you have not noticed your poll numbers are lagging and you are on the verge of being the first presidential candidate in history to lose an election after holding double-digit leads in the polls in April & May.

It is not too late to salvage the campaign but you need to act fast. You’re running against Dumb & Dumber so we’re not talking about a monumental task. But watching your current effort is like watching a moth at a light bulb. I’ve seen corks in bath tubs with more direction. Please don’t let this opportunity pass. We can’t afford four more years of Jr. and his henchmen.


Thine Holy Hand Granade
